CHARLOTTE, N.C. — A healthy Stephen Curry is looking forward to spending this offseason improving his game instead of than rehabbing from another ankle surgery.

The Golden State Warriors point guard said Monday that he feels great, unlike the last two seasons when he spent months recovering from surgery on his troublesome right ankle.

Curry was bothered by a sore left ankle during the NBA postseason but said he started working out this week and has "no limits."

"It's huge," Curry said Monday during a break from hosting a youth basketball camp at Charlotte Christian, his high school alma mater. "Mentally, that's the biggest part. You don't have to worry about the rehab. It wears on you every day knowing you have to wake up and do these mundane exercises to get your range of motion back."

Curry is coming off a breakout season in his fourth year, averaging 22.9 points and 6.9 assists while helping the Warriors reach the playoffs for the first time in six years.
