Seth Curry on stress reaction in his left tibia: "We're looking at getting off it for this week, week and a half and seeing how it progresses from there. There's not really an exact timeframe when I could be back. It could be a week, could not. I'm just trying to be smart about it and let it heal up quick before it gets worse or continues to linger."
