Seth Curry became a major contributor for the first time in his NBA career last year with the Dallas Mavericks, but it sounds like the team will have to begin the upcoming season without him.Earl K. Sneed of Mavs.com reported Saturday that the Mavericks told him Curry suffered a stress reaction in his left tibia and is out indefinitely. A stress reaction is the step before a stress fracture, so there is probably some question about how quickly Curry will heal.Curry appeared in 70 games for…

Kenyon Martin is doing his best to set the record straight about his “feud” with Brooklyn Nets guard Jeremy Lin.Speaking to Rohan Nadkarni of Sports Illustrated on Friday, the ex-All-Star attempted to clarify his recent remarks bashing Lin for wearing dreadlocks.“This was never meant to be racial,” said Martin. “It was thought of as what would’ve been done in our locker room. It would’ve been jokes. We would’ve been making jokes. It’s far from racist. I guess saying “Wanting to be black” ma…
