The Seth Curry injury saga is over.

The Mavericks’ shooting guard will undergo season-ending surgery to repair a left tibia fracture, sources told ESPN’s Gene Wojnarowski.

He is expected to recover in three months and could return to the court just before the start of NBA free-agency in July.

Curry had not played in a game this season after suffering the injury in a preseason game against the Orlando Magic in October. He recently said that he’d hoped to return this season, but opted to have surgery instead.

The 27-year-old enjoyed a bit of a breakout campaign with the Mavericks last season, averaging just under 13 points per game.

Curry is slated to become a free-agent this off-season, but Dallas will likely be interested in retaining his services due to their hole at the shooting guard position.
