OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) -- Golden State Warriors point guard Stephen Curry and center Andrew Bogut will have arthroscopic ankle surgery in hopes of returning for the start of next season.

Warriors general manager Larry Riley says the operations will be done Wednesday in Van Nuys, Calif.

Curry had surgery to repair a tendon in his right ankle last summer. He repeatedly sprained his troublesome ankle this season while playing only 26 games.

Bogut fractured his left ankle Jan. 25 against Houston before coming over in a trade from Milwaukee. Riley calls the procedure on Bogut's ankle "routine." He says the 7-foot Australian will not play for his country's Olympic team this summer.

A timetable for their recovery will be determined after surgery.
