Well….if you have to use it and can’t afford to replace it. Glue two good boards together that have been milled. Run one side of the curved board through the planner…it will smooth it, but not impact the curve. Then glue it up with clamps, the two straight boards will straighten it. When that sets, repeat for the other. No different then putting a curve in some wood with a curved form, just doing the inverse. Do put it in the opposite direction. The amount of curve seems minor to me…assuming you are stacking them side to side vs an edge to edge glue up.
