Curry injury isn’t serious
Warriors’ guard will be sidelined for a while with adductor strain
Stephen Curry is so vital to the Warriors that his most minor of injuries are cause for concern.
Late Thursday night, even as they watched Curry laugh and joke in the locker room after hurting his groin in a loss to Milwaukee, his teammates hoped that Curry’s latest setback wouldn’t be more serious than it appeared. Little more than 12 hours later, Golden State got some good news: An MRI exam revealed that Curry had suffered only a mild-to-moderate left adductor strain.
Curry is expected to miss multiple games, starting with Saturday night’s matchup against the Nets at Oracle Arena, and head coach Steve Kerr said the two-time MVP will need “at least a few days” before returning to practice. With five months until the playoffs, the Warriors see no need to rush the face of the franchise back to the court.
“The MRI was encouraging,” Kerr said. “It’ll be kind of a day-to-day thing. Obviously, we won’t do anything crazy. He’s going to be out until he’s healthy.”
