The Capital - - SPORTS - AP AP

Stephen Curry has a mild to moder­ate left groin strain and will miss the War­riors’ home game against the Nets on Satur­day night.

Curry un­der­went an MRI exam Fri­day, but the War­riors will wait a few days to de­ter­mine the sever­ity of the in­jury. Coach Steve Kerr said it doesn’t ap­pear to be sig­nif­i­cant. The two-time league MVP was hurt mid­way through the third quar­ter of Thurs­day night’s 134-111 loss to the Bucks. ■ Joel Em­biid scored 16 of his 42 points in the fourth quar­ter to help the 76ers beat the Hor­nets 133-132 in OT on Fri­day in Philadel­phia. Em­biid also fin­ished with 18 re­bounds, and hit a ty­ing 3 with 34.4 sec­onds to go in reg­u­la­tion . ... The Pis­tons scored 40 points in the first quar­ter and went on to beat the Hawks 124-109 in At­lanta. ... Caris LeVert hit a floater in the lane with 0.3 sec­onds left and the Nets scored the last six points to beat the Nuggets 112-110 in Den­ver. It was the third straight win for the Nets. ... Joe In­gles matched his ca­reer high with 27 points to help the Jazz out­last the Celtics 123-115 in Salt Lake City.

The Bru­ins said goal­tender Tuukka Rask was granted a leave of absence from the team for a per­sonal mat­ter.

The team didn’t of­fer an ex­pla­na­tion, but gen­eral man­ager Don Sweeney said shortly af­ter the an­nounce­ment Fri­day it wasn’t health re­lated. He also asked for pri­vacy on be­half of Rask.

Rask has started only seven of the Bru­ins’ 15 games and ac­knowl­edged be­ing re­cently out­played by Jaroslav Halak. ■ John Tavares scored, Pa­trick Mar­leau recorded his 600th ca­reer as­sist and the Leafs beat the Devils 6-1 in the Hall of Fame Game on Fri­day in Toronto. It was the third straight win for the Leafs . ... Chad John­son made 32 saves for his first shutout of the sea­son, help­ing the Blues beat the Sharks 4-0 in St. Louis. Alex Pi­etrangelo, Ryan O’Reilly, Jaden Schwartz, and Alexan­der Steen scored . ... Dy­lan Larkin scored with 5.1 sec­onds left in OT to lift the Red Wings to a 3-2 win over the Rangers in Detroit.

CJ Mass­in­burg had 43 points and 14 re­bounds as vis­it­ing Buf­falo stunned No. 13 West Vir­ginia 99-94 in over­time.

Jeremy Har­ris added 16 points and nine re­bounds for the Bulls in the opener for both teams. Buf­falo ral­lied with a late 15-4 surge to force OT be­fore outscor­ing the Moun­taineers 15-10 in the ex­tra pe­riod.
