War­riors star forced out

The London Free Press - - SPORTS -

Stephen Curry has a mild to moder­ate left groin strain and will miss Golden State’s home game against Brook­lyn on Sat­ur­day night. Curry un­der­went an MRI exam Fri­day but the War­riors will wait a few days to fully de­ter­mine the sever­ity of the in­jury. Coach Steve Kerr said it doesn’t ap­pear to be sig­nif­i­cant. “This doesn’t look like it’s go­ing to be a long-term in­jury. He’s dis­ap­pointed but it could have been a lot worse,” Kerr said. The two-time NBA MVP was hurt mid­way through the third quar­ter of Thurs­day night’s 134-111 loss to the Mil­wau­kee Bucks. Curry grabbed at his in­ner thigh af­ter try­ing to con­test Eric Bled­soe’s shot in

tran­si­tion at the 6:50 mark of the third. The 30-year-old Curry has been av­er­ag­ing 29.5 points, 6.1 as­sists and 5.0 re­bounds while shoot­ing 49.2 per cent from three-point range.
