Warriors star forced out
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.
