Else­where in the NBA — Stephen Curry has a mild to mod­er­ate left groin strain and will miss Golden State’s home game tonight against Brook­lyn in Oak­land, Calif.

Curry un­der­went an MRI exam yes­ter­day 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.

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 . ...

Nuggets for­ward Will Bar­ton is start­ing to take a few shots as he re­cov­ers from surgery to fix core and hip mus­cle in­juries. There is no timetable for his re­turn. Bar­ton said yes­ter­day he’s “get­ting stronger ev­ery day.”

The 27-year-old Bar­ton was carted off the floor on Oct. 20 against Phoenix af­ter he said he felt some­thing pop when he took off for the bas­ket . ...

The Cleve­land Cava­liers, who al­ready have the worst record in the NBA at 1-10, will be with­out yet an­other starter tonight in Chicago af­ter for­ward Cedi Os­man was ruled out with back spasms.

He’s the lat­est Cavs player to join an in­jury list that in­cludes All-Star for­ward Kevin Love, point guard Ge­orge

Hill and Sam Dekker, who be­gan the sea­son as a re­serve but moved into the start­ing lineup be­cause of all the in­juries.
