Curry in­jury isn’t se­ri­ous

War­riors’ guard will be side­lined for a while with ad­duc­tor strain

San Francisco Chronicle - - SPORTING GREEN - By Con­nor Le­tourneau

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.”
