Curry out Saturday with groin strain
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.
Draymond Green also will sit Saturday, the second straight game he’ll be out with a sprained right foot and toe.
