Warriors star Curry ‘day-to-day’ with groin strain

Steph Curry to miss time after 'encouraging' MRI

Curry left Thursday night's game against the Milwaukee Bucks after straining the adductor muscle in his left leg.

Coach Steve Kerr said Curry is set to have an MRI exam on Friday, November 9 (Saturday, November 10, Manila time) after his Warriors lost the two-time MVP to a left adductor strain during the 3rd quarter of their 23-point loss to the Milwaukee Bucks, 134-111, in National Basketball Association action Thursday.

"The MRI was encouraging, so it'll be kind of a day-to-day thing". Still, there's no word on when we'll see him back on the floor, which includes ruling Curry out for Saturday's game against the Nets. He stayed in for a few more moments before heading to the locker room and did not return. Warriors' fans can breathe a collective sigh of relief in knowing the injury is non-serious.

The morning after Stephen Curry exited early from the Warriors' 134-111 loss to the Bucks, head coach Steve Kerr addressed the latest on the sidelined superstar.

"[Curry's] doing fine", Kerr said.

"He's a little bummed out but I think the MRI was basically good news", Kerr said of Curry's state of mind. "He's disappointed, but it could have been a lot worse".

Kerr has had the injury several times himself, and says the biggest thing to overcome is lateral movement. The movement with the quad is fine.

The Warriors are already playing without veterans Draymond Green (toe sprain) and Shaun Livingston (foot soreness), both of whom have been ruled out of Saturday's game as well.

Sporting five players who scored in double figures, it was a total team effort that led to the Bucks dispatching the Warriors easily on the night, though both Giannis Antetokounmpo and Eric Bledsoe stole the show at various points due to their standout play, respectively.
