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

Stephen Curry Warriors Bucks

Curry underwent an MRI Friday, with Kerr calling the results "encouraging".

There are games that beg to be forgotten immediately and such was the case Thursday night for the Warriors, who after being demolished by the Milwaukee Bucks had to clear plenty of rubble before walking out of Oracle Arena. The two-time NBA MVP strained the adductor muscle in his left leg and went to the locker room shortly thereafter.

The point guard was seen grabbing his inner thigh after trying to contest Eric Bledsoe's shot during the third quarter.

Curry sustained the injury and was forced to exit the game in third quarter of Thursday's loss to the Bucks after scoring only 10 points and missed all four of his attempts from 3-point range.

They've run into a bit of an issue lately, as Draymond Green and Shaun Livingston are expected to be out on Saturday too. Fortunately, he's played well in a variety of other ways, posting averages of 7.6 points, 7.9 assists and 7.2 rebounds per game.

Marcus Morris added 17 points and drained the tying 3-point basket with 1.1 seconds left in regulation as Boston recovered from a 22-point, third-quarter deficit. The Warriors are usually patient with player injuries and try not to rush anyone back to prevent re-injuring or overcompensation injuries.

Klay Thompson led the Warriors with 24 points and Kevin Durant had 17 points, nine assists and seven rebounds. The forward guest Giannis antetokounmpo scored 24 points, and the defender Malcolm Brogdon 20.

The Nets actually outscored the Warriors 60-33 on threes in the game, using them to slice a 19-point deficit to two before the Warriors held on in the end.

"They just played hungrier than us", Thompson said. The pair combines for 25.1 points, eight rebounds and 10 assists per game, and it easily ranks as one of the better, underrated backcourts. However, Thompson overcame the slump on October 29, breaking the National Basketball Association record for most 3-pointers in a game with 14. Head coach Steve Kerr mentioned in a press conference that Cousins will not be resigning because of salary cap concerns.
