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

Stephen Curry will miss a few days with a groin strain, but his MRI was encouraging.

Curry underwent an MRI exam Friday but the Warriors will wait a few days to fully determine the severity of the injury.

"The MRI looked good in terms of not being too serious", Kerr told the media. "So, this doesn't look like it's going to be a long-term injury". "He's disappointed, but it could have been a lot worse".

The injury occurred with 6:50 left in the quarter as Curry tried to contest a move by Bucks guard Eric Bledsoe. Even the great ones have games where they can't hit a shot, and Thursday night just happened to be that type of game for the Warriors point guard.

The Warriors won't take a chance with him at this early stage of the season. However, Kerr did rule Curry out of Saturday's game against the Brooklyn Nets.

No one on the Warriors was able to get it going against the Bucks. Milwaukee won by a final score of 134-111 and was clicking on all cylinders for 48 minutes.

Quinn Cook will start in place of Curry Saturday night, while Shaun Livingston and Draymond Green are also out of the lineup. He was promoted from the G League as a two-way player and received a two-year contract ahead of the playoff run.

"He seemed good to me", Durant said after the game. With a big slate of games every Wednesday, we've asked a couple of our National Basketball Association experts - Doug Kezirian and Andre Snellings - to give their best bets for the night.
