Stephen Curry's Groin Strain Not Considered Serious

Stephen Curry's Groin Strain Not Considered Serious

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. Steve Kerr said in the aftermath of the game that Curry was going to get an MRI on Friday, and while meeting with the media, the Dubs coach gave a bit of news that will lead to Golden State fans breathing a sigh of relief.

We're more focused here on the day-to-day variance that can help you win a few bucks. He's still sore, and it's a strained groin, basically, is the injury. So it will be kind of a day-to-day thing, but, obviously, we won't do anything insane.

Quinn Cook will start in Curry's place against the Nets. Obviously, we won't do anything insane. "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", Kerr said.

Javier Baez, Jose Abreu Win Silver Slugger Awards
The Silver Slugger was first awarded in 1980, and this year it brought an unexpected twist that we've never seen before. On Thursday, it was announced that Martinez won the American League Silver Slugger Awards at both DH and the outfield .

Kerr said that Green's absence and Curry's third-quarter exit weren't the Warriors' biggest problem.

The Warriors have games against the Los Angeles Clippers on Monday and Atlanta Hawks on Tuesday. The five-time All-Star is averaging 29.5 points, 5.0 rebounds and 6.1 assists through 12 games while shooting 51.5 percent from the field, 49.2 percent from beyond the arc and 92.3 percent from the free-throw line.

The superstar guard scored 10 points before he departed - his second straight game with fewer than 20.
