The Golden State Warriors have announced just how severe the injury which Stephen Curry suffered during the second half of their loss to the Milwaukee Bucks on Thursday night is.
According to Anthony Slater of The Athletic, Warriors head coach Steve Kerr revealed following the team’s practice session on Friday that Curry’s MRI results were encouraging but the All-Star point guard will miss some time as a result of the strained groin he suffered in the loss.
The injury appeared to occur around the 6:50 mark of the third quarter while Curry was trying to stop a Bucks’ break, as the two-time NBA MVP could be seen grabbing at his groin area after the play. Curry stayed in the game for a couple more minutes before eventually exiting for good at the 3:41 mark in the third quarter. At the beginning of the fourth quarter, the Warriors made it official and announced that Curry would not return to the game.
Curry has dealt with various injury issues throughout the course of his career, but both he and the Warriors are obviously hoping that this latest one isn’t anything serious. On the season, Curry is averaging 31.3 points, 6.1 assists, 5.4 rebounds, and 1.1 steals per game while shooting over 50% both from the field and from long range.
