Stephen Curry, Draymond Green out vs. Nets

Steph Curry to miss time after 'encouraging' MRI

The Warriors announced Friday that Stephen Curry has a mild to moderate left groin strain. Coach Steve Kerr said it doesn't appear to be significant.

Curry underwent an MRI exam Friday but the Warriors will wait a few days to fully determine the severity of the injury. He's still sore, and it's a strained groin, basically, is the injury.

According to Kerr, the two-time league MVP had an "encouraging" MRI. Obviously, we won't do anything insane.

"When you come out with a sort of mindless intent, and you're fouling and not executing, just taking quick shots against a really good team - a team that's hungry and on the rise - you're not going to fare very well", he said.

Quinn Cook, who filled in last season when Curry was hurt for a long stretch, will start against the Nets.

Steph suffered the injury in Thursday night's loss to the surprising Milwaukee Bucks, when he tried to thwart Eric Bledsoe movement towards the basket.

The Warriors have games against the Los Angeles Clippers on Monday and Atlanta Hawks on Tuesday. "So, he's disappointed but it could have been a lot worse". 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.

Also, power forward Draymond Green (foot) will miss his second straight game and point guard Shaun Livingston (foot) will sit out his seventh in a row.

"He's a little bummed out", Kerr said.
