Warriors’ Stephen Curry day-to-day with strained groin after MRI comes back clean

Stephen Curry, Warriors

In their 134-111 loss to the Milwaukee Bucks, Golden State Warriors guard Stephen Curry exited the game during the third quarter after suffering a groin injury. Prior to the injury, Curry scored just 10 points and missed all four of his attempts from 3.

Curry got an MRI and results came back negative. He is currently listed as day-to-day and will miss their game against the Brooklyn Nets on Saturday. In his absence, Quinn Cook will be starting at point guard.

This is somewhat of a setback for Stephen Curry as he has been playing so well to start the season. He is currently averaging 29.0 points, 5.0 rebounds and 6.1 assists per game and is one of the early leaders in the MVP race. Curry has previously said that he had his best summer yet, which is a reason why he has been playing so well.

This is Curry’s first injury since missing significant stretches of last season due to injuries. Curry dealt with a tweaked ankle that forced him to miss 11 games in December. He also suffered a Grade 2 MCL sprain late in the regular season that kept him out until Game 2 of the Western Conference Semifinals against the New Orleans Pelicans.

Upon returning from that injury, Curry averaged 25.5 points and shot 39.5 percent from beyond the arc throughout Golden State’s NBA title run.

The Warriors will definitely not rush Stephen Curry back to play as they have more than enough talent to hold the fort for him. They will need him to be at his absolute best in June when they go for their third straight title.
