Golden State Warriors All-Star guard Steph Curry will miss at least five games with a left groin injury suffered in last week’s loss to the Milwaukee Bucks, the team announced Tuesday.
Curry underwent an MRI and “continues to be monitored and evaluated by the team’s training and medical staff,” the Warriors said in a news release. He will be re-evaluated in 10 days.
Warriors coach Steve Kerr referred to Curry’s MRI as “encouraging,” but said the team will be “extra cautious.”
Playing status is still unknown, but Steph Curry is making the Texas trip with the Warriors. That’s not insignificant, even if he can’t play. His locker room presence is needed at this tenuous time. Curry wasn’t in Los Angeles when this went down.

Curry, 30, won’t play but will travel with the Warriors for an upcoming Texas trip to Houston, San Antonio and Dallas. He will also miss home games against the Oklahoma City Thunder and Portland Trail Blazers before being re-evaluated next week.
He is averaging 29.5 points, 6.1 assists and 5.0 rebounds on the season.
