(OAKLAND, Calif.) — Golden State Warriors’ Stephen Curry will undergo an MRI Friday to evaluate the severity of an injury he sustained during Thursday night’s game against the Milwaukee Bucks.
The team’s star guard didn’t return to the game in the third quarter due to an adductor strain in his left leg, ESPN reports. Curry briefly tried to stay in the game after he injured himself while challenging a move by Bucks guard Eric Bledsoe. But the injury to his leg proved to be too much for Curry, and forced him to leave the game without returning.
Curry’s teammates and coach don’t seem to be too worried about the seriousness of his injury. Warriors coach Steve Kerr downplayed his concern to ESPN, despite having little experience with the type of injury Curry suffered.
“I’m not nervous. I have nothing to go off of. If this was an ankle, I could tell you four days, 12 days,” Curry said. “But I will see tomorrow. …I’ve honestly never done this before, so I have nothing to go off of.”
Teammate Kevin Durante said Curry “seemed good to me,” but added that he’d have to talk to Curry Friday as they await the MRI results.
“I have to talk to him [Friday] to see how he’s doing, but hopefully he’s doing well,” Durante told ESPN.
The Milwaukee Bucks defeated the Golden State Warriors Thursday night 134-111.
