Golden State Warriors head coach Steve Kerr has revealed that Steph Curry's injury isn't that serious. However, the point guard will not be returning to the court just yet.
Curry gave Dubs fans quite the scare on Thursday night after a reported adductor injury forced him to exit the third quarter of their loss to the Milwaukee Bucks. And it was later announced that he wouldn't be returning to the game.
The player has since undergone an MRI, which has revealed a groin strain. And, while the problem is relatively benign, he has been ruled out of Saturday's game against the Brooklyn Nets.
"The MRI looked good in terms of not being too serious but he's not going to play tomorrow," Kerr said on Friday (h/t Anthony Slater of The Athletic).
"It’s something that we’re going to evaluate over the next few days. He’s still sore, it’s a strained groin, basically. The MRI was encouraging, it’s going to be kind of a day-to-day thing. Obviously, we’re not going to do anything crazy. He’s going to be out until he’s healthy and ready to go."
Curry has made a great start to the season - an important one for the Warriors, who are looking to win a third straight title - playing some of the best basketball of his career. The guard is currently averaging 29.5 points, 6.1 assists and 5.0 rebounds per contest while hitting 49.2 percent of his shots from beyond the arc. He also posted a 51-point game against the Washington Wizards last month.

The sharpshooter will hope to be playing again very soon but, from all indications, Kerr isn't keen on rushing him back.
Curry missed 11 games last term after injuring an ankle in December. He also sustained a grade 2 MCL sprain that saw him miss the end of the regular season and kept him out until Game 2 of the Western Conference semis against the New Orleans Pelicans.
