Steph Curry exits Warriors' game vs. Bucks with left adductor strain

Steph Curry exits Warriors' game vs. Bucks with left adductor strain

To add injury to insult Thursday night at Oracle Arena, Steph Curry left the Warriors-Bucks game with a left adductor strain.

The injury appeared to occur at the 6:49 mark in the third quarter. Curry was trying to stop a Bucks fastbreak and grabbed at his groin area.

Curry played three more minutes and checked out at the 3:41 mark in the third. He went to the locker room for evaluation.

At the beginning of the fourth quarter, the Warriors announced Curry would not return to the game.

Warriors coach Steve Kerr said after the game that Curry will have an MRI on Friday.

Curry finished the game with just 10 points on 5-of-14 shooting and 0 of 4 from 3-point range as the Warriors lost 134-111.

The last time we saw the Warriors end up in the win column, they were hosting the Chicago Bulls on Nov. 27 with injured star Klay Thompson joining the broadcast as a sideline reporter at Chase Center.

Friday night will see the Warriors once again take the court opposite Zach LaVine and the Bulls, but this time the teams will be at the United Center in Chicago.

In case you forgot, last year’s matchup between these teams in Chicago featured a pretty impressive, record-breaking performance for Klay, as he drilled 14 three-pointers in a blowout win.

While we obviously won’t see Thompson on the floor in tonight’s edition, D’Angelo Russell returned to the court on Wednesday night and will play against the Bulls.

What Warriors do with their two-way players when held out of practice

What Warriors do with their two-way players when held out of practice

Warriors guards Ky Bowman and Damion Lee are on two-way contracts. By rule, they are allowed to be with Golden State for a maximum of 45 days.

Only games and official practices count against the limit, as travel days are not included.

The Warriors have been so banged up this season the team has had to be strategic with both players in order to squeeze as many games as possible out of them. 

For instance, the Dubs didn't practice in Houston about a month ago to preserve a day. On Thursday, coach Steve Kerr revealed that Bowman simply did not participate with the squad.

"He can't take part in team practice activity. So he can be in the building but he can't be out on the floor watching," Kerr explained Thursday evening on 95.7 The Game. "So what we do is we will have him come to the gym either before or after the team practice -- and we're doing the same thing with Damion Lee -- with one of our developmental coaches and get an individual workout.

"But they can't do the team workout or it costs us one of those 45 days."

The rules are quite strict.

"They have to watch the film separately from the team," Kerr said. "That's why we have individual coaches and developmental coaches assigned to every player."

Bowman already has used up 28 days -- 23 games plus five practices.

Lee only has played in 11 games (plus one practice), as he hasn't taken the floor since sustaining a non-displaced fracture of the fourth metacarpal in his right hand on Nov. 11.
