Steph Curry 'not nervous' after suffering groin injury in Warriors' loss

If this was another ankle injury, Steph Curry would be holding his breath. He's been there before, and he knows his body doesn't react well to turning his ankle the wrong way. 

Curry left the Warriors' blowout loss to the Bucks on Thursday night with an adductor strain. After coming up short in the third quarter and being forced to head to the locker room, Curry doesn't seem too worried. 

This is Curry's first groin injury, and he's "not nervous," as he told Marc Spears of The Undefeated after the loss.

On his nervousness for the future, Curry had three words for Spears. 

Curry had his worst statistical game of the season before the injury, scoring a season-low 10 points and missing all four of his 3-point attempts. It was the first time this season that he hadn't scored from beyond the arc. 

Curry is averaging 29.5 points and 6.1 assists through 12 games while shooting 49.2 percent from deep.

Steve Kerr reveals best remedy for dealing with Warriors related stress

Programming note: Watch Wednesday night's Warriors-Thunder game streaming live at 7:30 p.m. PT on the MyTeams app.

Breaking news -- last week was pretty rough for the Golden State Warriors.

It was exhausting for Steve Kerr, who needed to get out of Oracle Arena ASAP last Tuesday night after the Warriors beat the Hawks:

Golden State went 0-3 on its Texas road trip and the team was still dealing with the aftermath of the Kevin Durant-Draymond Green drama.

So what does the Warriors' head coach do when going through tumultuous times?

"I'm reading a really good book about Bill Belichick right now. I actually started it on the road trip and I find the best way to deal with any kind of stress in my job is to get into a good book," Kerr said on KNBR 680 on Tuesday evening. "Or just watch the Chiefs and the Rams (laughter)."

It was a rather epic Monday Night Football game -- a great way to close out a home off-day for Kerr. Once he finishes the book on Belichick, he may turn to Andre Iguodala for some new material.

"Andre's really got a lot of interesting reading suggestions," Kerr added. "So sometimes we share books or articles or something."

Back in October 2017, the 2015 Finals MVP said the following to Mark Medina of the Bay Area News Group:

"A lot that goes on that can weigh on your brain and it can shorten guys' careers. So you gotta stay sharp. That's the only secret I'll give you -- I try to read a whole lot of books.

"You know what's interesting -- I usually have no idea the title of the book I'm reading. I never know the author's name for some reason."

Kevin Durant reacts to $25,000 fine, explains frustration with fans

In the midst of drama with Warriors teammate Draymond Green and a shooting slump that hasn't helped the team's woes, Kevin Durant's bank account took a hit Tuesday. 

Durant was fined $25,000 by the NBA for telling a Mavericks fan to "watch the f****** game and shut the f*** up" in Dallas during the Warriors' loss Saturday night. And now we know when Durant found out about the fine. 

While taping a Yahoo Sports podcast with NBA Insider Chris Haynes, the reporter broke the news live to Durant. 

"I knew I was gonna get fined," Durant said.

He then went on to explain what made him lash out at the fan. 

"More fans should understand what that means," Durant said. "Grown men can't come to a game and heckle grown men. That's corny, that's weak. You're comin' to a game to heckle another grown man. 'You're soft. You're weak. Draymond this. Draymond that. You're a b****.' 

"You're goin' to sleep as a grown man and doin' that to another person." 

Durant and the Warriors have lost four out of their last five games. Their matchup with Russell Westbrook and the Thunder couldn't come at a better time.
