Steph Curry out at least 10 more days for Warriors with groin injury

Programming note: Watch Thursday night's Warriors-Rockets game streaming live at 5 p.m. PT on the MyTeams app.

Steph Curry is Houston bound.

The two-time NBA MVP is traveling with the Warriors to Texas for the three-game road trip, but he will not play in any of the contests, the team announced Wednesday.

The Warriors will face the Rockets on Thursday, the Mavericks on Saturday and the Spurs on Sunday.

Curry will be re-evaluated in 10 days, which means he's scheduled to also miss next week's games against the Thunder (Wednesday) and the Trail Blazers (Friday). Golden State will host the Kings next Saturday, which is 10 days from now.

The three-time NBA champion has missed the Warriors' last three games -- wins over the Nets and Hawks, and a loss to the Clippers. He is averaging 29.5 points, 6.1 assists and 5.0 rebounds this season, while shooting 51.5 percent from the field and over 49 percent from 3-point range.

Willie Cauley-Stein has need for speed after 'Top Gun' trailer release

Warriors center Willie Cauley-Stein wants to take the highway to the danger zone on his way to Chase Center next season. 

Golden State's new big man tweeted a clip from the "Top Gun: Maverick" trailer Thursday afternoon, and the 25-year-old definitely has the need ... the need for speed. 

That'd be one way to take Warriors fans' breath away.

Cauley-Stein told the Warriors he would be their wingman big man any day earlier this summer, signing a one-year deal worth a little more than the veteran's minimum because he couldn't turn down the chance to play with Steph Curry and Co. He averaged 11.9 points and 8.4 rebounds per game with the Kings last season, but his ego arguably wrote a check his play couldn't cash after telling reporters last September that he was "ready to get paid."

Still, the No. 6 pick in the 2015 NBA Draft has plenty of potential, and will have plenty of motivation next season on a prove-it deal. If it is a strong enough combination to bring out the best in Cauley-Stein, he could find that loving feeling on the free-agent market next summer.

Some NBA players can say they have dunked on Steph Curry, but can they say they dunked the Warriors star?

Curry and his wife Ayesha launched their "Eat. Learn. Play. Foundation" at a kickoff event in Oakland on Thursday, hosting nearly 1,000 kids for a day of activities. One of those activities was a dunk tank, and the two Currys -- one of whom forms one half of the Splash Brothers -- got very wet.  

The foundation aims to bring out the best in children "By fighting to end childhood hunger, ensuring access to education and enabling active lifestyles," according to its mission statement.

"[The kids are] having fun today, but obviously the back-end -- we're trying to create programs and do stuff that helps the entire youth in Oakland and the Bay Area," Steph said Thursday. "So, you gotta have energy for that."

Steph spent the first entirety of his first decade in the NBA in Oakland, but he and the Warriors will move to San Francisco's Chase Center next season. Despite the pending move, Ayesha said staying active in community efforts in The Town is necessary for the family.

"We hope to always be involved in this community," she said. "It's important to us." 

That community is better for their endeavors, and the Currys were wetter for theirs Thursday.
