OAKLAND — The Warriors currently have three injured All-Stars.
Warriors guard Stephen Curry will receive an MRI on Friday after missing the fourth quarter of a 134-111 loss to the Milwaukee Bucks on Thursday at Oracle Arena because of a left abductor strain. Warriors coach Steve Kerr said he did not have any other information on Curry. He also did not speak to reporters following the game so he could receive more treatment.

Nonetheless, Curry appeared relaxed as he sat by his stall when the Warriors opened the locker room to the media.
“He seemed good to me,” Warriors forward Kevin Durant said. “I have to talk to him tomorrow and see how he’s doing. But hopefully he’s doing well.”

Curry initially showed discomfort after he tried to contest a lob that Milwaukee Bucks guard Eric Bledsoe threw to forward Giannis Antetokounmpo with 6:49 left in the third quarter. He favored his groin area before eventually laboring through it for the remainder of the third quarter. Curry then went to the locker room before the fourth quarter began.

The Warriors also nursed absences to All-Star forward Draymond Green, who has been listed as day-to-day with a sprained right toe and foot. Warriors All-Star center DeMarcus Cousins has been rehabbing a left Achilles injury. And Warriors reserve Shaun Livingston missed his sixth consecutive game because of a sore right foot.
It is currently unclear if Curry will receive an MRI before or after the Warriors’ practice on Friday scheduled for 11 a.m.
