Stephen Curry will miss at least the next two games, Warriors head coach Steve Kerr announced on Monday following shoot around in Los Angeles.

The Warriors will be sans Curry (mild to moderate left groin strain) for the back-to-back that begins on Monday night when the club meets the Clippers at Staples Center.

Golden State then returns to the Bay to host the Atlanta Hawks on Tuesday night. The back-to-back reigning champs then return to the road, visiting the Rockets on Thursday night in Houston.

Draymond Green (right toe sprain) and Shaun Livingston (foot soreness) will both return against the Clippers. Green has been lobbying Kerr to get back on the floor for some time now, and dropped a hilariously candid story after shoot around, per ESPN’s Nick Friedell.

"I wanted to play in that game,” Green said of the game against the Bucks. “The fact of the matter is you get up for different games. You try to roll with the cliche saying 'every game matters,' it really don't. Let's just be honest."

“That's one of the games, TNT Thursday night, you're playing against one of the best teams in the East," Green continued. "One of the best young talents we got in this league. Those are the games you want to play in."
