The morning after Stephen Curry exited early from the Warriors’ 134-111 loss to the Bucks, head coach Steve Kerr addressed the latest on the sidelined superstar.

Curry is officially dealing with a mild to moderate groin strain that will keep him shelved for Saturday night’s meeting with Brooklyn at Oracle Arena.

Here’s the transcript of Kerr’s comments on Curry:

“The MRI looked good in terms of not being too serious, but he’s not going to play tomorrow. It’s kind of a — something that we’re going to evaluate over the next few days. He’s still sore…”

“It’s a strained groin, basically, is the injury, but the MRI was encouraging. So it will be kind of a day-to-day thing, but, obviously, we won’t do anything crazy. He’s going to be out until he’s healthy and ready to go.”

Kerr also told reporters at the Rakuten Performance Center in Downtown Oakland that the guard is in positive spirits, considering the circumstances.

“He’s a little bummed out but I think the MRI was basically good news,” Kerr said. “So, this doesn’t look like it’s going to be a long-term injury. So, he’s disappointed but it could have been a lot worse."
