Warriors' Steph Curry says injured groin ‘getting stronger by the day'


Steph Curry met with the media Saturday for the first time since he suffered a groin injury in a Nov. 8 loss to the Milwaukee Bucks, and he provided an update on his ongoing rehabilition process.

The Warriors' star guard insisted that he's making good progress and continues to get stronger by the day. He and Golden State's training staff currently are focused on increasing his range of motion and limiting pain.

An injury designation is nothing new to Curry, as he has been plagued by ankle injuries throughout his accomplished career. This being a groin ailment, however, means Curry is learning as he goes.

"I'm learning about this one," Curry told the media in Dallas. "I can tell you everything you want to know about ankles, but this is obviously a new one for me, so we're trying to make sure I stay cautious, but we know that we're moving in the right direction. So I don't know how long it'll be, but that's all I can pretty much ask for right now."

On Wednesday, the Warriors issued an update on Curry in which it was announced he would be re-evaluated again in 10 days. It isn't certain that Curry will be ready for game action at the conclusion of that 10-day period, but he is optimistic he will be, or at least shortly thereafter.

"I think at that point I should be able to kinda say when I'll be able to play," said Curry. "Hopefully it's that next day or next game or two."

The Warriors have gone 2-2 while Curry has been sidelined entering Saturday's game against the Mavericks.
