Golden State Warriors star Stephen Curry got an MRI on his lower left leg injury and won’t play against the Dallas Mavericks on Wednesday night. The good news is the MRI came back clean, as Curry officially has a “bruised left lower leg” and is day-to-day.
This comes after Warriors interim head coach Luke Walton said Tuesday there was a good chance Curry wouldn’t play against the Mavericks or Houston Rockets on Thursday, according to Diamond Leung of the San Jose Mercury News.
The reigning MVP suffered the injury in a win over the Sacramento Kings on Monday, a game in which he recorded his first triple-double of the season. He dealt with a strained right calf last week.
Shaun Livingston is expected to get the start with Curry out of the lineup. Harrison Barnes, Festus Ezeli and Leandro Barbosa are all out for Wednesday’s game, so the remaining Warriors will have to step up in a big way.
