Golden State Warriors point guard Stephen Curry has been ruled out of Saturday’s game against the Brooklyn Nets because of an abductor strain, coach Steve Kerr told reporters on Friday.

Curry underwent an MRI exam earlier in the day, and Kerr found the results “encouraging,” but he said Curry was disappointed.

However, Curry is expected to miss only a few days and avoided a long-term setback, according to Kerr.

The Warriors have games against the Los Angeles Clippers on Monday and Atlanta Hawks on Tuesday.

Curry suffered the injury in the third quarter of Thursday’s 134-111 loss to the Milwaukee Bucks. He is averaging 29.5 points in 12 games.

Quinn Cook will start in Curry’s place against the Nets.

Also, power forward Draymond Green (foot) will miss his second straight game and point guard Shaun Livingston (foot) will sit out his seventh in a row.
