OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) — Stephen Curry won’t play during Golden State’s three-game Texas road trip as he recovers from a left groin strain, though he is traveling with the Warriors.

The team traveled Wednesday (Thursday, PHL time) to Houston, where the two-time defending NBA champions will play Thursday night (Friday, PHL time). They have games Saturday at Dallas and Sunday at San Antonio (Sunday and Monday, PHL time).

Curry was injured during a Nov. 8 (Nov. 9, PHL time) game against the Milwaukee Bucks and has been sidelined the past three games. He is scheduled to be re-evaluated in 10 days. The team says he continues to be monitored by the medical staff as he rehabs from his latest injury.

The two-time MVP played in only 51 regular-season games last season because of a left knee injury and a sprained right ankle. He returned from the knee injury for Game 2 of the Western Conference semifinals after sitting out the first round of the playoffs.

Curry, 30, is averaging 29.5 points, 6.1 assists and 5.0 rebounds while shooting 49.2 percent from 3-point range.
