Stephen Curry will be out for at least a little bit longer.
The 30-year-old star is set to have his injured groin re-evaluated this weekend. But, Golden State coach Steve Kerr told reporters the earliest Curry will be back on the floor is Monday against the Magic.
“He’s not playing Saturday (against the Kings),” Steve Kerr said Tuesday (via The Mercury News).
Kerr also said he wanted Curry to have more practice time before returning.
Curry, however, participated in post-practice shooting drills Tuesday and also worked out with former Suns star Steve Nash, who currently serves as a Warriors consultant.

Curry, the two-time MVP, has averaged 29.5 points and 6.1 assists this season. He has been out since injuring his groin in a Nov. 8 matchup with the Bucks.
The Warriors, who hold a 12-6 record after dropping their last three games, will host the Thunder on Wednesday and the Trail Blazers on Friday.
