"So, this doesn't look like it's going to be a long-term injury". "We'll just monitor his progress over the next several days".
The Warriors are already playing without veterans Draymond Green (toe sprain) and Shaun Livingston (foot soreness), both of whom have been ruled out of Saturday's game as well.
Steph suffered the injury in Thursday night's loss to the surprising Milwaukee Bucks, when he tried to thwart Eric Bledsoe movement towards the basket. The five-time All-Star is averaging 29.5 points, 5.0 rebounds and 6.1 assists through 12 games while shooting 51.5 percent from the field, 49.2 percent from beyond the arc and 92.3 percent from the free-throw line.
"He's a little bummed out but I think the MRI was basically good news", Kerr said.

Following Kerr's comments, the Warriors released a statement saying Curry has a mild to moderate groin strain.
As the Warriors await the results of Curry's MRI, teammate Kevin Durant didn't sound too concerned about Curry's setback.
"Sometimes you've got to get hit in the mouth in this league to remind you how hard it is to win a game", said Kerr.
No one on the Warriors was able to get it going against the Bucks. Milwaukee won by a final score of 134-111 and was clicking on all cylinders for 48 minutes.
