Golden State Warriors are likely to be without star men Stephen Curry until at least the end of the month due to a groin problem.
The Warriors head to Houston Rockets on Thursday night although Curry will miss out. GSW are 2.15 to claim the victory, while Houston can be backed at 1.75.
Curry sustained the injury in the defeat to Milwaukee Bucks earlier this month and has now missed three games.
The two-time NBA MVP faces at least another 10 days on the sidelines and could be absent until the end of the month, meaning he would be absent for a further eight games.
“Warriors guard Stephen Curry, who has missed the team’s last three games after suffering a mild to moderate strained left groin […] continues to be monitored and evaluated by the team’s training and medical staff, as indicated initially last week,” the Warriors said in a statement.
“He will travel on the team’s upcoming three-game road trip to Texas – but will not play – and will be re-evaluated again in 10 days.”
Curry will definitely miss the next five games, which include tough meetings with San Antonio Spurs, Oklahoma City Thunder and Portland Trail Blazers.
Golden State are 1.75 with a +3.5 handicap at Houston on Thursday, while the Warriors are 2.05 to score over 110.5 points at the Toyota Center.
