Golden State's Curry out for 2nd straight game

HOUSTON (AP) Golden State's Stephen Curry is out for the second straight game Thursday night against Houston with a bruised lower left leg.

Curry was injured Monday night against Sacramento and sat out Wednesday night at Dallas when the Warriors lost for just the second time this season, 114-91 to the Mavericks.

Interim coach Luke Walton said Curry was feeling better Thursday, but that he was not ready to play. Before he sat out Wednesday, last season's MVP hadn't missed a game since March 13.

The Warriors are off Friday before hosting Denver on Saturday.
