Golden State Warriors guard Stephen Curry will have an MRI on Monday after leaving game 4 against the Houston Rockets with a right knee strain, according to multiple reports. 

Curry injured his right knee by sliding awkwardly on a wet spot. The Warriors guard was defending Rockets forward Trevor Ariza for the final play of the first half.

Curry immediately grabbed his knee, got up and jogged with a limp into the locker room. The reigning MVP came out after halftime, but he sat on the bench for warmups.

Eventually, Curry returned to the locker room while his team cruised to a 121-94 victory over the Rockets. Before leaving the game, Curry had six points on 2of-9 shooting and 1-of-7 from the 3-point line. 

Game four was Curry’s return after missing the last two games with a sprained right ankle.

The Warriors head home for Game five with a 3-1 series lead. Veteran guard Shaun Livingston will continue filling in for Curry in the starting lineup, should Curry miss anymore time.
