Warriors star Steph Curry scored 27 of his 38 points in the first half, as the Warriors dropped another road game, this time a 125-119 count to the Pacers on Wednesday.Steph Curry Jalen Smith

Worse, Curry was forced to exit with 2:04 remaining in the third quarter with a left shoulder injury.

“He’s going to get an MRI (on Thursday),” Warriors coach Steve Kerr told reporters of Curry. “The trainers told me he was out midway through the fourth quarter. I only spoke to him briefly after the game, so I haven’t had a chance to talk with him yet.”

Curry suffered the injury when Pacers big man Jalen Smith ran into his arm. Curry then bent over in obvious pain, clutching at the shoulder. He did not speak to the media after the game.

It’s always a bad thing when Curry isn’t available, but the Warriors (14-15) are in the midst of a six-game swing. The defending champions are now just 2-13 on the road, including 0-6 on the road against the Eastern Conference.

Curry, 34, is averaging 29.6 points, 6.8 assists, 6.6 rebounds and shooting 50 percent from the field, including 43 percent on 3-pointers, in 25 games.

We will have updates on Curry as the news becomes available.
