Stephen Curry won't play against the Toronto Raptors on Thursday.

Golden State Warriors head coach Steve Kerr told the media on Wednesday that the two-time MVP was "dying" to play in Toronto, but the team is being "extra cautious" and has decided to keep him sidelined for a couple more days.

Curry is expected to make his return on Saturday, when the Warriors take on the Detroit Pistons.

Curry got off to a blazing start this season, helping the Warriors win 10 of their first 11 games with averages of 29.5 points, 6.1 assists and 5.0 rebounds per contest. He suffered a groin injury against the Milwaukee Bucks on Nov. 10 and has been sidelined since.

The Warriors have struggled at times in Curry's absence, going .500. They have, however, won their last three games led by Kevin Durant and Klay Thompson.

The Warriors and Raptors will meet for the second and final time this season on Dec. 12.
