OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) — Golden State Warriors point guard Stephen Curry says he will play limited minutes for the foreseeable future because of a strained right quad.

Curry said before the Warriors hosted the Suns on Sunday night that an MRI on his quad revealed the strain. He says he injured his quad during Golden State's win at Boston on Wednesday and began to feel pain again during Friday's win over Atlanta.

Warriors coach Mark Jackson said there's no set limit on the All-Star point guard's minutes. Both said they will communicate with each other during games if Curry's muscle fatigues.

Curry says he has not dealt with a quad injury before but believes he can play through the pain while the muscle hustles without doing further damage.
