Warriors’ Curry not hurt in multicar crash in Calif.

Golden State Warriors guard Stephen Curry was not injured when he was involved in a three-car crash on a California highway Friday morning.

Authorities say Curry was driving a black Porsche when the driver of a Lexus lost control and struck his car.

Curry stopped in the center median and as he waited for officers to arrive, another sedan lost control and rear-ended his Porsche about 10 minutes later, according to California Highway Patrol Officer Herman Baza.

Baza said no one was injured or arrested and that rain was a factor in the crash.

After the crash, Curry made it to the Warriors’ practice facility and the team said he was “fine.”

“I haven’t seen him. I heard he’s all right, though, hopefully,” Warriors teammate Klay Thompson said after Friday’s shootaround.

Curry later tweeted his thanks.

Curry has been out for the Warriors since Nov. 8 as he continues to recover from a strained left groin. He will not play in Friday night’s game against the Portland Trail Blazers due to the injury and also will miss Saturday’s game against the Sacramento Kings. Curry has been getting more individual work in during the past wee, and the organization is hopeful he will be back on the floor in the near future.

Draymond Green (toe) and Alfonzo McKinnie (foot) also remain out for Friday’s game.

The Warriors enter Friday’s game having lost four straight — the first time that has occurred in the Steve Kerr era. The group remains confident that better times are ahead soon, especially once Curry and Green come back.

“Obviously every loss hurts,” Thompson said. “But realize we have enough in here to win. We’ve done it in the past, previous seasons, last year, the year before when key guys went out, so just draw back on times when we were successful when we had a depleted roster and right now we obviously are short-handed but we’re not going to make excuses for these upcoming games. We still have plenty of talent to reel off some wins and we will, we just got to stay the course. Obviously it’s been a hard part of the schedule with all the opponents we’re facing, playoff teams. So it hasn’t been easy, but we’re going to be better for it.”
