Two-time MVP Stephen Curry has been ruled out of the Golden State Warriors' game with the New Orleans Pelicans due to a quad injury.

Curry, whose form has dipped over the past two games, will be sidelined along with All-Star Draymond Green for the Warriors, who are 29-8 and top of the Western Conference.

The Warriors guard bruised his left quad in Wednesday's loss to the Dallas Mavericks after colliding with Dorian Finney-Smith's knee in the third quarter.

Curry had said he was hopeful the quad injury would not keep him out or linger but the Warriors have since ruled him out for Thursday.

The 33-year-old has shot eight of 41 from the field in his past two games, which is his worst field goal percentage across a two-game span in his career. He has averaged only 11.5 points per game across the past two games.

Curry had started the season averaging 27.7 points per game across the first 33 games, with 43 percent field goal percentage and a 40 percent three-point attempts made percentage.
