Head coach Steve Kerr was optimistic after the game.
"I definitely do not have an ominous feeling," he told reporters. "I feel like I'm disappointed for Steph mostly tonight, we'll see how long he has to be out, but we'll have guys coming back in the next couple weeks and we've got enough and we can push forward."
