The Warriors were defeated 134-111 by the Milwuakee Bucks on Thursday night.
However, more troubling news for the Warriors was to come as Curry limped off with injury.
The leading points scorer in the league suffered a thigh problem and was forced out of the game.
He is expected to miss multiple games due to his rehab, though no confirmation has been made yet.
However, NBA expert Tas Melas still believes Curry is the frontrunner for the MVP award, which will be finalised at the end of the regular season.
If he were to win it, he would be doing so for the third time.
The point guard was the back-to-back MVP in 2015 and 2016.
“Curry had his worst game and the warriors lost, how is he not the leader for MVP?” Melas said on The Starters podcast.
“There are so many ways to look at it.
“I just think the way Curry has started the season, how good he’s been, he’s still number one for me.
“It’s up for grabs.”
However, Melas declared that it is still all to play for, with several months remaining in the regular season.
“Early in the season it changes every week as you get players having good weeks,” he said.
“It seems that if you have a good week you’re leading in the club house.”
Curry will sit out the Warriors game with the Brooklyn Nets on Saturday night, but MRI results were encouraging, according to head coach Steve Kerr.
