Stephen Curry won't suit up Monday against the Orlando Magic, as the Golden State Warriors guard has been officially ruled out due to a right thigh contusion, coach Steve Kerr said, according to ESPN's Chris Haynes.

Curry, who had been ruled questionable earlier in the day, will be replaced in the starting lineup by Shaun Livingston, though forward Kevin Durant will also assume some ball-handling duties, Kerr told Mark Medina of The Mercury News.

The 29-year-old Curry is averaging 25.2 points, 6.7 assists, and 4.7 rebounds in 13 games this season.
