In brief: Depends
The answer really depend on the what the exact diagnosis is.
If the groin injury is related to damage to the adductor muscle(s) from a typical groin strain, there is no problem with reproduction.

In brief: Depends
Depends on the severity of injury if it is a male - blow to the testicles, which may occur in sport or during a fight, can cause swelling of the testicles, or bleeding in or around them. This probably causes the blood supply to the testicles to fail, resulting in permanent damage to the sperm production mechanism. If it is a female may cause discomfort but no fertility issues.
