Andre Iguodala finished with two points and two assists in 23 minutes on Sunday, without any rebounds, steals or blocks.
Even if Iguodala begins the season as a reserve, joining Leandro Barbosa in the second-unit backcourt, he could replace Harrison Barnes at SF the moment play-maker Shaun Livingston (toe) returns. Given Iguodala's uncertain role and his increasingly limited upside, fantasy owners should avoid him until the later rounds. Oct 19 - 10:57 PM

Andre Iguodala started instead of Harrison Barnes on Friday, logging 12 minutes with five points, two steals, one three and one assist.

It was erroneously reported that Barnes would be starting and a number of quotes from Steve Kerr got jumbled up, but the takeaway is still that Kerr might decide to use Iguodala off the bench at least until Shaun Livingston returns. It's not really going to matter for either player and neither player profiles as a guy to target on draft day.

Coach Steve Kerr said Andre Iguodala will come off the bench on Thursday and Harrison Barnes will start.

Kerr said Iguodala has been "brilliant" in the second unit and it makes sense to have him handle the ball. He should still be able to add multiple-category stat lines off the bench, but he's more of an asset in reality than in fantasy. Fantasy owners might want to shoot for a higher upside.

Steve Kerr said that Andre Iguodala was "brilliant" in a bench role on Sunday, as he posted four points and eight assists with zero turnovers in 21 minutes.

"I don't know that [coming off the bench] is the route we're going to go, but he solidified that unit," Kerr said. Iguodala seems willing to be a reserve, at least until Shaun Livingston's return, saying, "It's just playing ball, you know? You try not to make a big deal out of it." He just cracked the top-100 in 8-cat leagues last season, playing 32 minutes per game, and his fantasy outlook hasn't improved with Harrison Barnes and Draymond Green both scrapping for more playing time.

Steve Kerr brought Andre Iguodala off the bench on Sunday, using him and Leandro Barbosa as the primary ball-handlers for the Warriors' second unit.

While wearing a mask to protect his broken nose, Iguodala scored four points and dished out eight assists with zero turnovers in 21 minutes of action. It looks like he'll play with the second unit as a de facto PG to begin the season, at least until Shaun Livingston (toe surgery) returns to stabilize the bench's playmaking. The prospect of a reserve role does Iggy's season outlook no favors, but he's still a viable target after the middle rounds.

Andre Iguodala will wear a face mask while he plays through a broken nose.

That's probably not going to help his already disastrous free throw shooting, but at least he can play through it. Iguodala is not the fantasy option he used to be, but is still worth owning as he's slated to start for the Warriors.

Andre Iguodala (broken nose) did not practice on Friday.

The team has already said that Iguodala will be able to play through the injury, and that is shouldn't affect his playing time. He'll likely start off the season as a starter, but after averaging just 9.3 points, 4.7 rebounds, and 4.2 assists through 32 minutes of action with the Dubs last season, he's not a very enticing fantasy option.

Andre Iguodala broke his nose against the Lakers on Thursday night.

The team said he'll be able to play through it, and it shouldn't affect his playing time. Iguodala played just 16 minutes and had seven points, three rebounds, two assists, one block and one 3-pointer. This injury shouldn't cause him to slide in drafts, but he wasn't one of our targets anyway.
Oct 10 - 9:14 AM

Warriors coach Steve Kerr views Andre Iguodala as a "point-forward" and he's imagined sets with Iguodala and Leandro Barbosa on the court together.

Iguodala handling the ball is nothing new, but this suggests that he may spend significant time with the Warriors' second unit. Kerr hasn't defined his player's roles this early in training camp, and Iguodala's play-making skills could be critical since the Warriors' wing rotation already includes Klay Thompson, Draymond Green, Harrison Barnes and Brandon Rush.

Andre Iguodala said at media day that he's 100 percent healthy after undergoing stem cell PRP treatment on his right knee.

"It was nothing too invasive, but I was really able to take some time off," said Iguodala, who has been playing some five-on-five recently. "My rehab team was amazing. They really got me back to where I wanted to be, maybe even a little better." We're taking him off the injury report, but there is still a concern he's going to lose minutes to Harrison Barnes this season, and could eventually even lose his starting job.

Andre Iguodala divulged on media day that he had stem cell PRP injection to his knee this offseason and he's felt strong during pickup games this month.

That's the same procedure that Kobe Bryant has done, and knee tendentious did cause Andre to miss six games for the Warriors last season, so hopefully this can help alleviate the problem. Iguodala averaged 9.3 points, 4.7 rebounds, 4.2 assists, and 1.5 steals during his first season with the Dubs, and it'll be interesting to see if his scoring numbers can increase under new coach Steve Kerr. Kerr has hinted that Iguodala could head to the bench and play a sixth man role for the Warriors, and we'll be watching how Kerr's rotations develop over training camp and preseason. Iguodala is one of those guys that offers much more to his actual team than a fantasy squad, and he profiles as more of a late-round flier in standard leagues.
Sep 29 - 7:16 PM

Coach Steve Kerr said "everything's open" when asked if Andre Iguodala might start at small forward this season.

This has been the case all along and Kerr said his lineups will have a lot to do with health of the team. Iguodala is one of the better passing wings in the NBA, so it does make some sense to throw him in the second unit to strengthen that group. After years of being a top-25 pick in fantasy leagues earlier in his career, he's more of a late-round target this season.
Sep 26 - 9:34 AM

Warriors coach Steve Kerr expects to use the same starting lineup from last season, but suggested that Harrison Barnes or Draymond Green could start ahead of Andre Iguodala.

"Andre started last year, which he probably will [again], but there's a lot of options that we have because we've got really good players in Harrison and Draymond," Kerr said. "But most of it usually comes down to ... how do the pieces of the puzzle fit?" Barnes is coming off a quiet season but Green shined in the playoffs, and both players have enough talent to legitimately challenge Iguodala for the starting job. This is a position battle to watch closely during the preseason.

Andre Iguodala will miss Team USA Training this summer due to a lingering knee injury.

Iguodala got an injection for his knee tendinitis and will need to rest over the summer after another long season. Team USA scrimmages in Vegas in late July and starts playing real games in August.
Jul 11 - 2:33 PM

In a radio interview on Thursday, Andre Iguodala said that he doesn't think trading Klay Thompson is a good idea.

Klay's name has come up in recent trade rumors that would have Thompson and others headed to Minnesota in exchange for Kevin Love, but Iguodala hopes the trade doesn't happen. "I want to clear that up right now. We should not trade Klay Thompson," Iguodala told SiriusXM. "We've got to keep Klay first. Then we've got to take care of Klay." Iguodala later added that he thinks Love would be a good addition, but that he wouldn't want to acquire him at the expense of Thompson. However, unless Iguodala has any sway in the front office, his backing of Thompson likely won't change the Warriors' plans on this front.
