Andre Iguodala (leg) came off the bench for 11 points with two rebounds, two steals, two blocks and three 3-pointers in 23 minutes in Game 4 against the Cavs on Friday.
He had a major impact in the first half with three 3-pointers. Surprisingly, he only had three games with 3-plus treys this season and he ranked dead last among the 330 players with at least 20 unguarded catch-and-shoot jumpers in halfcourt (Synergy). Iguodala continues to be a key role player on the Warriors, but his career arc could take a downward turn as he'll turn 35 next season and has dealt with numerous leg injuries. Iggy is making a case for the Hall of Fame with three titles and a Finals MVP on his resume. Jun 8 - 11:34 PM

Andre Iguodala (leg) will play in Game 4 on Friday.

He was called probable to play on Thursday, and he was getting shots up at shootaround earlier today. Iguodala suffered a right leg injury in Game 3, which isn't the same leg that kept him out at the end of the Rockets series and the start of the NBA Finals.
Jun 8 - 7:32 PM

Andre Iguodala (right lower limb contusion) is listed as probable for Game 4 on Friday.

This is a separate injury from what had him sidelined for the six games leading up to Game 3, but it shouldn't cause him any problems. Iguodala played 22 minutes in Game 3 and had plenty of bounce in a late fourth quarter dunk over Tristan Thompson.
Jun 7 - 5:02 PM

Andre Iguodala had no limp on Thursday and said he has "no issues" holding him back from playing in Game 4 on Friday.

He went to the locker room during the second quarter and some were reporting a noticeable limp, but he returned and logged a total of 22 minutes. Iguodala also took on the heavy load of guarding LeBron James. In the final two minutes, he had a monster dunk over Tristan Thompson that really eliminated any doubt of his status for Game 4.
Jun 7 - 4:30 PM

Andre Iguodala (left leg bone bruise) returned on Wednesday with eight points, two rebounds, one assist and one steal in 22 minutes off the bench.

Iguodala missed six games with a left leg injury and wasn't moving with his normal fluidity prior to leaving the game with a right leg injury in the second quarter. He returned to finish the Warriors' 110-102 victory but as a simple precaution we'll list him as questionable for Game 4 on Friday. Given that the Warriors have a 3-0 lead in the series, they're unlikely to alter the starting lineup regardless of Iguodala's availability.
Jun 6 - 11:50 PM

Andre Iguodala (leg) exited Wednesday's game in the second quarter, but he has since returned.

Initial reports are that Iguodala tweaked his right leg, not his pre-existing left leg bone bruise, and his speed return is encouraging. Check back after the game to see how he fared.
Jun 6 - 10:33 PM

Andre Iguodala (left knee bone bruise) will return for Game 3 of the Finals on Wednesday, according to ESPN's Chris Haynes.

The Cavs will stick with their starters from Game 2 no matter where Iguodala begins the game, according to Ty Lue. Iguodala gives the Warriors another elite defender to check LeBron James, and he should cut into the minutes of Nick Young and Shaun Livingston.
Jun 6 - 7:59 PM

Andre Iguodala (leg) will be a game-time decision for Wednesday's Game 3 in Cleveland.

Steve Kerr did say that there's a good chance we'll see Iguodala take the floor tonight, but the Dubs want him to go through his pregame routine before an official decision is made. Iggy could be dealing with a minutes limit if he does get back tonight, and he'd likely come off the bench, but his return to the rotation would help the Warriors' odds of pulling off a sweep in this year's Finals. Stay tuned.
Jun 6 - 1:01 PM

Steve Kerr said that Andre Iguodala (leg) is "doing better" and that Iguodala has been upgraded to questionable for Game 3 vs. Cleveland.

Iguodala, who has been sidelined since Game 3 of the Western Conference Finals, has been making solid progress of late. On Monday, Kerr said that Iggy had been "pain-free" over the past few days. The Warriors already have a healthy 2-0 lead on the Cavs, and the addition of Iguodala, a former Finals MVP, to their lineup would give them another stout defender to throw at LeBron James. He's set to go through a full practice on Tuesday, so things are trending in a positive direction.
Jun 5 - 1:37 PM

Andre Iguodala (leg) has been "pain-free" over the last few days and plans to return sometime during the NBA Finals.

Iguodala has been out since Game 3 of the Houston series and has progressed slower than expected, but he's finally nearing a return. "I aim to play in Game 3, but I've aimed to play in Game 2 and Game 3," Iggy said. "We'll just have to see." It's not clear if the Warriors will practice on Monday, but expect another update no later than Tuesday.

Jun 4 - 1:19 PM

Andre Iguodala (leg) has officially been ruled out for Sunday's Game 2 against the Cavs.

Iguodala hasn't played since Game 3 of the Western Conference Finals, but head coach Steve Kerr did say he was "optimistic" that Iguodala will be able to get back "at some point" during the Finals. Klay Thompson (ankle) will go through his pregame routine before the Dubs make the final call on him, but if he's forced to join Iggy on the sidelines, that could translate to big minutes for guys like Shaun Livingston, Nick Young and Quinn Cook.
Jun 3 - 6:20 PM

Coach Steve Kerr said Andre Iguodala (leg) is day-to-day and is still doubtful for Game 2 on Sunday.

The coach added that Iggy is improving, which the team has been saying for almost a week now. The fact that Iguodala didn't play in a crucial Game 7 vs. Houston indicates that he would likely need to miss the two home games. For now, it seems like Game 3 on Wednesday is a reasonable target. Until then, look for a possible switch with JaVale McGee as a starter with more Kevon Looney, Shaun Livingston, Jordan Bell and Nick Young helping out.
Jun 2 - 3:41 PM

Andre Iguodala (leg) is doubtful for Game 2 on Sunday.

The good news is he did a few things at practice today, but the team mentioned "inflammation of the nerve surrounding the left knee" was a big issue for the former Finals MVP before Game 1. While Iguodala is optimistic he will make it back in this series, it sounds like he may have to wait until the Warriors get to Cleveland. JaVale McGee gave the Warriors great energy in the third on Thursday, so he may actually start over Kevon Looney. Shaun Livingston should also be a factor.
Jun 1 - 4:51 PM

Andre Iguodala (left knee bone bruise) is optimistic that he'll return during the NBA Finals.

Iguodala has already been ruled out for Game 1 with persistent pain and "inflammation of the nerve surrounding the left knee." He admitted that his progress has been "slower than expected," but said he doesn't have "too much doubt" that he'll be cleared to play before the Finals conclude. If necessary, Game 7 would be played June 17 at Oracle Arena, potentially giving him more than two weeks to convalesce. Until he returns, we should continue to see Kevon Looney starting with more minutes available for Shaun Livingston and Nick Young.
May 30 - 7:53 PM

Andre Iguodala (leg) is listed as out for Game 1 against the Cavs on Thursday.

According to the team, he is making progress, but "the pain that accompanies the bone bruise persists, as done the inflammation of the nerve surrounding the left knee." That's not exactly an encouraging description of his injury, and he had trouble with forward and lateral movement over the weekend. Iguodala will be re-evaluated again before Game 2, but he could certainly be out for that one. With no Hamptons Five lineup, Kevon Looney likely starts with more Shaun Livingston, Nick Young and Jordan Bell.
