Chris Haynes: Warriors forward Andre Iguodala (left knee soreness) questionable for Game 2 on Tuesday against Spurs. The team hasn’t received MRI results.
According to a source, Iguodala didn’t participate in many of the up-and-down court work leading up to Sunday’s Western Conference finals opener because of his knee soreness.
Andre Iguodala said he will get an MRI on Monday to determine the severity of the left knee discomfort that kept him out the entire second half. He could very well miss Game 2 on Tuesday.
The team is officially calling it a sore left knee. But there is a concern Iguodala may have something more serious going on. The MRI will determine if he needs to miss any time. But even if it comes back clean, there is a strong chance Iguodala will be held out for rest and treatment just as a precaution.
Iguodala said the trainer’s told him he was out. He didn’t disagree with the decision even though he’s played through stuff before. Iguodala, known for being meticulously in tune with his body, has had past knee injuries and said he recognizes this feeling. He said it might be more than just normal soreness. He too is waiting for the MRI results to rule out a tear or a bad sprain.
Ben Golliver: Warriors PR says “left knee soreness” for Andre Iguodala. Mike Brown said he “looked a little hobbled” in first half so sat him for stretch
Rosalyn Gold-Onwude: Kerr: Andre Iguodala hip tight last couple days/games. Gave Andre few days off. Matt Barnes could play extended minutes, Draymond too…
Chris Haynes: Golden State Warriors say Andre Iguodala (left hip strain) is out for tonight’s game against the Dallas Mavericks.
Marc Stein: To date, I’m told, Iguodala has required NO cortisone shots in his back, relying instead on treatment from athletic trainer Chelsea Lane. The Warriors’ Chelsea Lane, to be more precise, is a physiotherapist by trade.
Tim Kawakami: Steve Kerr: “Yes, Harrison is starting.”
Of course, it figures that Iguodala’s health will have a greater impact on Game 7 than his pre-game viewing options. He spoke about his condition after skipping the more strenuous parts of practice to receive treatment: I was able to do a lot. I’ve been getting treatment around the clock. The training staff have been doing a helluva of a job, just making sure I’m good. I just had a really long flight, and it just kind of built up on me a little bit. But the staff has done a great job. It kind of just popped up. Like I said, a long flight and bed and just fatigue, and a lot of minutes lately. It’s just a perfect storm. But I’m glad we caught it early as opposed to happening in a Game 7. […]
It remains to be seen what kind of condition Iguodala will be for Sunday’s Game 7 at Oracle Arena and he offered no hints himself, departing Quicken Loans Arena without speaking to the media. “I continued to talk to the trainers throughout the game,” coach Steve Kerr said. “I wanted to make sure it wasn’t anything that was going to get worse. So his back was tight, but we tried to limit his minutes as much as we could.”
Rusty Simmons: Kerr said he hopes Iguodala will be back within a week.
Marc J. Spears: Warriors coach Steve Kerr says Andre Iguodala is still “a ways away from playing” and Festus Ezeli is “progressing nicely” & playing 2-on-2.
Golden State forward Andre Iguodala will miss at least two weeks due to a sprained left ankle. Iguodala got hurt in the second half of the league-leading Warriors’ 128-112 win against Portland on Friday. He will be re-evaluated in two weeks. “It’s a big deal. It’s a really big deal,” Kerr said before Saturday’s game against Phoenix. “Andre’s so important to everything we do. Not only just in terms of schematically, but just emotionally.”

An outdoor amphitheater on Capitol Mall. Autonomous vehicles shuttling tourists from Sacramento International Airport to Golden 1 Center. A waterfront festival along the Port of Sacramento accommodating hundreds of people staying on luxury cruise ships. Sacramento’s bid to host the NBA All-Star Game in 2022 or 2023 is a mix of high-tech flash and outside-the-box concepts aimed at bolstering a proposal seen by many as a long shot. The bid, revealed to The Sacramento Bee late Wednesday, will be formally introduced Thursday at a press conference outside Golden 1 Center and delivered to the NBA the following day. The bid package will include virtual reality tours of event spaces and testimonials from team officials, local political leaders and former Kings legends.
Another topic at the first practice back was the prime topic in the country right now: Gun control. In the wake of the latest massacre in Florida, some high schoolers who survived the shooting have spoken out loudly about the issue, drumming up more conversation and potential change than at any other point. Kerr, who is passionate about the issue, was asked about the ongoing dialogue. “I think it’s phenomenal,” Kerr said. “What those kids are doing is heroic, it’s heartfelt and I think it’s the beginning of some change. I really believe that. I’m amazed every time I see on TV or online, it’s heartbreaking but inspiring all at once.
“I feel very encouraged. We’ve got a generation that’s grown up with these school shootings and mass shootings and they’re fed up. Historically, it’s a young generation that has to initiate change. You think about the Vietnam war. “All the old white guys who kept sending the troops over to fight this ridiculous war, it was all the young people who protested, had to make change, communicate. It’s the young people in the country now who are going to create the change we need in terms of how we handle gun violence and how we do our best to curb it. It’s amazing to watch.”

He also mentioned talking with Philadelphia 76ers center Joel Embiid, although that conversation didn’t have as much depth to it. “He told me I should trust the process and come play for Philly,” Antetokounmpo said with a chuckle, drawing a laugh. “That was my reaction — I just laughed.”
