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.
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."
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."
