Marc J. Spears: Warriors say Andre Iguodala (left knee soreness) probable and Zaza Pachulia (right heel contusion) is out for Game 3 against Spurs.
Marc J. Spears: The Warriors say Andre Iguodala (left knee soreness) & Zaza Pachulia (right heel contusion) are questionable for Game 3 at Spurs.
Anthony Slater: Andre Iguodala went through full practice in San Antonio, Zaza Pachulia didn't do much. Both questionable for Game 3, Iguodala more likely.
Chris Haynes: Golden State Warriors forward Andre Iguodala (knee soreness) will not play tonight against San Antonio Spurs.
Monte Poole: Andre Iguodala (L knee soreness) still uncertain for Gm 2 of WC Finals, per #Warriors coach Mike Brown.
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.
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."

Nets shut down Ben Simmons for the rest of the season
Nick Friedell: Jacque Vaughn says the Nets are shutting down Ben Simmons for the rest of the season.
Jared Weiss: Payton Pritchard will play tonight. Said he had plantar fasciitis and a bone bruise in his heel but he finally feels ready to go.
A.J. Perez: Josh Harris, the owner of the 76ers and Devils, has entered a fully-funded bid to purchase the Washington Commanders, source confirms to @FOS. @AdamSchefter reports the bid was for $6B. Story to come.
Jimmy Haslam offered up the first public comments on his impeding purchase of a significant share of the Milwaukee Bucks on Monday at the NFL owner’s meetings in Arizona. Speaking to Ohio reporters, Jimmy and Dee Haslam — owners of the Cleveland Browns — said the purchase of Marc Lasry’s 25% is still weeks away from NBA approval so they didn’t want to get into specifics, but did say Wes Edens would assume governorship of the team while the Haslam Sports Group learns the NBA business.
“It’s opportunistic,” Jimmy Haslam said of the impending purchase. “I mean listen, we never thought we’d own 10% of the Steelers. Never thought we’d own the Browns. Dee and I had never been, beside watching (daughter) Whitney play high school soccer, had never been to a soccer game. So it’s just opportunistic. It was straightened set of circumstances; we were called on this opportunity. Business, sports, you tend to be optimistic. I have no idea what will happen next. First thing’s first, let’s get this done and then let’s get the Browns winning games.”
Sports Illustrated Studios & 101 Studios has partnered with future Hall of Famer Stephen Curry and his Unanimous Media to produce a narrative film and a documentary about the All Star Café. The projects will be based on Jon Wertheim’s 2020 Sports Illustrated article.
The All Star Café opened in New York City on December 18, 1995, with much fanfare as the themed eatery set up to be for sports what the Hard Rock Cafe is for music. It opened with a flurry of paparazzi, red carpet and a slew of A list celebrities and athletes, but the final buzzer sounded on September 23, 2007 when it shuttered under the cloud of bankruptcy. That final chapter included the largest sports memorabilia heist in history cooked up by a group of knuckle-headed kitchen staffers, in what has been hailed as a Coen Brothers Fargo-esque criminal event.
