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."

Callie Caplan: In a recent conversation with Jason Kidd, Luka Doncic asked: “What can I do more?” Kidd’s answer: “That’s a hard question to answer because he’s doing everything for us. I jokingly said, ‘I could play you 48 minutes,’ and he would be up for that. He wants to help this team win.”
Callie Caplan: Jason Kidd said Mavs miss Jalen Brunson off the court as much as on: “You can ask Josh and DP and Maxi, those guys in that locker room, when things weren’t going well, he was always someone that’s a calming voice to be positive and try to help you out of a slump.”

The consensus around the league is that Horford, even at his advanced age, left money on the table to remain with the Celtics. “I think he could have got more,” the executive said. “This is definitely a hometown discount, it’s like Dirk (Nowitzki) or Tim Duncan (both signed team-friendly contracts late in their careers). But, look, the teams with money next year are mostly young teams. So maybe Horford was looking at the landscape and saw who had cap space and wound up saying, ‘I do not want to go to Houston, man.’ It is a win for both sides, really, but if he wanted to chase money, he could have gotten more.”
