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."

“From what I understand, I don’t think the Nets are thrilled with the offers they have gotten for Durant yet,” said Windhorst. “I don’t think that that’s a hot take considering that they’re reassessing with where they’re at. I think the reason is this: It’s somewhat known in the NBA that Durant prefers going to the Phoenix Suns and the Suns offer, what they have to offer right now just isn’t that interesting to Brooklyn. Brooklyn is interested in other things. That’s why Woj and others talking about needing a third or fourth team in a deal.
Since Kevin Durant requested a trade from the Nets last Thursday, he’s reportedly “gone dark” in regards to speaking with other basketball players and team personnel, according to Yahoo Sports’ Chris Haynes. “Since he requested a trade, there’s been numerous stars that I’ve spoken to, numerous stars that have been trying to get in touch with him to pick his brain to see if he would consider other avenues, just want to get a sense of what he’s thinking—KD’s going dark,” Haynes said on his Posted Up podcast. “He’s not talking to anybody. Not answering anybody’s phone calls, not responding to texts. The only time you see him get out into the sunlight is when he responds on Twitter, and he’s not saying anything much on there.”
“I think that’s another consideration Brooklyn has to make about whether it’s a positive or negative to move Kyrie Irving either before Kevin Durant or after Kevin Durant,” Woj said regarding an Irving trade on NBA Today. “The market is certainly very different for Kevin Durant than it is for Kyrie Irving. “The Nets have talked with the Lakers and I believe there has been back-and-forth, some communication. You look at where there’s cap space right now and a team like San Antonio could be a facilitator right now in let’s say a Russell Westbrook for Kyrie Irving deal between the teams. They have the cap space. Now, you have to incentivize them at a pretty high level and I think that’s the willingness of the Lakers to incentivize a deal with multiple draft picks. I think that’s part of the reason that the deal hasn’t gone anywhere yet.”
John Gambadoro: I do believe we are close to a resolution on Deandre Ayton maybe even by tomorrow. Indiana has the cap space and I’ve heard rumblings of them signing him to an offer sheet. I’ve also heard Toronto has some interest but I do not know at what level.
While Deandre Ayton has been viewed as a potential trade chip in Kevin Durant talks, the restricted free-agent center has reportedly been exploring his options elsewhere. ESPN’s Brian Windhorst said on the Hoop Collective podcast (44:50 mark) that Ayton has taken meetings with teams that “are not involved in potential Durant negotiations.” It’s unclear whether any of those teams have made formal contract offers.
After a season where he even flirted with the final four, Mike James is ready to say “yes” to Monaco’s offer that will keep him in the team with the aim of reaching at least Europe’s top four in the upcoming season. Before the season even ended, Monaco had presented a renewal offer to James, which was below the threshold of two million euros per year. Now the amounts have risen to this level and James, who was discreetly looking toward the NBA, is ready to accept it and remain in the Principality.
