Andre Iguodala suffered the injury late in Game 3 when he banged knees with James Harden. Because of the injury, the 34-year-old didn’t participate in Monday’s practice and the Warriors’ team thinks that the injury got worse since Sunday.
While Patrick McCaw’s absence from the game might not be so noticeable, in case that Iguodala can’t play in Game 4 that could really be problematic for Golden State Warriors. He has been averaging 8.7 points, 4.3 rebounds and 1.7 assists in the first three game of the Western Conference Finals but his impact is much bigger than his box score, considering all the small things he does for the Warriors.
Andre Iguodala joined the Golden State Warriors in 2013 and established himself as the key role player for the team during their two NBA Championship runs. In the summer of 2017, Iguodala was a highly sought-after player on the free agents market bud decided to stay with the Warriors agreeing on a three-year, $48 million contract.
