Warriors G/F Andre Iguodala out indefinitely


According to Marcus Thompson II at the Contra Costa Times, Golden State Warriors’ guard/forward Andre Iguodala will be out indefinitely with a hamstring strain.

Iguodala suffered the injury during the Warriors’ 102-95 loss to the Lakers in Los Angeles on Friday during a steal attempt in the third quarter.

Per the Contra Costa Times report:

A timetable for his return is unknown, but Iguodala won’t play Saturday night against the Portland TrailBlazers. The team described him as “out indefinitely.”

 

Iguodala sustained the injury late in the third quarter of Friday’s loss to the host Los Angeles Lakers. He had an MRI on Saturday to learn the severity of the injury, which left him barely able to walk after the game.

Iguodala was acquired as part of a sign-and-trade deal involving the Denver Nuggets and Utah Jazz back in July.  The Warriors sent Andris Biedrins, Richard Jefferson and Brandon Rush along with (2014 and 2017) first round and 2016-17 second round picks along with cash considerations to the Jazz and a second round pick to the Nuggets, per NBA.com.

Iguodala has been averaging 12.9 points per game for Golden State to go along with 4.2 rebounds and 6.3 assists in 2013.
