The Golden State Warriors made a big splash in free agency, adding versatile swingman Andre Iguodala to a team that reached the second round of the playoffs last season.
Iguodala got off to a nice start with the Warriors, but he injured his hamstring in a 102-95 loss to the Los Angeles Lakers on November 22 and has missed the Warriors’ last 10 games.
Iguodala hopes to return soon, according to the Associated Press.
Iguodala said Thursday that the sides are “in the same chapter. Not on the same page.” He says he hopes to come back “really soon” but will leave the decision up to team trainers.
Iguodala is expected to miss his 11th straight game when the Warriors host the Houston Rockets on Friday night. He says he’s shooting the ball well and jumping high, but he hasn’t tried to change directions or stop and start again — the true tests of whether he can come back.
On the season, Iguodala is averaging 12.9 points, 6.3 assists, 4.2 rebounds and 1.9 steals in 37.2 minutes per game.
