Andre Iguodala out at least three games with knee tendinitis


The Golden State Warriors are very much subject to the challenging climate of the Western Conference playoff picture. Each game matters, and so they received some bad news Tuesday night.

The team will be without Andre Iguodala for at least three games due to right knee tendinitis.

J.A. Andande of ESPN notes of the volatility of Golden State’s spot in the standings.

Iguodala has started 56 games for the Warriors this season, putting up typical Iguodala-type numbers: 9.3 PPG, 4.6 RPG and 4.2 APG. The Warriors have been coming on strong of late, going 6-2 thus far in March. Their next three games are against the Orlando Magic, Milwaukee Bucks, and San Antonio Spurs. They then have a fortuitous break with five days off.

If the injury does not linger then the Warriors should be able to weather this storm. But if Iguodala’s knee takes longer to heal it might put Golden State up against it in the Western Conference playoff race.
