During Tuesday’s thrilling 98-96 victory over the Indiana Pacers (in which guard Klay Thompson won on a jumper with just .06 seconds to play), Golden State Warriors’ swingman Andre Iguodala suffered an injured finger.
The injury was called a dislocated finger and on Wednesday, that news was confirmed. X-rays, however, came back negative, according to Rusty Simmons of the San Francisco Chronicle.
Iguodala left the game after playing just 23 minutes and scoring six points on three-of-nine shooting to go with two rebounds and an assist.
After being traded from the Philadelphia 76ers to the Denver Nuggets in the Dwight Howard trade last season, the Warriors offered Iguodala big money after whiffing on Howard in free agency and he gladly accepted.
This season, Iguodala has had a reduced role shooting-wise and is averaging 9.3 points, 4.8 rebounds and 4.3 assists per game.
