Andre Iguodala appeared to aggravate leg injury in Game 1
The Golden State Warriors added injury to the insult of losing Game 1 of the NBA Finals on Thursday night in Toronto.
Andre Iguodala appeared to aggravate a leg injury in the final two minutes of the Golden State Warriors’ 118-109 defeat to the Raptors.
Iguodala made a hook shot inside to make it 111-103 with 1:55 left. He was grabbing his left leg right away.

Iguodala was replaced by Alfonzo McKinnie at the next chance about 30 seconds later.
The 35-year-old has been dealing with a left calf injury that kept him out of Game 4 of the Western Conference Finals against Portland. The injury was not enough to keep him out of Thursday’s game, but him leaving the game early indicates he may have pushed himself back too quickly.
Iguodala had 6 points, 6 rebounds and 7 assists in 29 minutes. He’ll have two full days off before Game 2 on Sunday.
