Report: Andre Iguodala still does not know what’s wrong with knee
The Golden State Warriors prevailed over the Houston Rockets in the Western Conference Finals despite not having Andre Iguodala for more than half of the series, and they may to overcome the same obstacle in the NBA Finals.
Iguodala is still recovering from a knee injury he suffered in Game 3 against Houston, and Warriors coach Steve Kerr said after Monday’s series-clinching win that the 34-year-old has not healed the way the team had hoped.
When asked, on TNT, about Andre Igoudala’s status for the Finals, Steve Kerr responds: “We’ll see. It’s literally a day-to-day thing. But he has not progressed, unfortunately, as well as we thought he would.”

Golden State would probably have some closure if there was a timetable put on Iguodala’s recovery, but ESPN’s Chris Haynes reports that Iguodala recently got a second opinion and still does not know exactly what’s wrong. The Warriors have labeled the injury a left lateral leg contusion. Iguodala is planning to “search for a remedy in the coming days,” according to Haynes.
Iguodala bumped knees with James Harden during Game 3, and the play did not look all that bad. However, the swingman is said to be dealing with a bone bruise, and those can linger and be extremely painful.
