Andre Iguodala expected to play in Game 5 despite knee injury

Andre Iguodala

Andre Iguodala suffered a knee injury in the Golden State Warriors’ loss to the Houston Rockets in Game 4 Monday night, but the veteran swingman is not expected to miss any time in the series because of it.

Shams Charania of The Athletic reports that tests revealed no structural damage in Iguodala’s left knee, and he is expected to play in Game 5 on Wednesday night.

Iguodala appeared to tweak his knee late in the fourth quarter of Game 4, when Chris Paul ran into his leg as Iguodala was grabbing a rebound on a missed free throw.

Despite being 35, Iguodala still plays a significant role for the Warriors, and Steve Kerr recently indicated that he does not see that changing any time soon. With Golden State having lost two straight games and the series tied 2-2, they need all of their important players healthy and available. Iguodala will be at least one of those things on Wednesday night.
