Iguodala, now 33 years of age, has been dealing with several nagging injuries, which caused him to miss seven games. In his 39 appearances with the Warriors this season, the former Arizona Wildcat has turned in averages of 5.7 points on 42.2 percent shooting from the field, 3.8 rebounds, and 3.4 assists.
Bell, 23, was taken off the court in a wheelchair on Wednesday night after an attempt at blocking a shot from Chicago Bulls big man Robin Lopez. The former University of Oregon stand-out has played in 38 games with the Warriors this season, averaging 5.1 points on 66.4 percent shooting from the field, 3.9 rebounds, and 1.8 assists. Bell’s X-Rays came back clean, and he’s scheduled to be re-evaluated in two weeks.
With Iguodala and Bell out of the lineup, Omri Casspi and Nick Young will likely see additional playing time.
Thursday night’s game is set to tip at 8:30 p.m. EST with ABC having live broadcast coverage. Let’s see if the Warriors can keep their four-game winning streak alive.
