Warriors’ Andre Iguodala on his plan to return from injury
The Golden State Warriors focused on health over wins all season long, and it netted them the number two seed in the NBA behind the Houston Rockets. Unfortunately for Golden State, they were dealt a huge blow in Game 3 of their Western Conference Finals series against Houston when Andre Iguodala suffered a knee injury. What appeared to be a minor knee-to-knee bump, however, forced Iguodala out of Game 4 at home as well as Game 5 on the road.
According to ESPN’s Chris Haynes, the plan was for Iguodala to return for Game 4, but his knee unfortunately hasn’t responded the way they were hoping.
Andre Iguodala to ESPN on trying to get back on the court: “Last game was the plan. Tonight was the plan. So, it’s all about timing. Just trying to get it right. Make sure I can go.”

Iguodala has started nine games in the postseason for the Warriors, and they’ve gone 9-2 in those games. In the one game he didn’t start, the Dubs dropped it to New Orleans Pelicans.
Iguodala is a major part of the Golden State lineup, especially when they want to go with their death lineup, otherwise known as the ‘Hamptons 5.’
