REPORT: Andre Iguodala upgraded to questionable for Game 3 vs. Cavs
So far, many of the Warriors players have shined (yes, even JaVale McGee). Stephen Curry played a historic game in Game 2, Klay Thompson came back from injury to shoot lights out in Game 1. It’s been a good go of it for the entire roster.
Andre Iguodala has had to sit on the Warriors bench for the entire series because of a leg injury he suffered the previous round against the Houston Rockets. His status has mostly been day-to-day.
But it appears Iguodala — or Iggy as everyone likes to call him — could make a return as soon as the next game of the series, per Chris Haynes of ESPN.
Steve Kerr says Andre Iguodala is upgraded to questionable for Game 3. Kerr says he’s hopeful he can go. And if not, Game 4 would be the goal.

It’s not like the Warriors have lost games without their former Finals MVP, but they have definitely missed Igoudala. He provides a defensive dynamic that no other player on their roster can really give them. Shaun Livingston has done a pretty good job of holding down the fort, but the Warriors need Iguodala.
Now that it appears he can come back soon after his status was raised by the team, the Warriors will be an even bigger force to be reckoned with once he does actually step between the lines.
The Cavaliers have had no answers for the Warriors in the first two games. But now as the series shifts to Cleveland, the Warriors are going to need all the help and veteran leadership they can get.
Iguodala will be a good addition on that front.
