Golden State Warriors players are reportedly not optimistic about the chances of Andre Iguodala returning for them tonight in Game 5 of the Western Conference Finals vs. the Houston Rockets.

And that feeling has been confirmed by head coach Steve Kerr.

It is a nice lift that Klay Thompson will play.

Iguodala missed Game 4 with a leg injury that he suffered in the 41-point Game 3 win. The Warriors lost by just three so his absence could have definitely been the difference.

The Warriors likely feel that they blew a golden opportunity regardless after they jumped out to a 12-0 lead in the opening minutes.

Iguodala started the last few games he played as part of the Hamptons 5 lineup the Warriors have been touting. Golden State still has the tools to beat the Rockets but will have to play even better tonight with Iguodala out.
