X-rays were clean, but Iguodala continues to have soreness and is still questionable for Tuesday night’s Game 2 matchup with the San Antonio Spurs.
Warriors coach Steve Kerr attended Game 1 of the Western Conference finals Sunday afternoon at Oracle Arena in his first game since taking an indefinite leave of absence.
The Warriors were as big as 9-1 underdogs to win in live betting in Las Vegas before overcoming a 25-point deficit to win Game 1 against the Spurs.
The Warriors will now evaluate the best course of action moving forward. Resting Iguodala, 33, a game as a precautionary measure is on the table, a team source told ESPN, even if the results come back clean.
Stephen Curry also missed Monday’s practice. Interim coach Mike Brown said Curry was “good to go.”
The news of Iguodala’s MRI coming back clean was first reported by The Vertical.
The Warriors have been cognizant all season about keeping Iguodala’s minutes low and his practice workload limited.
According to a source, Iguodala didn’t participate in much of the up-and-down court work leading up to Sunday’s Western Conference finals opener because of his knee soreness.
The Warriors’ super reserve played only 10 minutes Sunday, scoring two points and registering an assist in the team’s 113-111 comeback victory.
