Warriors forward Andre Iguodala will miss Game 2 of the NBA Finals due to right knee inflammation, according to the team’s official injury report. Iguodala played in Game 1 after missing nearly six weeks, recording seven points and three assists in 12 minutes.
Iguodala previously missed time due to a left cervical disc injury in his neck. He suffered that injury in Game 4 of the team’s first-round series against the Nuggets, so he has only appeared in four playoff games. Iguodala will be listed as day-to-day, head coach Steve Kerr said, as relayed by Marc Spears of ESPN (Twitter link).
Iguodala, 38, averaged 4.0 points, 3.2 rebounds and 3.7 assists in 19.5 minutes per game this season, playing 31 contests. All of those averages are career-lows.
Iguodala signed with the Warriors in free agency after struggling to produce with the Heat last season. He holds 18 years of NBA experience and helped Golden State win championships in 2015, 2017 and 2018. His absence may allow other players (such as Otto Porter, Gary Payton II and Jonathan Kuminga) to receive more time.
