The Golden State Warriors will have to take a game-by-game approach to the health and status of Andre Iguodala, who’s defense of Cleveland Cavaliers’ superstar LeBron James is critical to the Warriors success in the NBA Finals.
Iguodala is slated to miss Game 1 of the NBA Finals with a lower left leg contusion, but there is hope that the elite defender can take the court in the near future.
Warriors president Bob Myers is certainly optimistic about Iguodala.
“It’s one of those things that it heals when it heals,” Myers said of Iguodala’s injury, according to Mark Medina of the San Jose Mercury News. “I’d love to say – that’s a nice way to say it – that I’m guardedly optimistic. But I have no way to say when that will be. I don’t think anybody does. Your body heals when it heals.”
“When he’s out there and able to run and jump, he’ll play. It’s the Finals. There’s nothing to save it for. At this point, he can’t. For his sake and ours, I hope he can get back soon.”
“We’ve had a lot of opinions,” Iguodala said of his injury. “I think that’s just standard. I think that can be, not blown out of proportion by someone reporting it, but it can be taken as someone not doing their job. But its all due diligence… We’re all on the same page at this point.”
