As expected Andre Iguodala will play tonight in game four of the NBA finals. Iguodala suffered another injury last game but it was a different injury from the one that caused him to missed six games. In game three, Iguodala played 22 minutes and finished with 8 points.
Iguodala is set to make his return from a six-game absence, according to ESPN’s Chris Haynes, and will play in Wednesday’s Game 3 matchup with the Cleveland Cavaliers following his original questionable designation on the injury report with a knee injury. Head coach Steve Kerr didn’t tip his hand on whether Iguodala would reclaim his spot in the starting lineup right off the bat, but Iguodala will reportedly have his minutes monitored, even though he isn’t necessarily subject to a strict minute restriction this evening. Because of this, it seems likely that he will come off the bench, especially with how successful the Warriors have been with JaVale McGee at center thus far in the NBA Finals, but the presence of Iguodala in the rotation will mean less playing time for players like Shaun Livingston, Kevon Looney, David West, and Jordan Bell, while Nick Young could find himself relegated from the wing rotation entirely.
