The Warriors got a very important win Saturday night, but they might have lost a very important member of their team in the process.
Andre Iguodala suffered a lower leg injury during Game 3 of the Western Conference finals, and he'll undergo an MRI on Sunday, per Warriors coach Steve Kerr.

The former NBA Finals MVP was seen flipping off an ESPN camera in the tunnel to the Warriors' locker room midway through the first quarter, and one would assume he was headed back there to have his leg checked out.
For what it's worth, ESPN's Brian Windhorst described Iguodala's injury as a "sore Achilles" and said he'd be "stunned" if the Warriors star played in Game 4 against the Portland Trail Blazers, regardless of what the MRI shows. Meanwhile, The Athletic's Anthony Slater reported it's a calf injury for Iguodala.
It’s a left calf issue for Andre Iguodala.— Anthony Slater (@anthonyVslater) May 19, 2019
Iguodala played 18 minutes in Golden State's 110-99 win, but he scored just two points, making only one of the five field goals he attempted. Alfonzo McKinnie filled in nicely, finishing a game-best plus-24 in 21 minutes of action, and if Iguodala were to miss Game 4, McKinnie would likely assume many of his minutes.
