Iguodala available to play vs. 76ers after 11-game absence


Andre Iguodala is back in the Warriors' rotation after missing the last 11 games, and he will suit up against the team that drafted him with the No. 9 overall pick back in 2004.

Iguodala went through pregame warmups and was cleared to play against the Philadelphia 76ers at Wells Fargo Center on Saturday night.

The 18-year NBA veteran has been dealing with right knee soreness and swelling, which has caused him to sit out more than three weeks. Iguodala last played on Nov. 16 against the Brooklyn Nets. He played 19 minutes in the Warriors' 117-99 win at Barclays Center.

In 12 games this season, Iguodala is averaging 3.8 points, 3.8 assists and 3.5 rebounds in 20.8 minutes.

Iguodala has a chance to be on the court as one of his best friends, Steph Curry, takes aim at NBA history. The reigning NBA scoring champ needs nine 3-pointers to tie Ray Allen's all-time record for makes in a career, and 10 to break the record.

If things play out correctly, Iguodala could get the assist on the record-breaking shot.
