Andre Iguodala suffers apparent leg injury late in Game 1 of NBA Finals

Andre Iguodala suffers apparent leg injury late in Game 1 of NBA Finals

Adding injury to insult at the end of Game 1 of the NBA Finals, Golden State Warriors forward Andre Iguodala might have suffered an injury to his leg.

With 1:55 remaining in the Warriors' 118-109 loss, Iguodala cut down the lane, took a pass from Draymond Green and hit a floater to cut the Toronto Raptors lead to eight.

But after he landed, Iguodala appeared to grab his left hamstring. He knew something was wrong right away as he went back down the court to play defense.

Iguodala was subbed out with 1:19 remaining in regulation.

"I think he’s doing OK," Warriors head coach Steve Kerr told the media after the game. "We’ll have an update [Friday]."

Iguodala himself didn't seem too concerned after the game, as he told reporters, "I'll be fine."

The Warriors are already without two-time NBA Finals MVP Kevin Durant, who is still recovering from a right calf strain.

If Iguodala is forced to miss time, the Warriors could be in big trouble.

Luckily for Iguodala and the Warriors, Game 2 of the NBA Finals is on Sunday, so he has two days to get treatment on the injury.

What Warriors' Klay Thompson repeatedly told Damion Lee during rehab

What Warriors' Klay Thompson repeatedly told Damion Lee during rehab

Damion Lee tore his right ACL on Nov. 27, 2013 during his junior season at Drexel University.

The Warriors guard then tore his left ACL on Dec. 23, 2016 while playing for the Maine Red Claws -- the Boston Celtics' G League affiliate.

Klay Thompson tore his left ACL during Game 6 of the 2019 NBA Finals against the Toronto Raptors.

"We've had several conversations before about rehab in regards to the ACL," Lee said this week on the "Runnin' Plays" podcast with Kerith Burke and Grant Liffmann. "He'd always joke, 'Damn, D-Lee. I don't know how you did this twice because this is a lot.'

"It's cool to see what he's been through and now wanting to come back and go all out."

What kind of 2020-21 season does Lee expect from Klay when the three-time NBA champion finally returns to game action?

"I feel like he wants to show people that he is the best two-way guard in the league," Lee said. "He's done it before. He's in a pretty good mind space. I think he's just ready to go out there and play."

Klay wasn't around the team a lot last season. But when he was at Chase Center, he made his presence felt.

"There were a lot of times where he'd just pull younger guys aside and give guys little tidbits," Lee explained. "It's unique to see. Everyone is so used to seeing Klay being quiet or reserved. Hearing him actually speak up and talk and give some input is huge.

"That's a huge step -- not only for him but the team and a lot of the younger guys seeing him as a big brother and as an influence."

Watch Warriors' Steph Curry adorably teach son Canon to golf on beach

Watch Warriors' Steph Curry adorably teach son Canon to golf on beach

The thing Steph Curry probably loves more than basketball is his family … and golf. Golf is probably a close second, but the man is obsessed with the game. So what happens when the Warriors’ superstar introduces his son Canon to it?

Well, cuteness … obviously.

I know, it’s the cutest thing you will see today.

[RUNNIN' PLAYS PODCAST: Listen to the latest episode]

Curry will be playing once again in the American Century Championship celebrity golf tournament this weekend in Lake Tahoe. It’ll be his eighth appearance, to give you a sense of how much he loves it.

We could all assume Steph is looking forward to the day both he and Canon could truly enjoy the greens together. He’s obsessed with the game. So much so, he would think about it during basketball.

"I think I think about golf too much -- and that's a problem,” he said in an episode of "Stephen vs The Game." “Like, during a game, yeah. The game of golf just gets under my skin.”

Steph might not have touched a club until the age of 10, which is well after he started toying around on the court, but he excelled at it per usual.

Still, he admitted he was “haunted” by the game -- a notion his wife Ayesha mentioned.

Either way, this important aspect of his life will be exciting to hand down to young Canon.
