Iguodala questionable for Sunday's Warriors-Kings clash

Andre Iguodala could miss the Warriors' clash with the Kings on Sunday due to left hip soreness.

The Warriors are listing Iguodala as questionable, and coach Steve Kerr told reporters Saturday that the veteran forward sat out practice earlier in the day, though the 37-year-old was at the facility.

Iguodala slipped on the court during the second half of the Warriors' 115-113 win over the LA Clippers on Thursday night at Chase Center.

Iguodala did the splits and stayed down on the court for a few moments before getting up and rubbing his left hip while hobbling down the court. He left the game a little while later and was examined by the training staff before returning to the game.

Through two games this season, Iguodala is averaging 8.0 points, 3.5 rebounds and 2.5 assists in 23.3 minutes. The stats might not show it, but he's already making a huge impact on the Warriors.

After two years in Miami, Iguodala returned to the Warriors this summer on a minimum contract with the goal of providing the veteran leadership and on-court quarterbacking that has been missed the last two years.

The Warriors likely have a plan to rest Iguodala throughout the 2021-22 NBA season in anticipation of an NBA playoff run in the spring, but they probably were hoping he wouldn't need time off this early in the year.

If Iguodala can't go Sunday in Sacramento, Kerr will have to find those 23 valuable minutes from someone else.
