Warriors say Andre Iguodala’s MRI came out clean. He’s expected to be available for Game 2— Mark Medina (@MarkG_Medina) May 31, 2019
After Iguodala made a floater with just under two minutes remaining in the Warriors' 118-109 loss in Game 1 of the NBA Finals, he immediately began limping and clapped his hands in frustration.
Moments later, he exited the game.
After the 118-109 loss to the Raptors, the 35-year old didn't sound too concerned.
"I'll be all right. Just bumps and bruises of the game," he told reporters. "Different guys going through different things. Can't use it as an excuse. Just keep going. I'll be fine."
During the regular season, Iguodala averaged just 23.2 minutes per game.
His playing time jumped up to 30.2 minutes per night through the Warriors' first 14 playoff games.
He tweaked his left calf in Game 3 of the Western Conference finals against the Blazers and did not play in Game 4.
