Warriors’ Andre Iguodala (hip) ruled out vs. Kings on Sunday
In spite of beginning the 2021-22 season with a 2-0 record, the Golden State Warriors have actually lacked 3 crucial pieces due to injury. Klay Thompson (Achilles and ACL), Jonathan Kuminga (patellar tendon) and James Wiseman (meniscus) have each missed out on the start of the season.
For the 3rd video game on the schedule, the Warriors will lack veteran forward Andre Iguodala due to left hip pain. Throughout the 2nd half of Golden State’s 115-113 win over the Los Angeles Clippers, Iguodala slipped on a damp area on the flooring at Chase Center.
Via @anthonyVslater on Twitter:
Through two games, the 37-year-old swingman is averaging eight points on 66.7% shooting from the floor with 3.5 rebounds and 2.5 assists per contest. Iguodala has been one of Steve Kerr’s first options off the bench in the opening two games.
With Iguodala out, players like Otto Porter Jr. and Moses Moody could be in line for an increased role in Golden State’s 2nd unit. Porter Jr. hasn’t notched over 20 minutes off the bench yet this season. Moody has actually yet to play over six minutes in a game for the Warriors.
Nemanja Bjelica, Juan Toscano-Anderson and Damion Lee will also likely be heavily involved in Golden State’s second unit on Sunday against the Kings.
The Warriors will meet the Kings at Sacramento’s Golden 1 Center on Sunday at 6 p.m.
