“He was sore,” Warriors head coach Steve Kerr said after Iguodala played just 17 minutes, 33 seconds in Game 3. “Lower leg, just had some soreness. He’s going to get an MRI tomorrow. We didn’t want to risk anything and put him back in the game. So, when we took him out mid-third, trainer said that’ll be it for him. We’ll know more tomorrow.”
Iguodala initially left the game in the first quarter to be checked out, but he returned to action, before being taken out for good in the third quarter. Kerr was able to give Warriors backup swingman Alfonzo McKinnie some of Iguodala’s minutes, and McKinnie responded by finishing the game with a plus-24 plus/minus.
For his part, Iguodala didn’t seem overly concerned about the injury as he left Moda Center late Saturday night. He was walking a little stiffly but was laughing and joking with friends on his way out of the building.
