The Golden State Warriors are about as healthy as they’ve been all year. Steph Curry is back. Draymond Green is back. Alfonzo McKinnie is back.
And now Andre Iguodala and Shaun Livingston are back. At Monday morning’s shootaround, the team announced that Iguodala and Livingston will both be available for Monday evening’s game against the Memphis Grizzlies.

Iguodala returns after missing three straight games due to hip soreness, running his season total to five missed games. Livingston only missed one game with a bruised pelvis, but has already missed ten games this year.
With the return of the two valuable veterans, the Warriors have the bulk of their core healthy. The only players missing are centers DeMarcus Cousins, who is nearing his Warriors debut, and Damian Jones, who is likely out for the year with a shoulder injury.
Against a quality team like the Grizzlies, the added depth should greatly benefit Golden State. Plus, it allows them to keep rookie Jacob Evans III in the G League, where he can further develop.
