We’re all waiting for Andre Iguodala to return to the Golden State Warriors. But it’s looking like it won’t be in Game 2 of the NBA Finals against the Cleveland Cavaliers.

Coach Steve Kerr updated Iguodala’s condition at Friday’s practice, and it was a mixed bag. On the one hand, Iguodala is improving; on the other hand, he’s still doubtful for Sunday’s Game 2.

Iguodala has been out of action for nearly two weeks, since suffering a knee contusion and bone bruise in Game 3 of the Western Conference Finals against the Houston Rockets. He missed the final four games of the series, as well as Thursday night’s Game 1 of the NBA Finals.

The difficult for both the team and Iguodala has been that no one seems to know exactly what’s going on. Iguodala has expressed frustration at the lack of improvement, and has received a second opinion on the knee.

Whatever is going on, Iguodala’s health is the main concern. The Warriors are still heavily favored against the Cavs even without him, so making sure no long-term injury is sustained is the biggest priority.
