The Golden State Warriors are facing the Miami Heat tonight at Oracle Arena in what will likely be Dwyane Wade’s last game in Oakland.

Unfortunately, Warriors veteran Andre Iguodala will miss out on Wade’s last game as he will be out due to a tweaked hamstring, as head coach Steve Kerr described to reporters before the game.

With Iguodala out, Connor Letourneau of the S.F. Chronicle reported this afternoon that Kerr could be using a host of other reserves to fill his minutes.

With Iguodala out Sunday, Alfonzo McKinnie, Jonas Jerebko and Marcus Derrickson will be in line for more playing time. Rookie Jacob Evans III (left pelvic soreness) — fresh off being recalled from the G League — has been ruled out with left pelvic soreness.

Let’s hope for a speedy recovery for Iguodala, but as usual in this 82-game marathon, I’m way more concerned with having everybody healthy for the postseason so there’s no rush on this one.
