Draymond Green and Andre Iguodala questionable vs. the Jazz

Golden State may be without two of their top defenders against Utah.

NBA: Golden State Warriors at Minnesota Timberwolves Jesse Johnson-USA TODAY Sports

Draymond Green and Andre Iguodala are both listed as questionable for Tuesday’s game between the Golden State Warriors and the Utah Jazz. The former is dealing with a right knee contusion, while the latter is suffering from left hamstring tightness.

The Warriors would obviously be hurt by the loss of either player, as they are arguably Golden State’s two best defensive players. But the loss may be even worse from a narrative standpoint. Green and Iguodala were the two Warriors players who trolled Jazz center Rudy Gobert when he got emotional following his All-Star Game snub. Not having them around for Gobert’s potential revenge game would be a bummer for basketball fans.

While the two former All-Stars are both listed as questionable, they also both got shots up at Tuesday morning’s shootaround, so there’s still a good chance they could play. Both players have been hampered by injuries this season, with Iguodala missing six games and Green missing 15.

The Warriors and Jazz tip off at 7:30 p.m. PT on TNT, at Oracle Arena in Oakland.
