Andre Iguodala is probable for Game 5 after knee hyperextension

The Warriors are breathing a sigh of relief after good news on the injury front.

In the waning moments of the Golden State Warriors Game 4 loss to the Houston Rockets, Andre Iguodala hurt his knee. The veteran wing appeared to land on the knee awkwardly, and was clutching it during the ensuing timeout.

The 2015 NBA Finals MVP stayed in and played the final possession of the game, but was noticeably limping after the contest.

Thankfully for the Warriors, it looks like Iguodala will be okay. Coach Steve Kerr said on Tuesday that Iguodala hyperextended his knee, but is probable for Wednesday’s Game 5.

“Andre’s probable for tomorrow,” Kerr told reporters. “Yeah, a little hyperextension, but he should be good to go.”

Kerr also noted that Shaun Livingston is “a little banged up,” and Kevin Durant’s elbow is sore. The coach noted that the team arrived back in Oakland later than usual because they wanted to get treatment for some of their players on Tuesday morning before leaving Houston.

Iguodala being probable is very good news for the Warriors, who struggled against the Rockets in the 2018 Western Conference Finals when a knee injury sidelined the veteran for the final five games of the series.
