It’s good news for the Warriors, who still expect the 2015 NBA Finals MVP to suit up for Game 5.

The Golden State Warriors caught an injury break, as it has been determined that Andre Iguodala has no structural damage in his knee.

Iguodala hyperextended his knee in the closing seconds of Monday’s Game 4 loss to the Houston Rockets, but coach Steve Kerr still listed the 2015 NBA Finals MVP as probable on Tuesday. As of Wednesday morning, Iguodala is still expected to play.

“I’m told there’s no structural damage in that injured knee,” NBA insider Shams Charania reported. “And the expectation is that he’ll be able to play in Game 5.”

Of course, just because Iguodala plays doesn’t mean he’ll be at full strength. The veteran wing could be a little limited, which would be a huge blow to the Warriors. So far in this series, Iguodala is averaging 13.3 points, 5.5 rebounds, 3.0 assists, and 1.3 blocks per game, while shooting 61.8% from the field and 46.7% from three-point range.

Game 5 is tonight at 7:30 p.m. PT on TNT.
