On a night during which several great players went down with injuries, Andre Iguodala followed the trend. The Stephen Curry-less Golden State Warriors fell to the Los Angeles Lakers on Friday night, but the most concerning point of the game was Iggy’s injury.
Iguodala was chasing after a loose ball when he seemingly pulled his hamstring and was forced to leave the game. Iguodala, who rarely gets hurt, admitted he was a little worried.
“It worries me a little bit,” Igoudala said. “We’ll take it serious. I’m sure I’ll be back really soon. My body has been pretty good to me so far. It’ll be sooner than everyone thinks.”
“[I'm] not even walking right now,” Iguodala said. “We’re going to have an MRI in the morning.”
“I knew it was something,” Iguodala said. “Normally I can just run it off, or it will go away. But once I heard it pop, I knew it was serious.
Well, that doesn’t sound particularly encouraging. The best case scenario for Iguodala would probably be a strained hamstring at this point, but it’s pointless to speculate until he has had his MRI.
With Curry sitting a couple of games out with a mild concussion, Iguodala took on the role of the primary ball-handler. If both players should miss more time, it would leave the Warriors without a true playmaker.
