Unfortunately, the NBA Finals could also be reduced to an injury debate – with Iguodala and Cavaliers big Kevin Love, who missed Game 7 against the Celtics with a concussion, still ailing.
Golden State Warriors forward Andre Iguodala recently got a second opinion on his injured left knee and is still trying to figure out what’s wrong, league sources told ESPN.
The 6-foot-7 swingman plans to search for a remedy in the coming days, sources said, and his status for Game 1 of the NBA Finals against the Cleveland Cavaliers is unknown.
Kevin Love remains in the NBA’s concussion protocol and his status for Game 1 of the Finals is in question, Cavs coach Tyronn Lue said.
Love isn’t an ideal fit against the Warriors, who can exploit his defensive shortcomings. But he’s Cleveland’s second-best player.
Hopefully, both Iguodala and Love return to the court by Game 1 Thursday – or if not then, sooner than later.
