Iguodala (rest) contributed eight points (2-2 FG, 1-1 3Pt, 3-6 FT), four rebounds, and four assists in 23 minutes during the Warriors' 116-95 win over the Knicks on Sunday. Iguodala typically plays anywhere between 20 and 30 minutes, with his season average leaning closer to the latter. He received the night off against his former 76ers team on Saturday, but re-joined the lineup on Sunday. Iguodala's troubles at the free-throw line are well-documented, and it's surprising more teams don't opt to hack him on purpose in an attempt to get the Warriors' offense out of rhythm. Nevertheless, his well-rounded nature and penchant to play point-forward makes him a fairly valuable commodity in deep category leagues.
Iguodala will return for Sunday's game at New York, Rusty Simmons of the San Francisco Chronicle reports. Held out of Saturday's thrilling last-second victory in Philadelphia, Iguodala will be available in the second game of the Warriors' current back-to-back set. Expect him to assume his usual bench gig, which translates to 27 minutes per contest.
Iguodala (rest) will not play Saturday against Philadelphia. The Warriors announced that Iguodala would not play Saturday very shortly before tip-off against the 76ers. Leandro Barbosa and Brandon Rush figure to see more minutes in his absence Saturday and Iguodala's next chance to play will come Sunday against the Knicks.
Iguodala recorded 20 points (7-8 FG, 4-5 3Pt, 2-2 FT), five assists, and three rebounds in 24 minutes during the Warriors' 132-98 win against the Cavaliers on Monday. Iguodala was simply on fire during Monday's Finals rematch versus the Cavaliers. Over the last five games, Iguodala is contributing 6.6 points, 4.6 rebounds, three assists, one steal, one three and 0.6 blocks in 26 minutes per night. His role off the bench limits his fantasy value to deeper leagues, but Iguodala's defense is irreplaceable--and he really is a jack of all trades.
Iguodala will play on Wednesday night against the Nuggets, Chris Dempsey of the Denver Post reports. Interim coach Luke Walton confirmed that Iguodala will take the court on Wednesday after speculation that he could sit out the night in order to rest. He has played in all 38 matchups this season for the Warriors, averaging 28 minutes a game off the bench, so a rest day may be coming in the near future for the 31-year-old.
