Warriors guard/forward Andre Iguodala left Friday night's game against the Lakers with a hamstring injury. After the game, Iguodala told reporters he "felt a pop," which is traditionally an indication of a tear. 

After leaving the game in the second half, Iguodala went to the locker room for treatment. He did not return. Stephen Curry missed the game with a concussion and backup point guard Toney Douglas is out several weeks with a stress reaction in his leg. Iguodala had been pressed into service of playing point guard. The Warriors essentially don't have a point guard a this point beyond Kent Bazemore

Losing Iguodala for any length of time would be devasating for the Warriors. He's fit in perfectly as a free agent, hitting 60 percent of his shots and helping boost their defense into the top five.
