Warriors guard Andre Iguodala will miss at least the next two weeks with a sprained left ankle, coach Steve Kerr announced Saturday.
“It’s a really big deal,” Kerr said before facing the Phoenix Suns.
During Friday’s 128–112 win over the Blazers, Iguodala’s foot became trapped under Damian Lillard’s body, causing his ankle to roll. He limped off and did not return, finishing with eight points, two rebounds and two assists in 15 minutes.
"Nobody's going to replace Andre. ... He is one of the smartest players I have ever been around." - Kerr— Marcus Thompson (@ThompsonScribe) March 13, 2016
Iguodala will be re-evaluated in two weeks.
Golden State erased a fourth-quarter deficit to defeat the Suns 123–116 and improve to 59–6.
The Warriors next play Monday night against the New Orleans Pelicans at home.
