Warriors guard Andre Iguodala tweaked his back during Game 6 of the NBA Finals against the Cavaliers.

Early in the game, Iguodala had his back worked on during a timeout, and was forced to leave the game for a short period. He returned, but was seen hobbling on the floor. Still, he remained in the contest.

Iguodala, the reigning Finals MVP, has averaged 9.3 points, 4.2 rebounds and 3.8 assists in 31.8 minutes during this year’s postseason.

Golden State reverted back to its big lineup and used center Festus Ezeli in Iguodala’s short absence. He’s one of the key components to the team’s "Death Lineup."
