Golden State Warriors swingman Andre Iguodala recently got a second opinion on his injured left knee in an attempt to determine the severity of his ailment, according to a report from ESPN.

Iguodala hurt his knee in Game 3 of the Western Conference Finals after banging knees with James Harden. The Warriors are officially labeling the injury as a left lateral leg contusion.

Game 1 of the NBA Finals is Thursday. As of now, Iguodala's status is unknown.

"He's frustrated," Warriors coach Steve Kerr said. "His body has not responded at this point."

Iguodala was asked by reporters after the Warriors defeated the Rockets on Sunday if he's optimistic about playing in the Finals.

"I don't know," Iguodala said. "They say it could go away just like that one day."

Iguodala, the 2015 Finals MVP, is averaging 7.9 points during this postseason in 13 games.
