Mar 16, 2023

Andre Iguodala will undergo surgery subsequent week for a fractured left wrist sustained in the Warriors’ win more than the Phoenix Suns on Monday evening, the group announced Wednesday.

The Warriors will give an update on Iguodala’s status at a later date.

It seems as although Iguodala suffered the injury on this play in the third quarter against the Suns.

Iguodala has played in eight games all season and had appeared in the preceding 5 Warriors games. Following re-signing more than the summer time, the 39-year-old missed the very first 39 games of the season as he worked his way into game-shape.

He then played in 3 straight games just before sustaining a hip injury that kept him out for 22 straight games.

But the entire cause the Warriors and Iguodala reunited for one more season was to have him prepared for the NBA playoffs, and the strategy looked like it was operating out flawlessly as he had played nicely more than the final couple of games, albeit in a restricted function.

In eight games off the bench this season, Iguodala averaged two.1 points, two.four assists and two.1 rebounds in 14.1 minutes.

Now it really is unclear if Iguodala will be capable to play once again in the course of the typical season or when he may be prepared for a possible Warriors playoff run.

If Iguodala is unable to return at any point, it most likely brings to an finish of a decorated 19-year NBA profession for the 2004 very first-round draft choose. Following producing a single NBA All-Star group even though with the Philadelphia 76ers, he joined the Warriors are a a single-year stint in Denver and helped Golden State win 4 championships. In 2015, he was the distinction against the Cleveland Cavaliers and took him NBA Finals MVP, the greatest star on his resume.

Unable to play for the foreseeable future, Iguodala will return to his mentor function for some of the young players after he’s cleared to rejoin the group following his surgery.
