OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) - Golden State forward Andre Iguodala will be out for Game 1 of the NBA Finals on Thursday night as he recovers from a bone bruise in his left knee that cost him the final four games of the Western Conference finals.
The Warriors said Iguodala, who was injured in Game 3 against the Rockets on May 20, was evaluated Tuesday and is making progress but still has the bruise and inflammation of the nerve surrounding his knee. Coach Steve Kerr has said Iguodala wouldn't play until he can run without pain. He will be re-evaluated ahead of Sunday's Game 2.
ABC10 is your home for the NBA Finals. Live coverage of Game 1 begins at 5:30 p.m., with a special edition of 10News immediately after the game.
Cleveland's Kevin Love remains in the concussion protocol and may not be ready for Game 1.
The Cavs’ All-Star big man was injured after colliding with Celtics forward Jayson Tatum in Game 6 of the Eastern Conference finals. Love went on to miss Game 7, being replaced by Jeff Green in the starting lineup.
Love missed the 2015 NBA Finals against Golden State with a shoulder injury.
