In the absence of knowing what happens with Chris Paul, whose presence in the seventh game of the Western Conference Finals is still in the air, we already know that Golden State Warriors will not be able to count on Andre Iguodala.
The bad news for the Oakland franchise has been confirmed by his trainer, Steve Kerr, who after the practice of shooting has indicated that his pupil, afflicted with a contusion in his left leg since the third game of the series, will not be able to play tonight against the Rockets.
His absence is a brake on Golden State. Although they have plenty of talent to overcome Houston in ‘Game 7’ – especially if CP3 misses the match – the reality is that at the moment there are three games played without the wing and have only been able to win in one of them, just in which he was forced to absent himself Paul.
Although the Warriors can defend at a high level, the truth is that within that game plan there’s a great positive push to have Iguodala. The 34-year-old player, which during the season we saw him rest on several occasions, maximizes his playoff qualities under the confidence of Kerr, who places him as a starter in search of equipping the team with greater strength under their own rim.
