Andre Iguodala, Golden State's all-purpose guard who has taken over point guard responsibilities in Stephen Curry's absence, suffered a strained left hamstring and did not return to the Warriors' game against the Lakers. Iguodala said after the game he felt a pop in his hamstring, telling reporters, "That's when I knew it was serious ... I can't even walk right now," per Rusty Simmons of the San Francisco Chronicle.
Iguodala is scoring 13.5 points per game on a career-best 56 percent shooting from the floor while knocking down three-pointers at a nearly 48 percent clip. He's also dishing out 6.3 assists and collecting over four rebounds.
He was brought in to Golden State as a free agent this summer and has played a major role in the Warriors' hot start to the season. There's no word yet on how long his hamstring will keep him sidelined.
The Warriors are already without Curry, who has sat out the last two games with a concussion. Iguodala served as the primary ball-handler without Curry, so it remains to be seen how Golden State remedies its lack of playmaking on the perimeter without its two best creators.
