Richard Mackson-USA TODAY Sports

Iguodala had never suffered a major injury in his 10-year career before Friday.

An MRI revealed Golden State Warriors guard Andre Iguodala strained his left hamstring in Friday's loss against the Los Angeles Lakersaccording to the team. Iguodala is out indefinitely and will miss at least Saturday's game against the Blazers.

The injury will not require surgery, according to Sam Amick of USA Today.

Iguodala was hurt late in the third quarter of Golden State's 102-95 loss to the Lakers, a game which Stephen Curry sat out with a mild concussion.

Iguodala has never missed more than 15 games in a season, and he's played in every team game in five of his nine full seasons in the NBA. After signing with Golden State in the offseason as a free agent, Iguodala is shooting at a career-high pace in both field-goal percentage (54.5 percent) and three-point percentage (47.9 percent). Iguodala's deal with the Warriors is worth $48 million over four years, according to Spotrac.

After Friday's game, Iguodala told reporters he knew the injury was serious when he felt a pop in his left hamstring, and he could not walk on his left leg after limping to the locker room.
