Iguodala has missed the last 12 games and the Warriors have gone just 5-7 in that span. At 13-12, Golden State is just one loss away from .500 and would miss the playoffs if the season ended today.
Iguodala, a former All-Star, is a key cog that makes this high-powered offense run. He plays as a secondary ball-handler and accounts for a majority of the team's playmaking duties. He also is responsible for guarding the best wing player on opposing teams, as he is known as a stout, versatile defender.
Getting him back in that lineup is a huge step for the Warriors moving forward.
