His status for Friday's game against New Orleans is doubtful after nearing a triple-double during Tuesday's outing (nine points, 11 rebounds, 13 assists). Coach Steve Kerr said that Iguodala is open to play on Friday but he won't let him play if he's not yet fully recovered. "We'll see how long that takes". "It was a tough break, he's sprained both ankles in the last week". Green also sat out of Wednesday's practice. He did not return to the game. A former second-round pick out of Michigan State, he averaged 10.2 points, 7.9 rebounds and 1.4 blocks per game in 2016-17 to help the Warriors win their second title in three years. We scored pretty good. Kevin Durant's baseline jumper at the end went in just too late and Golden State squandered a big lead on the night it received its championship rings. Defensively, if we want to get where we want to go, we have to get stops. "When I say we're not in great shape, I can't come in here today and run them because they're exhausted from last night".
