Andre Iguodala (knee bruise) will sit out Game 1 of the NBA Finals against the Cavs on Thursday.
Iguodala has made progress according to the Warriors' report, but the pain and inflammation of the nerve surrounding his left knee is persisting. The point-forward will be re-evaluated before Game 2 on Saturday to determine his status. If the series goes as Vegas is predicting then Iggy may not heal in time to see the floor in at all in the NBA Finals this year. The veteran himself stated that he "is not far away from returning" and doesn't have "too much doubt" about not playing in the Finals for what it's worth. Jordan Bell and Kevon Looney will split Iggy's minutes in Game 1 and possibly beyond.
