OAKLAND – As the victories pile up for the Warriors, so too do the aches and pains.
Andre Iguodala is the latest to feel the pinch. The veteran wing is listed as questionable for the game Tuesday night at Oracle Arena against the Atlanta Hawks.
Iguodala, nursing a tight left hamstring, joins point guard Stephen Curry (left ankle soreness) as regulars whose status is uncertain.
Neither Curry nor Iguodala participated in the Tuesday morning shootaround, and their teammates are bracing to move forward without them.

“We’re going to have to do it collectively,” guard Klay Thompson said. “There’s a lot of shots to go around. But we’re going to have to be patient within the offense and move the ball that much more because Steph, we’re so used to him bailing us out on possessions. We’ll have to be that much more efficient and precise and kind of grind out the game.”
Asked how different the team would look if Curry and Iguodala are unable to play, center Andrew Bogut was his usual candid self.

“Well, we’d lose the MVP, so it changes a lot,” he said. “But other guys would have to step up tonight and take that scoring load that we’re missing. You know, 30-odd points a game is not easy to replace.
“It’ll be tough, but we’ll give it our best shot.”
