Programming note: Pelicans-Warriors coverage tips off Tuesday at 7 p.m. with Warriors Pregame Live on Comcast SportsNet Bay Area (territorial restrictions apply)
OAKLAND – Warriors forward Andre Iguodala was among the last players to walk off the court after the team's Tuesday morning shoot around, and he looked as if he's ready to rejoin the lineup after a 26-day absence.
That could happen, according to several Warriors sources, as early as Tuesday night's game against New Orleans at Oracle Arena.
"Hopefully, we'll get Andre back tonight," power forward David Lee said after the shootaround.
Though Iguodala was listed as "out" with a strained left hamstring on the team's injury report, coach Mark Jackson said the veteran is "real close" to returning and that he is participating in all team activities.
Barring any setbacks, it appears Iguodala will be available for at least limited minutes against the Pelicans.
The Warriors are 8-3 in games in which Iguodala has been a full participant. They are 5-9 since he hobbled off the court Nov. 22 in Los Angeles.
