OAKLAND -– Warriors forward Andre Iguodala, who has missed three of the last four games and was listed as questionable for the game against Utah Wednesday night, was declared available 90 minutes before tipoff.
“He felt good at shootaround, and I would say he’s probable,” coach Steve Kerr had said in his pregame news conference.
“But we’re going to wait and see how everything goes when he comes in and warms up and he’ll let us know how he’s feeling.”
Iguodala shortly thereafter completed pregame warmups and his tender left hamstring felt good enough to play.
Iguodala originally strained the hamstring in the Feb. 27 win at Oklahoma City. He has played only once since then, a total of 14 minutes last Thursday in a rematch with the Thunder.
In other Warriors health news, backup center Festus Ezeli, who underwent arthroscopic surgery on his left knee on Feb. 8, went through pregame drills on the court at Oracle Arena.
“He’s making good progress,” Kerr said. “He’s been on the court the last couple days, starting to move around and do some shooting and stuff. We’re still a couple weeks away from the original target date to reevaluate. We’ll know more then, but he’s definitely on track to come back.”
Ezeli is scheduled to be reexamined on March 21.
