OAKLAND – The Warriors are getting healthy and their timing could not be better.
The two most recently sidelined players, center Andrew Bogut and forward Andre Iguodala, are available Tuesday night when the Warriors face the Timberwolves at Oracle Arena.
With five games remaining in the regular season, and the playoffs getting underway the weekend of April 16-17, things are falling in line for the Warriors and coach Steve Kerr.
“You want to get a few games with everybody available, get your rotations down and some rhythm for the guys that are out,” he said during his pregame news conference. “Hopefully it all comes together so that we get that accomplished.”
Bogut missed one game after taking a blow to the ribs last Friday against the Celtics. He was held out of the game Sunday as much to get a rest night as to aid healing, Kerr said.
Iguodala sustained a sprained ankle on March 11 and missed 13 games. He was upgraded to questionable on Monday and declared available shortly before tipoff Tuesday night.
With Bogut and Iguodala back, reserve guard Ian Clark was a healthy inactive, joining rookie forward Kevon Looney (hip inflammation) on the single-game inactive list.
