Golden State Warriors forward Andre Iguodala has been pain-free over the last few days and plans to return sometime during the NBA Finals,
sources said to ESPN.
On Saturday, Iguodala went through a full personal workout and sprinted for the first time since suffering a bone bruise in his left knee in Game 3 of the Western Conference finals.
VIDEO: Injury update - Andre Iguodala is now 'pain-free'
Iguodala has been out of the play since Game 3 of the Western Conference. He suffered a severe knee injury. According to the Warriors coach Steve Kerr, Iguodala's absence is the only reason that the Western Conference went as long as it did.
Iguodala is an NBA All-Star of 2012 and has been named to the NBA All-Defensive Team twice, so is undoubtedly a valuable asset to the team. Despite his absence, the Warriors has put on a stunner lately, but his absence has been felt in defense.
Iguodala might be of big help to slow down LeBron James, who has averaged 40 points in the first two games of the NBA Finals.
