The Golden State Warriors came into this season expecting to be one of the premier teams in the NBA, but a huge caveat for their success was that they had to stay healthy. With guys like Andrew Bogut, David Lee and Stephen Curry who have had lingering injury issues over the past few seasons, that’s a big question mark for this team.
On Friday night they were already without Curry due to a concussion when new addition Andre Iguodala, who was filling in for Curry at the point, left the game with a leg injury. Here’s video of the play:
Though there’s nothing official, a report from Rusty Simmons of The San Francisco Chronicle doesn’t make people optimistic about the prognosis:
Andre Iguodala said he felt a pop in his left hamstring. “That’s when I knew it was serious. … I can’t even walk right now.”

Any time that you hear the word “pop” and are talking about a leg, it’s normally not a good thing at all. These players are highly aware of how their bodies operate, so for Iggy to say he felt that pop and that he can’t walk, well that’s hardly promising.
We’ll have to wait to see what the MRI reveals, but the injuries could already be starting to mount up for this team, which really is just utterly disappointing because this team is unreal amounts of fun when they’re cooking.
