Iguodala hasn’t played since Game 3 of the best-of-seven matchup with the Houston Rockets. Golden State coach Steve Kerr said the injury came down to “the individual, just how he’s feeling.”

Iguodala’s status for any potential NBA Finals games against the Cleveland Cavaliers remains uncertain.

The club had termed Iguodala as questionable for Game 6 after the veteran had missed Games 4 and 5.

The Rockets are also expecting to be shorthanded without injured point guard Chris Paul, whose status for Game 7 is up in the air due to a hamstring strain suffered late in the Rockets’ Game 5 win Thursday.

Iguodala is averaging 7.9 points on 47.9-percent shooting to go with 4.9 rebounds per game this postseason. The Warriors have lost two of the three games he’s missed, starting Kevon Looney in his place.

The Warriors got Patrick McCaw back Saturday night. McCaw, who hadn’t seen action since suffering a serious spinal injury on March 31, scored two points in four minutes late in the fourth quarter. He was listed as out for the game by the Warriors on Friday.
