The Golden State Warriors will be without former NBA Finals MVP Andre Iguodala for their Game 4 matchup against the Houston Rockets in the Western Conference Finals Tuesday evening.
The team made that official a couple hours before things get started in Oakland.
Injury update: Andre Iguodala (left lateral leg contusion) is out for tonight's Game 4 vs. Houston.

Given that Iggy just recently joined the starting lineup, this is some rather worrisome news for Golden State. The veteran is averaging 7.9 points, 4.9 rebounds and 3.1 assists per game in the playoffs. He’s also among the top wing defenders in the NBA.
Golden State looks to take a commanding 3-1 series lead with a win Tuesday evening. This comes after the team handed Houston a playoff franchise record 41-point loss in Game 3.
With Iguodala out of action we can expect to see more Kevon Looney and Nick Young on the court Tuesday evening at Oracle.
