Andre Iguodala's Status for Game 2 Up in the Air

OAKLAND -- Amid the feverish debate related to the tender left ankle of Spurs star Kawhi Leonard, the Warriors have there own injury concern, specifically the left knee of Andre Iguodala.

After being held out of the second half of Game 1 of the Western Conference Finals against San Antonio on Sunday, the veteran forward did not participate in a light practice Monday and is awaiting results from an MRI test.

Though Iguodala is listed as questionable for Game 2, scheduled for Tuesday night at Oracle Arena, the Warriors privately concede the need for a contingency.

Among those most likely to be affected if Iguodala is absent are Shaun Livingston -- who played the entire fourth quarter in Game 1 -- Matt Barnes, Pat McCaw and Ian Clark.

Head coach Steve Kerr -- who was with the team for the fourth straight day -- will meet with acting head coach Mike Brown and the rest of the staff to devise a plan.

"Steve gives everybody an opportunity," Brown said. "He feels comfortable with whoever is on the floor. It could be Matt. It could be Ian playing more. We're talking about Pat McCaw, who started for us in the past, when (Kevin Durant) was out."
