Warriors provide official injury updates on GP2, Iguodala originally appeared on NBC Sports Bayarea
The Warriors provided updates on the injuries to Gary Payton II and Andre Iguodala on Thursday afternoon.
Payton will be re-evaluated in two weeks after an MRI confirmed a fracture and ligament and muscle damage in his left elbow after a collision with Memphis Grizzlies forward Dillon Brooks in Game 2 of the Western Conference semifinals.

Iguodala, who has missed the past three games due to a disc injury in his neck, will be re-evaluated in one week.
It is relatively good news that both players have a chance to return this postseason, especially Payton after what many initially believed to be a season-ending injury.
The Warriors likely will be without both Payton and Iguodala for the remainder of the Memphis series, two key role players off the bench.
