News: Iguodala revealed Monday that he received healing injections in both knees while in Germany during the offseason, the San Francisco Chronicle reports.
Impact: Iguodala has been bothered by nagging knee ailments over the last few seasons, but he said Monday that both knees feel "really good" heading into camp. "I've been dunking a lot lately, which I normally don't do in the offseason," Iguodala added. With Harrison Barnes set for a slightly larger role this season, Iguodala, the 2015 Finals MVP, could see a reduction in playing time. However, coach Steve Kerr has remained adamant that he doesn't want to change much after last season's championship run.

News: Iguodala will come off the Warriors' bench in 2015-16, the San Jose Mercury News reports. Coach Steve Kerr said, "I don't anticipate changing anything."
Impact: There's little reason to mess with a recipe for success, especially with negligible turnover aside from the offseason trade of David Lee to Boston. Acting as a reserve for the first time in his career last season, Iguodala's output suffered the expected step back, with modest averages of 7.8 points (on 47 percent shooting), 3.3 rebounds, 3.0 assists, 1.2 steals, and 1.0 three-pointer in 27 minutes.
