Andre Iguodala misses practice, but Kerr says he'll be 'good to go' for Game 7
Andre Iguodala played through stiffness in his back in Game 6 of the NBA Finals, but the injury obviously affected his performance. Last year's Finals MVP was limited to 30 minutes and scored only five points while watching Cleveland's LeBron James torch Golden State for 41 points in a second consecutive contest.
Warriors head coach Steve Kerr told reporters on Saturday that Iguodala missed practice but that he fully expects Iguodala to be ready for Sunday's Game 7.
"We had a film session and a walkthrough," Kerr said. "And once we were finished with our walkthrough, he went and got treatment. And we had a light practice that he did not take part in. He got treatment instead. And he should be good to go tomorrow. He's feeling pretty well. Hopefully another 24 hours and he'll be even better."

Golden State is already without center Andrew Bogut, who was ruled out for the remainder of the series after suffering a knee injury in Game 5. The Cavaliers have won two straight after falling behind 3-1 to open the series.
"It's Game 7, and he's Andre Iguodala, so we know he'll be out there," Kerr said.
