The 76ers will be without swingman Andre Iguodala for tonight's game against the Golden State Warriors. During Doug Collins' pre-game availability, he said that Iguodala came up to him and told him he wouldn't be able to go. The injury appears to be a flare-up of the right Achilles tendinitis that forced Iguodala to miss a handful of games earlier this season.
Collins couldn't pinpoint exactly when the injury was aggravated, but said that Iguodala had been sore during last night's 95-89 victory over the Denver Nuggets.
“He just said he couldn’t push off of it,” Collins said. “He was sore [on Sunday] and he’s been treated and he just came up to me and said he wasn’t going to be able to go ... He was having some problems with his legs and that’s why it was so important for us to win that game with him playing. And hopefully it will be day-to-day with him."
Collins seemed hopeful that Iguodala would be back for Wednesday night's game at the Phoenix Suns. In Iguodala's absence, Collins will start a lineup of Jrue Holiday, Jodie Meeks, Andres Nocioni, Elton Brand, and Spencer Hawes. Also injured for tonight's game is forward Jason Kapono, who strained a calf during Saturday's practice in Denver.
