Iguodala 'hopeful' to play vs. Cavaliers

Sixers forward Andre Iguodala says he is "hopeful" that he can return to the lineup for Tuesday night's home game against Cleveland.

Iguodala missed his first game of the season Sunday when he sat out with patellar tendinitis in his left knee. He told reporters that he has been playing with tendinitis for "about a month."

The decision for him to sit was made shortly before the game, although Iguodala said he was "prepared to play."

He missed 15 games last season with tendinitis in his other knee and a strained Achilles'.
