LOS ANGELES -- The Sixers have upgraded Andre Iguodala to probable for tonight's game against the Clippers.
Following Monday’s 112-107 overtime loss at Utah, it was revealed that Iguodala was suffering from chondromalacia, an irritation of the cartilage below the kneecap.
Both Iguodala and Collins sounded were optimistic about his availability.
"I got a lot of treatment last night," Iguodala said at the shootaround today. "I got a deep tissue massage to get the sweeling out. I'm feeling good."
It is the same injury that has kept Chase Utley out of the Phillies’ lineup throughout spring training. Iguodala doesn’t seem to think he is going to be shelved like Utley.
“It started probably a couple of weeks ago,” Iguodala said after the team had a partial practice at the Lakers’ practice facility in El Segundo yesterday. “It’s normal when you play a lot of games, play a lot of minutes, and you start to get these little nags. I’ve had this once before and I’ve had the tendinitis since college, so it’s just something you deal with when playing a lot of basketball.”
