Just about an hour before last night's game at Golden State, Sixers swingman Andre Iguodala informed coach Doug Collins that he wasn't going to be able to play.

Collins said Iguodala "had sore legs", then went on to say that Iguodala was sore after the team practiced on Saturday in Denver. He played 40 minutes in the team's win over the Nuggets on Sunday then was getting treated yesterday. But after warming up for a while, Iguodala shut it down.

Iguodala missed five games earlier this season with a strained right Achilles' tendon. It appears that his current injury is probably related to that, as Collins said he was "having trouble pushing off."

Collins also said he hopes the injury is day-to-day and that the team will get Iguodala back for their game in Phoenix on Wednesday.
