Iguodala missed Game 4 due to left knee soreness after banging knees with James Harden in the second half of Game 3. After Wednesday's (Thursday, PHL time) practice, Steve Kerr said Iguodala was feeling better and making progress.

Kerr was much more optimistic about Thompson: "Klay is moving around really well. I think Klay is going to fine."
We should have a better idea of their availability after shootaround on Thursday (Friday, PHL time).
