Golden State Warriors swingman Andre Iguodala will remain sidelined for Game 6 of the Western Conference Finals against the Houston Rockets.
Warriors head coach Steve Kerr made the announcement prior to the game.

Iguodala missed Games 4 and 5, both Warriors losses, due to a left lateral leg contusion, which came after banging knees with Rockets star James Harden in Game 3.
Golden State enters Game 6 on their home court in an unfamiliar position - trailing 2-3 in a must-win game.
As previously reported, on the other side, the Rockets will be playing minus star point guard Chris Paul, who suffered a strained hamstring late in Houston's Game 5 win.
