Prior to the announcement, Warriors head coach said during his pregame press conference that Iguodala was "going to test it out on the court....As soon as he's done with his warmup and Chelsea [Lane] tells me, we'll announce whether he's good to go or not."
Iguodala has missed the previous six Warriors postseason games. In Game 3 of the Western Conference Finals, the last time he saw action, he logged 27 minutes and produced 10 points, three rebounds, three assists, a block, and three steals.
During that game, Iguodala collided with Rockets guard James Harden late, resulting in a "left lateral leg contusion/bone bruise."
Iguodala was named Finals MVP in 2015, the first of four straight Finals match-ups between his Golden State Warriors and the Cleveland Cavaliers.
It was not made disclosed if Iguodala would come off the bench or be re-inserted in the starting five.
