Andre Iguodala (left leg) is listed as questionable for Game 6 against Houston on Saturday.

Iggy's already missed the last two games and could potentially miss Game 6 as well, which is not good news for Golden State. The Warriors play better with him, especially against the Rockets. If he does miss Game 6, expect Kevon Looney to remain in the starting role. We'll know more tomorrow as game-time approaches.

Steve Kerr says Andre Iguodala is improving "incrementally" but that his availability for Game 6 is still unknown.

The Warriors now have their backs against the wall and are clearly hurting from not having Iggy in the lineup. On the season the Warriors are 0-4 against the Rockets without him in the lineup versus a 3-1 record with him.

Kevin Durant scored 29 points with four rebounds, one block and three 3-pointers in 40 minutes during a 98-94 loss to the Rockets in Game 5 on Thursday.

Again, the passing wasn't there with 18 dimes tonight and 14 in Game 4 -- they averaged 29.3 per game in the regular season. Coach Steve Kerr was getting on his guys to cut and Kerr said after the game that his offense was better today than Tuesday. Kerr also told KD to "trust these guys" during a timeout, but afterwards said throwing the ball to KD is a good option. Isolation ball has been a big part of the GS struggles, and KD was really struggling to get good shots late. Besides that, turnovers were costly with 16, including a team-high six from Draymond Green. This is hardly the Warriors team we saw in the playoffs last year.

Stephen Curry scored 22 points with seven rebounds, six assists, four steals and two 3-pointers in 41 minutes against the Rockets in a Game 5 loss.

It took eight minutes of game action for Curry to get his first shot from the field, which just can't happen. The Warriors still can't get back to their bread-and-butter offense with Steph at the helm and their passes doing the work, and all the credit goes to the Rockets. Maybe that'll change in Game 6 on Saturday.
May 24 - 11:42 PM

Kevon Looney scored four points with three rebounds, two assists and one steal in 22 minutes in a start against the Rockets on Thursday.

Coach Steve Kerr really mixed up his rotation with David West and Quinn Cook entering, and Nick Young moving out of the rotation until very late. Looney's usage rate was 0.0 in the first half, and the Rockets seem to know that the non-stars won't be shooting. Looney played much better in the second half, but he could be moving to the bench on Saturday, especially if Andre Iguodala returns. The Warriors miss Iggy big time.
May 24 - 11:39 PM

Klay Thompson scored 23 points with four rebounds, one assist and four 3-pointers in 43 minutes against the Rockets in a Game 5 loss on Thursday.

He was off in the first with just seven points, but Thompson was defending well and looked healthy. He was doing a little more offensively than usual, and that may have to continue because of how the Rockets seem to have figured out the GSW offense.
May 24 - 11:36 PM

Stephen Curry, Klay Thompson, Kevin Durant, Draymond Green and Kevon Looney will start again for Thursday's Game 5.

Coach Steve Kerr doesn't hit the panic button and will roll with this unit again. It did not work out for the Warriors in Game 4 and burned them in the fourth, but Looney is the most familiar among the available players with the four All-Stars with his 40 minutes in that five-man unit during this series. Kerr did hint he'll tweak his rotation, so we could see more Jordan Bell or even Quinn Cook over Nick Young.
May 24 - 8:41 PM

Klay Thompson (knee) will play against the Rockets on Thursday.

No surprise here after coach Steve Kerr said Klay was moving around well on Wednesday. Thompson did also play through his knee injury on Tuesday and there was never really much concern he'd even be limited, especially considering Klay's durability. He'll likely have to play a ton of minutes with Andre Iguodala (leg) out for this one.
May 24 - 7:35 PM

Andre Iguodala (leg) has been ruled out for Game 5 against the Rockets on Thursday.

He gets ruled out before warmups, which is potentially bad news for Game 6, as well. The Warriors are really short on wings and they may have to roll with Shaun Livingston and Nick Young to help more. Plus, we'll almost certainly see Jordan Bell, who may get 20 minutes. Kevon Looney figures to start and get minutes in the 20s, but coach Steve Kerr could change that.
May 24 - 7:33 PM

According to Chris Haynes of ESPN.com, a few Warriors players "didn't sound optimistic" on Andre Iguodala (leg) playing on Thursday.

This report is about as credible as it gets, but Iguodala is still going to be a game-time call and maybe this changes after warmups. Coach Steve Kerr said Iguodala did improve on Wednesday, and Iggy did get shots up at shootaround today. If he isn't a go, that means Jordan Bell would likely have to play more minutes again while Nick Young could help. It's possible Kevon Looney doesn't make another start, but he should still get decent run.
May 24 - 7:21 PM

Andre Iguodala was seen shooting around but is still a game-time decision for Game 5 in Houston on Thursday.

When asked about Iggy's status Steve Kerr said, "Incremental progress. Still a game-time decision." Iguodala was out for Game 4 and it clearly had an impact on the Warriors as they lost their first home game since the 2016 NBA Finals. It'll be a tough test to go without him on the road if he's sidelined for Game 5.
May 24 - 1:45 PM

When asked about Klay Thompson's (left knee strain) status for Game 5 on Thursday Steve Kerr said, "I believe Klay will play."

After injuring his knee in Game 4 on Tuesday, Klay was able to return to the game but was listed as questionable for Game 5. Kerr believes he'll play which is huge news for the Warriors as they head on the road for a pivotal game in Houston.
May 24 - 1:31 PM

Klay Thompson (left knee strain) is officially listed as questionable for Game 5 on Thursday, but head coach Steve Kerr says he thinks Klay's "going to be fine."

Klay did return to Game 4 after injuring his knee and Steve Kerr also said he's "moving around really well." It looks unlikely, but if he were to miss Game 5 it could be a series-changing blow to the Warriors. We'll have a better idea of his status after shootaround on Thursday.
May 23 - 9:33 PM

Andre Iguodala (left lateral leg contusion) is questionable for Game 5 on Thursday.

Iguodala was ruled out for Game 4 after shooting around during warmups, but was "feeling better" on Thursday. "He's out on the floor [on Thursday] not doing a whole lot, but making progress," Steve Kerr said. Iguodala could once again be a game-time decision -- if he's ruled out, Kevon Looney should draw another start in a bigger lineup.
May 23 - 7:40 PM

Klay Thompson (left knee strain) and Andre Iguodala (left leg bruise) are questionable for Game 5 on Thursday.

It's unclear whether either player participated in Wednesday's practice in Houston. We should have a better idea of their availability after shootaround on Thursday. If either player can't go, expect to see more minutes for Kevon Looney, Shaun Livingston and Nick Young.
