Warriors "Hopeful" to Get Andre Iguodala Back on Monday

The Golden State Warriors could get a key veteran back soon.

According to Anthony Slater of The Athletic, the Dubs are "hopeful" veteran forward Andre Iguodala can finally make his long-awaited return to the lineup for Monday's game versus the Memphis Grizzlies.

Iguodala has not appeared in a game since February 7, where he played five minutes against the Oklahoma City Thunder. 

The 2015 Finals MVP has been dealing with a back injury that has limited him to just 26 games this season. He has also not played in 29 of Golden State's last 31 outings. 

Iguodala and the Warriors reunited this past summer after being apart for two seasons. He played 84 total games with the Miami Heat in 2019-20 and 2020-21.

The 37-year old signed a veteran's minimum deal to rejoin Steph Curry, Klay Thompson, and Draymond Green, whom he won three NBA championships with. 

The four look to bring another championship to the Bay Area this season. 

After their game versus Washington on Sunday, the Warriors only have eight games left on their schedule.

Golden State definitely needs every reinforcement it can get, with Curry still sidelined due to a foot injury. 

The Warriors are optimistic the 2-time MVP can return in time for a run at the Larry O'Brien trophy in June.
