Warriors: Draymond Green, Andre Iguodala probable for Tuesday’s game in OKC

OKLAHOMA CITY — If Jordan Poole was in an apocalyptic situation 54 years from now, he’d want his two cats to be by his side to fend off zombies.

If he had to choose one of his current teammates to join him, it’d most likely be Andre Iguodala.

“He would probably come up with random questions to keep us engaged and not lose our sanity,” Poole said Monday after practice. “He definitely keeps us engaged. He’s a pretty wise, mysterious individual. So it would be good company if I was fighting for my life.”

But Iguodala might not even be available for the Warriors’ next game (let alone an apocalyptic crisis).

Iguodala and Draymond Green are listed as probable for the Warriors’ upcoming game against the Oklahoma City Thunder.

Iguodala, 39, is dealing with hip soreness after appearing in his first game Sunday against the Los Angeles Lakers since Jan. 13. Green, 33, has been playing through soreness in his left hand — an injury that required an X-ray during the first quarter of Sunday’s loss.

Iguodala was seen on the court Monday afternoon at optional practice in Oklahoma City. By the time he was finished putting up shots alongside Stephen Curry and Jordan Poole, Iguodala was drenched in sweat, but there’s no word on whether he’ll be good to go for Tuesday’s game.

Green’s status for Tuesday is also up in the air after he spent Monday on the training table receiving treatment.

Green left the first quarter to get an X-ray on his left hand. The scan came back negative and Green eventually returned to the game at the tailend of the opening quarter wearing a large white pad on his injured hand. Green later ditched the support and finished the game with 15 points, nine rebounds and three assists in 31 minutes.

Green brushed off the pain after the Warriors’ loss, saying, “It is what it is.”

“Nobody’s that healthy at this point of the season, so just keep pushing,” Green said.

And that’s what the Warriors will continue to do — with or without their two key veterans.
