Andre Iguodala SG/SF GS 11 Hrs
Andre Iguodala (hamstring) said on Thursday that he'll be back "really soon," but he doesn't have a firm return date.
For what it's worth, Warriors beat writer Rusty Simmons speculates that Iguodala is still "at least a week away" from playing. Golden State play on Friday and Sunday, then kick off a three-game week with a matchup vs. the visiting Pelicans on Tuesday.

Andre Iguodala (hamstring) will not play against the Bobcats on Monday.
This is not really news, but the Warriors haven't been declaring Iguodala out for any period of time. He's likely out for the rest of this week since he just started shooting jumpers. Harrison Barnes will continue to start at small forward.

Andre Iguodala (hamstring) will not play against the Grizzlies on Saturday.
He still isn't practicing and and doesn't have a timetable to return to the lineup. Iguodala and the Warriors will travel to Charlotte for Monday's game, but the team is still very unlikely to have their starting small forward for that game.

Andre Iguodala was taking jumpers before Friday's game against the Rockets.
He wasn't really doing much else besides shooting free throws, so this is a step in the right direction. Iguodala still hasn't put in a full practice and is very unlikely for Saturday's game against the Grizzlies. Harrison Barnes will continue to start.

Andre Iguodala (hamstring) was not able to practice on Thursday.
This makes it extremely unlikely that Iguodala will play in Friday's road game, and he's not even guaranteed to travel with the team to Houston. Keep him chained to fantasy benches until we've seen him on the court.

Andre Iguodala (hamstring) will not play on Tuesday night against the Raptors.
The team has yet to decide if he will travel for the upcoming road trip, so he sounds like he'll be in doubt for Friday's game against Houston. Iguodala was shooting free throws at practice on Monday and hasn't been doing much of note to suggest he'll be back soon. Fantasy owners should sit him in weekly leagues this week. Harrison Barnes will continue to get as much work as he can at small forward while Draymond Green has played much better, as well.

Andre Iguodala (strained hamstring) is getting "closer and closer" to returning, according to Mark Jackson, but he doesn't have a definitive return date.
"We'll stay true to the process as usual and look forward to having him back," Jackson said. Iguodala seems unlikely to return for Tuesday's home game, after which the Warriors don't play until Friday's road game at Houston.

Andre Iguodala (hamstring) has been ruled out for the next three games.
The Warriors have three road games in the next four nights against New Orleans, Dallas and Oklahoma City, so it's hardly a surprise Iguodala won't be able to suit up for that game. The soonest he can return would be Sunday against the Kings, which does seem like a stretch considering he could barely walk after suffering the injury on Friday. Harrison Barnes should get most of the minutes at small forward and even logged 45 on Saturday night.

An MRI confirmed Andre Iguodala suffered a strained left hamstring and the team announced he will be out indefinitely.
This diagnosis coincides with the earlier report of Iguodala not needing surgery. The degree of the strain is not known, so there really is no way to predict how long "indefinitely" is going to be. Iguodala owners have to just bite the bullet and keep him stashed. Harrison Barnes should be picked up in all leagues in the meantime and the team could look to Kent Bazemore if they don't have Stephen Curry tonight.

Andre Iguodala (hamstring) doesn't need surgery on his left hamstring, according to Sam Amick of USA Today.
This is good news. Surgery on a hamstring strain is very rare, so this news suggests that he did not suffer a complete tear of the muscle. Iguodala is still very likely to miss some time and there has been no timeline provided by the team just yet. Harrison Barnes shouldn't be sitting on any waiver wires.
