BREAKING: Warriors could be very shorthanded vs Jazz tonight

Golden State Warriors forwards Draymond Green and Andre Iguodala are questionable to play against the Utah Jazz, according to ESPN’s Nick Friedell.

Green is nursing a right knee contusion while Iguodala has suffered from left hamstring tightness coming into Tuesday night’s Western Conference tilt.

Both players were seen getting up shots as usual, according to Mark Medina of the San Jose Mercury News — a sign that the “questionable” tag could be only precautionary in case of any setbacks.

Iguodala missed Sunday’s game against the Miami Heat, while Green tied a season-high with 14 assists to bring the Warriors’ win streak to four, now having gone 15-2 since the start of the calendar year.

Both players could prove instrumental as a perimeter stopper of Iguodala’s caliber could do wonders against a young Donovan Mitchell, while Draymond Green is still the engine at both ends, serving as the quarterback on offense, as well as the last line of defense.

The Warriors have faltered in their last two games, getting too close for comfort against the Phoenix Suns and the Heat, as their new starting lineup logged a decadent minus-37 plus-minus through those two games, bringing their first 100 minutes together to a shocking minus-four.

Iguodala has been a key component for Golden State still managing to win during these last few games in which the starters haven’t clicked as expected, and could be vital to have him in the last two games before the All-Star break hits.
