Golden State Warriors forward Andre Iguodala is set to undergo surgery next week after fracturing his left wrist. Currently, the Warriors have no timetable for Iguodala’s post-surgery return.

Iguodala injured his wrist during the Warriors’ 123-112 victory over the Phoenix Suns on Monday night. This is the latest setback in what has been an injury-ridden season for Iguodala.

Having only made his season debut in January, Iguodala was out for the first 39 games due to a left hip injury. He then played in three games before being forced out of the next 21 games due to right hip soreness.

Currently on a one-year veteran minimum contract with the Warriors, Iguodala’s absence will be heavily felt by the Warriors, head coach Steve Kerr admitted.

Without Iguodala’s availability, the Warriors’ injury crisis continues to worsen. After a three-game absence, Jonathan Kuminga continues to harbor a right ankle sprain while Lester Quinones’ 10-day contract expired, leaving two-way players Ty Jerome and Anthony Lamb ineligible to play.
