Warriors forward Andre Iguodala underwent surgery on Monday to stabilize his fractured left wrist, the team’s PR department tweets. Iguodala will be reevaluated in four weeks, the team adds.
Iguodala suffered the injury on March 13 against Phoenix. The 39-year-old seriously contemplated retirement before the 2022/23 season began, but was convinced to come back for one more year with the Warriors. However, he has made just eight appearances this season, averaging 2.1 PPG, 2.1 RPG and 2.4 APG in 14.1 MPG.
It’s unclear if this will mark the end of the 19-year veteran’s career. He could conceivably return during the postseason if the Warriors make an extended run.
With Iguodala out and Andrew Wiggins away from the team due to personal issues, the Warriors promoted former two-way player Anthony Lamb on Friday to fill the 15th spot on their roster.

You are pretty redundant. You need a new shtick.
Huh? It’s typical to have surgery on a broken wrist. What’s your problem?
Since you don’t know which wrists bones were broken, it is hard to know what is the appropriate course of treatment is. In fact, the most common wrist fracture doesn’t require surgery. So, it is not typical.
Don’t you dare question my medical knowledge I am a top 3 commenter on this website.
We can’t do nothing without wiggs!!!
Iggy just needs to retire now. No way he would even play in a CF.
So those 4 rings are good enough for Klay to brag about (even though curry and Durant basically did the work for him), but you’re ready to drop Iggy for what, a shot at the play in? Some bandwagon fan you are. Incredibly disrespectful.
He didn’t play much or contribute much in last year’s Playoffs.
The bigger Question is if they Waive him, is there a player out there that could contribute and get Minutes in a Playoff series? ( Kent Bazemore ? )
Would a new player even be Eligible if Teams signed them now?
Iggy played in only 7 Playoff games last year, averaged 8.7 minutes, and 1.6 points.
Will he even match that if he returns in 4 Weeks?
Will the Warriors still be playing 4 weeks from?
I’ve been sayin drop iggy and make him a coach like they did barbosa… open the spot for someone who deserves it… TY JEROME!!! Once his 2 way expires they have to drop someone in order to keep him in the playoffs. Ty was running that 2nd string better than flip flop Poole… does he still lead the league in turnovers? Warrior fan since 92…
He needs to be cut IMO, Ty Jerome can do more to help the team right now than Iggy can. Tell Iggy to retire, but pay him to be on the coaching staff.
My prediction: this is Kerr’s last season and Ig become head coach next season
No need to waive Iggy
Ryan Rollins is also out for the year
Waive Rollins (eat his 2024 guarantee), keep him in the organization by signing him to two-way, promote Ty Jerome
That Rollins was even on a guaranteed contract while Jerome was fighting for an NBA job this offseason was laughable.
Yes you’re eating tax money. It’s also way better than the PR hit of waiving Iggy.
Huh? What are you talking about? Jerome has bounced around the league. Why give him a guaranteed contract? What is so terrible about Rollins? The NBA isn’t a video game.
Nobody said Rollins is terrible but as a second round pick there was no need to give him a guaranteed contract instead of a 2-way contract like most second round picks get. The Warriors gave a roster spot to him that desperately needed to be filled with an actual contributing player (thanks to their foolish decision to carry 5 mostly unplayable young guys on the roster as well as leaving one roster spot open).
When you waive a player, you cut ties with them. So, why do you want to cut ties with Rollins? Ty Jerome had not exactly made a case for himself getting a guaranteed contract with his 2 previous teams. Why should the Warriors have given him one? Do you really know how young players are going to develop at the start of a season
@Giants – I’m not the one who advocated waiving Rollins rn. I would waive Iguoadala – in part because I don’t think this Warriors team can get out of the first round of the playoffs with or without an effective Iguoadala. Yes, we don’t know how young players will develop at the start of the season and that is exactly why you don’t start the season with just 8 veteran players (2 of whom had not played with the Warriors before).
