Warriors' Iguodala to miss game six against Rockets
Golden State Warriors guard Andre Iguodala will not face the Houston Rockets in Saturday's game six due to injury, the reigning NBA champions announced.
It will be the third consecutive game Iguodala has missed after injuring his leg earlier in the Western Conference finals series, which the Rockets lead 3-2.
Iguodala injured his left leg in game three when he collided with Rockets star James Harden on a drive midway through the fourth quarter.
The 2015 NBA Finals MVP has averaged 7.9 points and 4.9 rebounds in 13 playoff games. He averaged six points and 3.8 rebounds per game in the regular season.

Warriors forward Kevon Looney's minutes have increased in Iguodala's absence. Center Jordan Bell has also played more off the bench.
The Rockets, meanwhile, will be without Chris Paul because of a hamstring problem.
