As if the Warriors weren't dealing with enough injury concerns already, Andre Iguodala limped off the court in Game 1 due to an undisclosed leg injury.

Iguodala is a key contributor for Golden State on both ends of the floor. The veteran swingman can occasionally connect on three-point attempts, but his greatest asset is his ability to defend the perimeter.

With less than two minutes remaining in Game 1, Iguodala landed awkwardly on his right leg. He immediately showed his frustration by shaking his head.

Fortunately for Golden State, head coach Steve Kerr doesn't believe this injury will keep Iguodala out of action. It's important to note that Iguodala's MRI results aren't back yet.

Either way, Kerr is confident he'll have Iguodala in his rotation for a crucial matchup on Sunday.

This is significant news for the Warriors as they're currently dealing with Kevin Durant's calf injury. Kerr revealed that the reigning Finals MVP is officially out for Game 2.

Golden State can't really afford another injury for the rest of this series.

DeMarcus Cousins returning from his quad injury could eventually play a factor, but it's fair to say the Warriors need Iguodala and Durant more against the Raptors.

Game 2 is set to tip off at 8 p.m. ET from Scotiabank Arena.

The Warriors might want to monitor how Iguodala's injury affects his ability to make plays, if he does indeed suit up.
