The Golden State Warriors have been without starting forward Andre Iguodala for both NBA Finals games. It hasn't been much of an issue so far - Golden State leads the series, 2-0 - but the Warriors obviously want their do-it-all forward back.

It looks like that could be happening soon. ESPN issued an update on Iguodala's status earlier this afternoon. It's a promising one.

NBA insider Chris Haynes reports that Iguodala, who's dealing with a leg contusion, has been feeling a lot better in recent days.

A return to the floor could happen soon.

"Golden State forward Andre Iguodala has been pain free the last few days, eyeing a return soon," Haynes reports.

From ESPN.com:

Golden State Warriors forward Andre Iguodala hasn't experienced any pain over the last few days and plans to return for the NBA Finals, league sources tell ESPN.

On Saturday, Iguodala progressed enough to go through a full personal workout and sprinted for the first time since sustaining a bone bruise in his left knee in Game 3 of the conference finals, sources said.

The swingman's status for Game 3 on Wednesday is still unknown, according to sources.

Game 3 is set for Wednesday night. Tipoff is scheduled for 9 p.m. E.T. on ABC.
