The Warriors struggled to put away the Rockets in the last round without Iguodala, a former Finals MVP, and head coach Steve Kerr called him a "huge component" of what Golden State tries to do at both ends of the floor.
Iguodala suffered the injury in Game 3 of the Western Conference finals against Houston and missed the final 4 games of the series against the Rockets. He even makes the Warriors better.
The NBA Finals tip off Thursday night, pitting LeBron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers against Steph Curry and the Golden State Warriors for the fourth straight season.
It will pit the same two teams against each other for the fourth straight season, but this is a final that is a like a laboratory experiment set up to test the old National Basketball Association maxim that the team with the best player in a series will win.

"Just trying to figure out how to move in general", Iguodala said. That's how good James remains at 33, as he proved while averaging 34 points, 9.2 rebounds and 8.8 assists in the Eastern Conference playoffs. "Just reminds me a lot of guys I played with back in the day when you see Horace Grant, Robert Horry, Derek Fisher, just something about winning a championship with those guys that you will never forget, and it's a bond that can't be broken". You've seen that throughout the course of the playoffs this year and you've seen it the last three years, that those guys are up for the challenge.
That leaves the Rockets with only one option: a sign-and-trade.
"Draymond was on my team, and he was just like, "Look, you can't do nothing about that. He'll be back 100 percent and we're ready to go".
That's in part because James keeps his body in awesome shape with daily treatments and workouts sustaining world-class conditioning so he can play all 48 minutes if necessary. The Cavaliers look like a great team when Hill is engaged, as he's the only quality two-way player on the roster besides James. Despite not having the best records during the regular season, the Warriors and the Cavaliers still managed to rise to the top of their respective conferences in the playoffs.
When the Cleveland Cavaliers hit their low point this season, even their superstar began to wonder about their chances of recovering.
"Being hunted is different than hunting, and we've been in that role for a long time", Warriors GM Bob Myers told ESPN. Then they get on with the business of sitting by the phone hoping LeBronwants to continue that relationship.
