The Warriors will have even more ammunition against the Cavaliers Wednesday for Game 3 of the NBA Finals.

Starting forward Andre Iguodala has been ruled active for Game 3 after missing the team's last six games with a left lateral leg contusion. Golden State already leads the series 2-0.

Andre Iguodala (left lateral leg contusion/bone bruise) is available to play in tonight's Game 3 at Cleveland.

"I don't know how many minutes he'd be able to play, but he's been feeling pretty good the last two days," Kerr told reporters. "(He) made a lot of improvement from where he was, so it's all leaning in the right direction."

Iguodala, 34, was taking shots during the shootaround with his left knee wrapped, and he is expected to participate in warm-ups, according to The Athletic.

He injured his left leg in Game 3 of the Western Conference finals when he collided with the Rockets' James Harden on a drive midway through the fourth quarter. Iguodala missed the rest of that series as well as Golden State's victories in Games 1 and 2 of the NBA Finals.

The 2015 Finals MVP averaged 7.9 points and 4.9 rebounds in 13 playoff games before his injury. He averaged six points and 3.8 rebounds per game in the regular season.

The Cavaliers will host the Warriors in Game 3 of the NBA Finals with tipoff set for 9 p.m. ET. Golden State leads the series, 2-0.
