Andre Iguodala missed Game 4 of the Western Conference Finals with a calf injury and looked like he may have re-injured that same leg in Game 1 of the NBA Finals.

However, the latest report from The Athletic's Anthony Slater says that Iguodala's MRI was clean, and that he is expected to play in Game 2.

With 1:55 remaining in the fourth quarter, Iguodala sank a hook shot as the shot clock wound down but immediately came up hobbling, favouring his left leg.

Less than 40 seconds later, head coach Steve Kerr made a substitution for Iguodala, who would not return for the remainder of the game. He finished with six points, seven assists and six rebounds in just over 29 minutes of action.

Following the game, the 35-year-old told assured that he would be fine, and that the leg issue wouldn't hold him out for Game 2.

With Kevin Durant already sidelined due to a calf injury and Iguodala serving as the primary defender on Raptors forward Kawhi Leonard, his status as the series progresses is a major focal point.

More updates to come when made available.
