The Warriors are not currently factoring Andre Iguodala into their Game 7 plans.
"We're operating under the assumption he won't play," Golden State coach Steve Kerr told reporters Saturday.
Iguodala missed the Warriors 115-86 Game 6 win over the Rockets, which evened the Western Conference finals at 3-3.
Iguodala injured his left leg in Game 3 when he collided with James Harden on a drive midway through the fourth quarter. He was also out for Games 4 and 5.
Iguodala has averaged 7.9 points and 4.9 rebounds in 13 playoff games. He averaged six points and 3.8 rebounds per game in the regular season.
Warriors forward Kevon Looney's minutes have increased in Iguodala's absence while center Jordan Bell has also played more off the bench.
The Warriors and Rockets will play Monday at 9 p.m. ET on Sportsnet One for a spot in the NBA Finals.
