The Golden State Warriors announced on Thursday afternoon that Andre Iguodala, who has been listed as questionable with a left lateral leg contusion, will not play in Thursday’s critical Game 5 matchup against the Houston Rockets in the Western Conference Finals.

Klay Thompson, who was also listed as questionable with a left knee strain, is available to play.

Iguodala suffered the leg injury after colliding with Rockets guard James Harden in Game 3 of the series, and has not played since.

“(Iguodala is) day to day,” Kerr said before the game on Thursday. “He’s dying to play, but he’s not healthy enough to play.”

Thompson suffered his injury early in Game 4 on Thursday after he drove to the basket but was blocked by Clint Capela.

The Warriors and the Rockets will kick off Game 5 of the series at 9 p.m. ET on Thursday in Houston.
