Warriors play it safe, hold Iguodala out of opener

OAKLAND — The Golden State Warriors will begin the season sans Andre Iguodala (back strain), but head coach Steve Kerr said the veteran’s absence is nothing more than a precautionary move.

“It’s not something we’re going to take a chance on — especially opening night,” Kerr said before the Dubs face the Houston Rockets at Oracle. “[There’s a] long season ahead. He should be fine for the road trip.”

 

Kerr added the defensive specialist tweaked his back in the weight room.

No. 7 for the coach

Just before Kerr collected his second ring as a coach — to go along with five as a player — the Warriors boss was asked if any particular ceremony leaps to mind.
