The Golden State Warriors have played without forward Andre Iguodala since he injured his left knee during Game 3 of the Western Conference finals.

His return from injury could occur soon, however, according to a report from Chris Haynes of ESPN, who says Iguodala hasn’t experienced pain in his left knee for the past few days.

Here’s more from Haynes:

On Saturday, Iguodala went through a full personal workout and sprinted for the first time since suffering a bone bruise in his left knee in Game 3 of the Western Conference finals, sources said.

The swingman’s status for Game 3 on Wednesday is still unknown, according to sources.

When approached after the Warriors defeated the Cleveland Cavaliers 122-103 in Game 2 to take a 20- series lead, Iguodala told ESPN, “I aim to play in Game 3, but I’ve aimed to play in Game 2 and Game 3. We’ll just have to see.”

“I’m optimistic Andre will play at some point in the series,” Warriors coach Steve Kerr said on Sunday. “He has gotten better gradually, but there’s no way of knowing for sure at this point.”

The Warriors hold a 2-0 series lead over the Cavaliers with Game 3 is tonight in Cleveland (9 ET, ABC).
