Golden State Warriors wing Andre Iguodalawas ruled out for Golden State's 136-100 Game 2 Western Conference finals win over the San Antonio Spurs on Tuesday night as he dealt with soreness in his left knee.

Then Golden State lost starting center Zaza Pachulia to a bruised right heel and he was scheduled for an X-ray. Pachulia played nearly seven minutes but not the entire second quarter and he didn't return after halftime as Matt Barnes took his place.

An MRI performed Monday revealed no structural damage in Iguodala's knee, but the team has spent the season trying to manage the 33-year-old's minutes to keep him fresh for a playoff run.

According to a source, Iguodala didn't participate in much of the up-and-down court work leading up to Sunday's Western Conference finals opener because of his knee soreness.

The Warriors' super reserve played only 10 minutes Sunday, scoring two points and registering an assist in the team's 113-111 comeback victory over the Spurs in Game 1.
