Golden State Warriors forward Andre Iguodala is considered questionable for Game 6 of the Western Conference finals against the Houston Rockets, the team said Friday.

Iguodala, who has missed Games 4 and 5, has a left lateral leg contusion. The Warriors host Game 6 on Saturday and are trailing 3-2 in the best-of-seven series.

"He's dying to play, but he's not healthy enough," coach Steve Kerr said Thursday. "We'll just continue to take it day-to-day.''

The Rockets announced Friday that they will be without point guardChris Paul, who has a right hamstring strain.

Iguodala suffered the injury when he banged knees with Rockets guard James Harden in the fourth quarter of Game 3 on Sunday. He participated in the team's shootaround on Thursday.

Kevon Looneyhas started both games in place of Iguodala, contributing four points in 22 minutes of the Warriors' 98-94 loss on Thursday.

The Warriors opened as a 10.5-point favorite for Game 6 at several sportsbooks. After Paul was ruled out, the Warriors were listed as high as 12-point favorites over the Rockets.
