Golden State Warriors center Zaza Pachulia will not play in Saturday's Game 3 of the Western Conference finals against the San Antonio Spurs, the team announced.

Pachulia suffered a right heel contusion in Game 2 after landing awkwardly on a dunk. He had been a limited participant in practice after MRI results came back clean.

The Warriors said Andre Iguodala, who has left knee soreness, is available to play Saturday after missing the second game of the series.

Pachulia has been averaging 6.1 points and 4.3 rebounds per game during the Warriors' 10-game postseason winning streak.

The Warriors lead the best-of-seven series 2-0.
