Golden State Warriors forward Andre Iguodala exited Friday’s game against the Los Angeles Lakers at the Staples Center with a left hamstring injury.

The Warriors landed Iguodala in one of the offseason’s biggest moves, adding him to a high-octane starting lineup that has some thinking Golden State could be a legitimate NBA title contender in 2013-14. Iguodala, a versatile 6’6″ swingman, considered among the best perimeter defenders in the game, has the ability to create his own offense.

In playing alongside guards Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson, Iguodala has been able to settle into a more complementary role while becoming more efficient.  Entering Friday’s contest, the 29-year-old was averaging 13.5 points and 6.3 assists per game while shooting a stellar 55.7 percent from the field, including 47.8 percent from beyond the arc.
