Andre Iguodala Injury: Sixers Forward Will Miss Tuesday's Game Against Cavaliers

The Philadelphia 76ers will be without All-Star forward Andre Iguodala (left knee patellar tendonitis) on Tuesday night against the Cleveland Cavaliers. Iguodala's status was doubtful this morning but Sixers head coach Doug Collins ruled out the forward about an hour before the game (via Philly.com).

Iguodala missed the Sixers' last game against the San Antonio Spurs on March 25. The Sixers lost, 93-76. Jodie Meeks started in place of Iguodala in that game. It's highly likely that we will see Meeks in the starting lineup again tonight.

Iguodala had started every game for the season for Philadelphia before the injury. Iguodala averages a team-leading 1.8 steals per game. He also leads the team in assists (5.6 per game) and scores 12.3 points per game in 35.6 minutes. Meeks has appeared in every game this season (39 starts) and scores 8.2 points per game and pulls down 2.6 rebounds per game.
