The shots keep coming deep for the Golden State Warriors.

Veteran winger Andre Iguodala will undergo surgery next week for a broken left wrist, the team announced on Wednesday. The Warriors said they would post an update on his status after the surgery.

The injury was reportedly sustained in the Warriors’ win over the Phoenix Suns on Monday, in which Iguodala played 16 minutes and was up to the four-minute mark in the fourth quarter. It was his eighth game played of the season.

He had already been ruled out for a game against the Los Angeles Clippers on Wednesday with left wrist pain.

The Warriors have been without Andre Iguodala and others for much of the season

Iguodala re-signed with the Warriors this season on a veteran’s minimum contract after returning last season and winning his fourth NBA title with the team. The 39-year-old said in September that he planned to retire after this season but also missed the vast majority of this season due to a hip injury.

Iguodala only made his season debut on January 8 and then missed several weeks after playing just three games. He returned on March 5, playing five more games before injuring his wrist.

That leaves Iguodala averaging 2.1 points in 14.1 minutes over eight games in what is believed to be his final season.

The loss of Iguodala hits the Warriors particularly hard as they lacked depth on the wing. For reasons the team declined to disclose, Andrew Wiggins has not played since March 13 and has no schedule to return. Jonathan Kuminga also missed three games with an ankle injury, but that’s likely for Wednesday.
