OAKLAND – On Andre Iguodala bobblehead night at Oracle Arena, there will be no Andre Iguodala on the court for the Warriors.

Iguodala will be sidelined for at least the next three games, over a 10-day span, with tendinitis in his right knee, coach Mark Jackson announced Tuesday night prior to the game against the Magic.

The 30-year-old forward, averaging 9.3 points and 4.6 rebounds per game, has been hampered by knee soreness the past few games but has played through it. The team medical staff and trainers decided Tuesday that it's best for Iguodala to sit out a few days.

"Treatment, rehab, rest and we'll act accordingly after that," Jackson said.

Iguodala missed 12 games from Nov. 23 to Dec. 15 with a strained hamstring he suffered against the Lakers.

The Warriors play Thursday against Milwaukee, Saturday against San Antonio and then have a five-day layoff before hosting the Grizzlies on Friday, March 28. 

Second-year forward Harrison Barnes will replace Iguodala in the starting lineup against Orlando.
