The Warriors' Andre Iguodala underwent a year-end physical that showed right knee tendinitis and left hip soreness, but he won't need surgery at this time, according to a team spokesman.

Iguodala's physical included an MRI exam as he played through the knee tendinitis in the playoffs that caused him to miss six games in his first season with the Warriors after signing a four-year, $48 million contract.

Rest during the offseason and a possible injection are in the plans for the 30-year-old Iguodala, who also missed 12 games because of a left hamstring strain that bothered him for months.

Iguodala averaged 9.3 points, scoring under double digits for the first time since his rookie season. His 4.7 rebounds per game were a career low, and his 4.2 assists per game were down from recent years.

Iguodala was a standout on defense, finishing fifth in the NBA defensive player of the year voting.
