Gingerly getting dressed after Sunday night's game, Nuggets guard Andre Iguodala proclaimed himself fine from a neck strain and expects to play Tuesday at Toronto.
"I'm all right," Iguodala said.
On the subject of playing: "We'll see," he said. "Probably try to."
Iguodala played nearly 20 minutes in the Nuggets' triple-overtime loss to Boston on Sunday night. He left the game in the third quarter and did not return.
"I just landed funny and kind of jarred my back, and it went out," said Iguodala, who had five points and four assists.
He said rest will be the best remedy. He has not missed a start this season, averaging 34.3 minutes per game.
Iguodala had a day to let the injury heal as the Nuggets were off Monday in Toronto before the back-to-back set against the Raptors on Tuesday, then Wednesday at Brooklyn.
Getting to know you. Nuggets coach George Karl was proud of his team after Sunday's game revealed some characteristics not seen much out of his young players.
"I've been saying for weeks that our team has more toughness than people think we do," Karl said. "I just feel that there's a maturity happening on this team that I think, for me, is pretty obvious. But it's difficult to feel good after a loss."
