Andre Iguodala never mentioned his troublesome knee this season after it bothered him repeatedly last season.

That changed Monday when Iguodala acknowledged that his left knee has bothered him for the past month. He sat out the 76ers' 93-76 loss to San Antonio on Sunday, but said he hopes to play tonight against the Cleveland Cavaliers.

Last season, Iguodala was diagnosed with chondromalacia, the same condition as Phillies second baseman Chase Utley. Utley missed the first seven weeks of last season and could miss as much, if not more, this season.
