It will be the second straight game Iguodala has missed after he bruised his left knee in the fourth quarter of Sunday's game.
Houston got a 95-92 win in Game 4 on Tuesday to even the series at 2-2 heading in Thursday's game.
While Golden State will be without Iguodala, the Warriors will have Klay Thompson. Thompson had been listed as questionable leading up to the game because of a strained left knee. But coach Steve Kerr says that Thompson will play.
