Andrew Wiggins Disappears Golden State Warriors Due COVID-19 restrictions

Golden State Warriors' Andrew Wiggins indefinitely away for "personal reasons." Coach Steve Kerr confirms, raising concerns about his playing career.

Golden State Warriors small forward Andrew Wiggins is currently on an indefinite leave from the team due to personal reasons, as confirmed by head coach Steve Kerr during a recent radio interview. Kerr mentioned that Wiggins is dealing with a personal matter and while they expect him to return, the exact timeline is uncertain.

Kerr did not provide a specific return date for Wiggins, ruling him out for the upcoming game against the New York Knicks, making it his second consecutive missed game. The 6-foot-7 forward also missed the previous game against the Washington Wizards, with guard Moses Moody expected to step in for him in the meantime. Wiggins is currently averaging a career-low 12.7 points per game this season.

Following the win against the Wizards, Kerr emphasized the importance of respecting Wiggins' privacy regarding the situation and mentioned that they will proceed accordingly based on his wishes. This sudden absence raises concerns about Wiggins' status with the Warriors and his overall playing career, especially considering a similar situation last season where he took a 48-day leave from the team.

During that time, rumors circulated about the reasons behind Wiggins' absence, including speculation about him raising someone else's child, which was later debunked by his girlfriend. It was revealed that Wiggins' father was dealing with health issues during that period. The Warriors, currently ranked ninth in the Western Conference with a record of 30-27, will have to navigate Wiggins' absence as they continue their season.
