Injury Report: Andrew Wiggins to miss game vs. New York Knicks

Andrew Wiggins is set to miss his second straight game due to personal reasons. He was absent from the Golden State Warriors rotation against the Washington Wizards on Tuesday, and he will miss Golden State’s game against the New York Knicks on Thursday, as reported by The Athletic’s Anthony Slater. 

Golden State will face the Toronto Raptors on Friday; however, Wiggins’s availability for that game is not known. Wiggins has enjoyed a resurgence in recent weeks after struggling to reach his usual performance level during the first half of the season.

Due to the nature of his absence, it’s unlikely Wiggins made the trip for these Eastern Conference games with his team. Fans hope to see him return to the rotation in the coming days or weeks, in large part due to his importance to the roster and the team’s chances of success.

The Warriors will be looking to add another win to their season tally when they face New York as they bid to continue climbing the Western Conference standings.
