Injury Report: Warriors’ Andrew Wiggins starting Game 6 vs. Lakers
Following Game 5 on Wednesday, Andrew Wiggins appeared on the injury report for the Golden State Warriors on Thursday.
Prior to the Warriors’ win-or-go-home Game 6 against the Los Angeles Lakers on Friday in Hollywood, Wiggins was listed as questionable for Game 6 with a left costal cartilage fracture.
After going through the early morning shootaround and his pregame routine before tipoff, Wiggins will enter the starting lineup for Game 6 despite suffering a rib injury in Game 5.
Steve Kerr and the Warriors will stick with the same starting lineup that helped the Warriors win Game 5 with Gary Payton II alongside Steph Curry, Klay Thompson, Draymond Green and Wiggins.
