Andrew Wiggins rejoins Warriors lineup following 4-game absence for personal reasons involving family

On Monday, Andrew Wiggins returned to the Golden State Warriors after missing four games to attend to a personal family matter. During his absence, the Warriors managed a 3-1 record without him, securing wins against the Washington Wizards, New York Knicks, and Toronto Raptors. However, they suffered a heavy loss to the Boston Celtics on Sunday to conclude a four-game road trip.

Wiggins, who is in his fourth season with the Warriors, has been averaging a career-low 12.7 points and 4.3 rebounds per game this season. Head coach Steve Kerr emphasized that the welfare of players off the court is more significant than basketball, supporting Wiggins’ decision to prioritize his family matters. The Warriors currently hold a 32-28 record and are ranked 10th in the Western Conference standings, maintaining a five-game lead over the Utah Jazz for a playoff spot.

On Tuesday afternoon, Wiggins joined the team for practice and is expected to play in Wednesday night’s game against the Milwaukee Bucks at the Chase Center. Moses Moody filled in for Wiggins during his absence but is anticipated to return to the bench with Wiggins back in action. Despite his recent struggles on court this season, Wiggins remains an important part of the Warriors’ success and will continue to contribute as much as he can offensively and defensively when he returns from his personal matter.
