Steve Kerr on Wiggins: “We anticipate he’ll be available”

  Steve Kerr on Wiggins: “We anticipate he’ll be available” Kerr is spouting the company line that the Warriors expect Wiggins back on the court for home games.Because Wiggins cannot play in home games or practice with the team in the city due to a San Francisco mandate requiring people to be vaccinated for most things indoors, Warriors coach Steve Kerr gets asked about Wiggins’ status daily. Every day he has to toe the company line, and he did that again on Saturday, adding the Warriors expect he will be available.

  Can Andrew Wiggins play in home games? Warriors forward comments on vaccination decision Under San Francisco's policy, Warriors players will be required to provide proof of vaccination before entering the Chase Center beginning Oct. 13.  (Visiting players will follow different protocols.) Had Wiggins remained unvaccinated, he would not have been paid for any games that he missed, potentially leaving millions of dollars on the table. He also would have put Golden State in a difficult position to start the season, as he is slated to be a member of the starting lineup after averaging 18.6 points per game last season, the second-highest mark on the team behind only Stephen Curry (32.0).

More on this storyline

The Warriors have been subject to rumors of trading away Andrew Wiggins, James Wiseman, their two 2021 lottery picks — Jonathan Kuminga and Moses Moody — and possibly even future draft picks. But sources within the Golden State organization told NBC Sports Bay Area that there is only one player they’d be willing to give all of that away for. And that player isn’t even available yet. -via NBC Sports / August 1, 2021 No particular name was mentioned, but it’s hard not to assume Washington Wizards star shooting guard Bradley Beal is the aforementioned player. Beal would be a logical addition to the Warrior, and would be someone who could help get them back on top of the Western Conference, if not the NBA. But Beal has denied wanting a trade out of Washington. -via NBC Sports / August 1, 2021 The Golden State Warriors basically assumed the 76ers’ offer as a joke. The Sixers asked for Andrew Wiggins, James Wiseman, the Nos. 7 and 14 picks in tonight’s NBA draft along with two future first-rounders in exchange for Ben Simmons, according to multiple sources. The Warriors quickly turned down the offer. -via The Philadelphia Inquirer / July 29, 2021
