Unfortunately, the Warriors will only have Wiggins available to play road games.
According to a report from the San Francisco Chronicle, the Warriors forward is refusing to get vaccinated and will only get it if he’s forced to do so. The city of San Francisco is requiring the vaccine for anyone who participates in indoor entertainment. This would include Golden State Warriors games.
The NBA could grant Wiggins a religious exemption. The San Francisco Department of Public Health will not comment on Wiggins’ situation unless he’s officially given one.
“We are actively addressing the matter of requests for religious exemption from vaccinations across many industries and will work with our business and entertainment community on next steps,” the San Francisco Department of Public Health said in a statement. “We will provide further clarification on this topic.”
If Wiggins is forced to miss games, he would forfeit $350,000/game.
Last season, the former No. 1 overall NBA Draft pick averaged 18.6 points, 4.9 rebounds and 2.4 assists per game.
