There’s been lots of speculation over the continued absence of Golden State Warriors star Andrew Wiggins.
The Canadian small forward helped the Warriors return to the top last season as they won their fourth championship since 2015. But he has been away from the team since February 13, with a “family situation” the only explanation coming from the reigning NBA champions.
“With Wiggins missing his sixth straight game on Thursday night, it’s evident that he’s dealing with something significant,” NBA writer Connor Letourneau reported when the player missed a sixth consecutive outing earlier in March.
While the Warriors remain mum, the internet has been at it.
A TikTok video that reached Twitter on Thursday claims the forward is taking time off after finding out his wife had been having an affair with his best friend. The male relaying the story also says the couple’s two daughters are not Wiggins’ biological kids.
Former NBA star Paul Pierce even took got on the platform to say he hopes the rumor is false.

The claims have been branded as baseless as Wiggins is not married but has been in a longtime relationship with the mother of his two girls.
While the video notes the first daughter came along while Wiggins was in high school, she was born in 2018. Wiggins was already in the NBA four years, playing for the Minnesota Timberwolves.
The couple’s second daughter was born in 2021.
