The Warriors are already facing challenges in what has not been the best season, and having more players sidelined with injuries only worsens the situation. The Dubs received another setback as their star player Andrew Wiggins was sidelined due to an injury.

Despite playing well, Wiggins has been constantly surrounded by trade rumors. Numerous talks have centered around him, with the Dallas Mavericks expressing significant interest in acquiring the forward from the Warriors.

Andrew Wiggins injury update

The Warriors were set to play against the Hawks on Saturday night, and during the match, Andrew Wiggins suffered an injury. With Chris Paul, Gary Payton II, and Moses Moody already sidelined, Wiggins’ injury added to the team’s challenges. After playing only 19 minutes in the first half, Wiggins was ruled out for the remainder of the game.

The official account of the Warriors posted an update during play regarding their forward on social media. They informed the fans that Wiggins had suffered a left ankle injury and would not return to the game.

The Warriors tried their best to stay in the game and secure a win, but Wiggins’ loss was a crucial blow to the Dubs mid-game, and they eventually lost with a final score of 134-141.

Mavs interested to bring in Andrew Wiggins

Andrew Wiggins has been at the center of many trade rumors lately and a new team has joined the fray with the hopes of signing the Warriors star. It has been reported that the Dallas Mavericks are very interested in picking up Andrew Wiggins if the Warriors are ready to trade him.

The news was released by MFFL on X which has a reputation of being a reliable source in terms of news related to the Mavs. So, this rumor can be trusted to some extent but still take it with a grain of salt.

Wiggins would fit perfectly in the current Mavs squad, providing depth to the roster and allowing their head coach to be more flexible in rotations. He would also be a great support to the Mavs stars Luka Doncic and Kyrie Irving. However, a trade from the Warriors side is questionable as Dubs head coach Steve Kerr recently shared his views on all the trade rumors signaling a non-trade mindset.

What do you think of the Mavs showing interest in Andrew Wiggins? When do you think Wiggins will return from injury? We are eager to hear your thoughts, so drop down in the comments section and let us know.
