Why did Andrew Wiggins skip the Warriors’ game against the Clippers? Steve Kerr shares insight on bizarre injury

Andrew Wiggins has been an important player for the Golden State Warriors since the suspension of Draymond Green who was a core player. Wiggins has been proving his value on the team and making the most of the opportunity provided to him.

Although the Warriors have had a rough start to the season, he has consistently delivered reliable performances and is displaying great determination in fulfilling his assigned role. However, he was unexpectedly unable to play against the Los Angeles Clippers.

Why did Andrew Wiggins not play against the Clippers?

Andrew Wiggins was unable to play in the match against the Los Angeles Clippers due to an unusual injury, which led to him being ruled out of the game. The Warriors faced a tough Clippers team, but they were missing key players like Chris Paul and Gary Payton II due to injuries. CP3 is currently managing a nerve injury in his leg, while Payton sustained a right calf strain during the game against the Sacramento Kings on Tuesday. He is currently in the process of recovering from the injury.

However, one of the most peculiar injuries has to be that of Andrew Wiggins. Reportedly, he injured his index finger when he accidentally slammed it in his car door. As a result, he was struggling to shoot the ball and was subsequently benched before the game. Steve Kerr, the head coach of the Golden State Warriors, provided some valuable information about Andrew Wiggins’ condition during his press conference. Kerr reportedly said, ” He slammed a car door this morning, he went on a shootaround and I knew as soon as I saw him. It’s his index finger. He couldn’t shoot, couldn’t put much pressure. So I think he’ll be out, It’s a tough blow for him and us but I think It’ll be short.”
