Earlier this week, the Golden State Warriors were without Andrew Wiggins, who wasn’t with the team because of a “personal matter.”

He hasn’t played with the Warriors since then.

According to Shams Charania, via NBACentral, Wiggins is “dealing and tending to a serious family matter.”

There is no other information about the situation nor a timetable for Wiggins’ return.

Head coach Steve Kerr briefly spoke about Wiggins earlier this week when he sat down with 95.7 The Game.

“We’re in a position where Wiggs is a private person and he’s asked to keep it private and we’re gonna honor that,” Kerr said, adding that the Warriors do expect him back but they don’t know when.

This isn’t the first time that Wiggins has missed time due to personal reasons.

Last season, he sat out of the final 25 games of the regular season because of a “family matter.”

No other official explanation was given at the time, although NBA reporters would later say that Wiggins’ father was grappling with a medical problem.

Wiggins eventually came back for the playoffs and participated in all 13 games before the Warriors were pushed out of the postseason by the Los Angeles Lakers.

This season, Wiggins has been averaging 12.7 points, 4.3 rebounds, and 1.7 assists per game, shooting 45.5% from the field and 35.1% from the three-point line.

It has been a tough season for the player, although he has improved a bit lately.

The Warriors have been on a strong streak of wins lately, scoring victories in 10 of their last 12 games.

The loss of Wiggins could hurt the team but they will have to persist and push through without him, hoping that he can deal with his family matter and return soon.
