The Golden State Warriors will face the best team in the Eastern Conference tonight, the Boston Celtics. Stephen Curry & co have had a troublesome season so far. They have been plagued by injuries and surrounded by drama through their first 26 games. It has caused the Warriors to slip to the 11th spot in the Western Conference standings. With Draymond Green still in the first week of his indefinite suspension, the Warriors have played most of their games shorthanded.

According to the Golden State Warriors’ latest injury report, former All-Star Andrew Wiggins is listed as questionable for tonight’s game due to an illness. His status was ‘probable’ before the latest update. That is a massive blow for the Warriors, as Wiggins was coming off a solid 25-point game against the Portland Trail Blazers. Wiggins has had an inconsistent season, just like the Warriors. He has shown bursts of his All-Star self in some games and been quiet in others. Wiggins is averaging 12.6 points and 4.5 rebounds this season. The Warriors will miss the former Number 1 pick’s scoring ability.

Andrew Wiggins signed a 4-year $109 million contract extension with the Warriors last October after he made his first All-Star team and helped the Warriors win a Championship. Golden State had high hopes for the 28-year-old, but he has failed to live up to the expectations this season. Wiggins is having the worst scoring season of his career. His 12.6 point per game average is the lowest of his 10-year career. The Dub Nation is hoping for Wiggins to return to his All-Star form and save the Warriors’ season.

Klay Thompson Confident Steve Kerr’s New Andrew Wiggins Strategy Will Fail for Good Reasons: “It’s Coming”

Can the Warriors topple the Boston Celtics without Andrew Wiggins?

If Andrew Wiggins gets ruled out of tonight’s game against the Celtics, it will be extremely tough for the Warriors to come out with a win. Boston has been the best team in the East for most of the season, and they have built solid chemistry in a short span. Meanwhile, the Warriors are struggling to find their rhythm. There has been a glimmer of hope for the Warriors fans with Klay Thompson’s recent scoring outburst. Klay has struggled all season to get going, but it looks like he has finally found his groove.

Klay has scored a total of 82 points in the last three games, going 17 of 31 from beyond the arc. If the 4-time Champion continues his impressive run, the Warriors might sneak a win over Boston without Andrew Wiggins. It will be interesting to see which team comes out on top in the 2022 NBA Finals rematch.
