The Golden State Warriors are just 1 game above the play-in spots after their latest loss to the Atlanta Hawks on Friday night. The last time Stephen Curry and the Warriors appeared in the play-in, things did not end well. Fans are concerned, especially considering their road record this season. In this crucial time, Warriors forward Andrew Wiggins‘ absence continues to bother fans. The 28-year-old hasn’t suited up for the team since February 13 because of personal reasons. After some ugly rumors emerged regarding his continued absence, his girlfriend had to clear things up herself.

Mychal Johnson, the girlfriend of the 2022 NBA champion, broke her silence after reports revealing she cheated on him went viral all over the internet. Fans were quick to jump to her defense as the family deals with a possibly serious issue.

Ever since his arrival in Golden State, Wiggins has been a key piece for the team. Though the star was initially signed to reduce the liability in defense, Wiggins made a statement last year with his offensive talent. The forward’s support is one of the major reasons Steph Curry’s Warriors lifted their fourth title in the last eight years. Moreover, after his first championship with the Warriors, Wiggins signed a 4-year contract extension with the team.

Averaging 17.1 points and 5 rebounds, Wiggins helped the Warriors stay alive in Curry’s absence. However, his absence from the team for over a month has raised concerns. Considering the Warriors’ poor defense this season, it’s no doubt they are in desperate need of him. However, the forward continues to sit out for personal reasons which the fans are eager to know.
