Andrew Wiggins is looking forward to playing side by side with his fellow teammate Klay Thompson

As a result of Klay’s left ACL tear and right Achilles tear, he was unable to play for the Warriors for two seasons. Yet there is a chance he might return between now and next month. Warriors head coach Steve Kerr clarified his statements on his return, in addition to confirming he had met health requirements.

“I am starting to think about that. Klay’s gonna start when he comes back. I’m not gonna mess around, bring him off the bench for a period of time. I’m not doing any of that. He’s going to start. We’ll see what that means in terms of the rest of the rotation.”
