It has been quite a dramatic NBA season, especially for the Golden State Warriors. The team has been making the rounds in the news for many reasons lately. While the team continues its struggles on the road, star Andrew Wiggins’ extended absence has led to some unwanted attention. The reasons for his absence are still unknown with a few unsettling rumors propping up on Twitter.

Wiggins hasn’t addressed the rumors as expected, but the increasing noise forced his girlfriend to step in and clear the air.
