Andrew Wiggins suffered a bad injury: race-6 in doubt for him

The Golden State Warriors were relatively injury-free in the second-round NBA playoff series against the Los Angeles Lakers. Unfortunately for them, the reigning champions’ fortunes may have taken a turn for the worse. This comes in the form of an unfortunate injury to Andrew Wiggins on the eve of their do-or-die Game 6 at Crypto.com Arena on Friday night.

The Athletic’s reporter actively following the Warriors, Anthony Slater, reports that Wiggins is currently dealing with a rib injury and his status for Game 6 is now on hold:

“News of note: Andrew Wiggins is listed as questionable for Game 6 with a fracture of the left rib cartilage. This is an area of the rib cage.” Slater wrote in his tweet.

This appears to be a new injury for Wiggins, which means it is likely that he suffered the blow in their Game 5 win over the Lakers on Wednesday night. At this point, the severity of the injury remains unknown, but there is no denying that this is a cause for concern for the Warriors, considering they had to list him as questionable to play Game 6.

You should note, however, that this may be the last game of the season for Golden State. They head to Los Angeles down 3-2 in the series against LeBron James and company, so you would expect that only a serious injury would prevent Wiggins from adjusting to what will be the most important game of the season for the Warriors.
