Andrew Wiggins is a Canadian basketball player. Wiggins plays for the Golden State Warriors in the National Basketball Association (NBA). The Cleveland Cavaliers drafted Wiggins as No.1 overall in the 2014 NBA Draft. Since he arrived at the Golden State Warriors he has gone from strength to strength. This season he has played 37 games for the Warriors and is averaging 17.1 points, 2.3 assists, and 5.0 rebounds.
Wiggins has established himself as one of the most reliable players on the Warrior’s roster. However, this season is not what many fans would’ve expected from the Canadian international. He has missed 21 games for the Warriors this season due to an adductor strain, a foot injury, and illness. The Warriors forward has missed action since February 13. The Athletic has reported, that Andrew is dealing with a family matter, and his return is unknown. This has been confirmed by the organization and Steve Kerr.
Wiggins signed a contract extension last year with the Warriors. He signed a 4-year extension, which will see him earn $142 million by the end of the 2026-27 season.

His career turned for the best when he joined the Warriors in 2020. The Warriors have made a significant commitment to the Canadian.
Starting from the 2024-25 season, Wiggins will be earning more than the $25 million mark for the remaining 3 seasons with the Warriors. Which will also see him make $30 million in the final season with the Warrior. The defending champions have made serious financial commitments for the Canadian and will be hoping to see him back on the court after he gets his family situation in place.
