It has been a while since Andrew Wiggins played for the Golden State Warriors. The last time he played a game for the defending champs was on February 13. It has been more than a month now and fans have been eager to know the reason for his absence. The Warriors only mentioned that he was out due to family matters.
There have been countless reports on his status, as many even mentioned that he suffered an injury. But what caught the eye of the NBA world was an ugly rumor involving Wiggins, his friend, and his girlfriend Mychal Johnson.
Rumors: the reason Andrew Wiggins has taken the last month or so off from #DubNation is because he found out his wife has been having an affair with his best friend, and all this time Wiggins has been raising their kid?? Nah man that’s just messed up bruhhh 🤦🏽♂️ #hoes

A fan tweeted that Mychal Johnson was having an affair and that has been the reason for the Warriors player’s absence. Johnson took to Twitter to dismiss these rumors and claimed that they were the “Farthest thing from the truth.” She also had a go at the fans for spreading false claims about her.

Draymond Green addressed these rumors on the ‘Draymond Green Show‘ recently. He said, “I want to let you all know about how absolutely ridiculous most of you people are at life,” Green said. “The fact that a rumor about Andrew Wiggins — I don’t know if it’s true. I’m not here to confirm whether it’s true or not. I really don’t care, like it ain’t got nothing to do with me.”

“You hear stuff like that, and you care for like him and her, like and their children. So I care from that perspective. But whether what y’all said is true or not really has no bearing on my life nor does it have any bearing on your life,” Green added.
The 4x NBA champion claims that the fans have no reason to speculate in such a way about Wiggins and his girlfriend. However, it all went wrong when some fans continued to focus on the rumor in response to Draymond.
So its true then!? Thanks for confirming Dray 🤣🤣🤣

Why did Dray need to say anything about the matter? It’s up to Wiggins to address it or not. Since Dray doesn’t care, or so he says, why is he talking about it?

A fan tweeted, “So its true then!? Thanks for confirming Dray,” while others questioned his decision to address the claims on a public platform. Another fan even brought up DG’s incident with GSW teammate Jordan Poole. For those who don’t know, Green punched Poole during Warriors practice a few months ago and it has been a talking point ever since.
The Warriors have not revealed the actual reason for Wiggins’ absence and it is with good reason. It certainly means the player wishes for privacy and the NBA community has to respect it and avoid speculating about his personal life.
