Steve Kerr addressed the absence of star forward Andrew Wiggins, who has been out of the Golden State Warriors’ lineup for personal reasons.
Wiggins hasn’t played since after the All-Star Break, which means that it has been almost a month since he last appeared in a Warriors uniform.
Golden State head coach said he is hopeful Andrew Wiggins will return this season, but at the moment all options are open concerning the All-Star forward’s availability for the remainder of the season.

Andrew Wiggins is experiencing a lot of ups and downs this season. He was out for a month between December and January, due to an adductor strain and subsequent illness. Now, he is out for personal reasons with no indications as to the issue he is dealing with.
In 37 games so far, Wiggins has been averaging 17.1 points, five rebounds and 2.3 assists, on 47.3% from the field and 39.6% from beyond the arc. The Warriors are sixth in the West standings with a 35-33 record.
