The Golden State Warriors, currently the sixth-best team in the West, are doing everything they can to bounce back from a lackluster season and go deep into the playoffs.

Unfortunately, they may be doing it without one of their biggest stars.

Andrew Wiggins hasn’t played for his Warriors since Feb. 13.

After that game, the Warriors listed him as absent for personal reasons and he has yet to return or make an appearance since.

Sam Esfandiari posted a video on Twitter of Fox Sports analyst Colin Cowherd saying he’d heard Wiggins “probably won’t be returning for the season”.

Cowherd added that the loss of Wiggins is not “100%” but that the Warriors have made peace with the fact that they will be without him.

The Warriors went 7-5 without Wiggins, so they’re still hanging on, but they’re desperately lacking his size and versatility.

Fans are wondering what’s going on with Wiggins, but it’s highly unlikely they’ll ever find out.

Warriors players and coaches have been incredibly quiet about the cause of his absence, offering him nothing but lots of love and support.

There was hope among the loyal fanbase that Wiggins would be able to overcome whatever personal issues he was facing and be back for the playoffs.

But this latest report from Cowherd makes the odds of that happening seem slim.

Therefore, the Warriors will be without Wiggins in the playoffs.

During last year’s playoffs, he was very useful for future champions, posting 16.5 points, 7.5 rebounds and 1.8 assists.

Those are numbers the team could definitely use right now.

Warriors will briefly lose Draymond Green
