#Warriors #Andrew #Wiggins #allowed #train #time #month #loading #abductor Welcome to Alaska Green Light Blog, here is the new story we have for you today:
It’s been a roller coaster season for the Golden State Warriors after winning the NBA Finals last season. With a record of 20-19, the Warriors are third in the Pacific Division and ninth in the Western Conference. Injuries have played a big role in the Warriors’ 2022-23 season so far. Golden State is currently trying to avenge Steph Curry while Steph Curry is out with a shoulder injury. Luckily, they’ve received good news of another All-Star returning to the roster.
Head coach Steve Kerr updated the media after last night’s Warriors loss that Andrew Wiggins has been allowed to train for the first time in over a month. Wiggins has since 3.12. did not play another game and was first sidelined with a right abductor strain and then missed the last four games with a non-covid illness.
He is in his fourth season for Golden State and has played in 22 of their 39 games this season. Bringing him back into the lineup is another goalscorer who can take over a game while Curry is out. NBA betting sites have the Warriors at (+950) to win the finals this season.
ANDREW WIGGINS UPDATE: Finally some good news, the Warriors say Wiggins has been given permission to return to training which is helping him regain his fitness. Wiggins missed 10 games with a right adductor strain and 4 through illness. He will be re-evaluated later this week. #DubNation

Andrew Wiggins has been allowed to return to training for the first time in over a month
After the Warriors’ 122-119 loss to the Detroit Pistons last night, head coach Steve Kerr gives a positive update on Andrew Wiggins’ return.
“He’s been training really well the past few days and just now one more”,… “Well, the trend is going in a good direction.” – Steve Kerr
Golden State’s next game is this Saturday against the Orlando Magic and Kerr said he’s not sure if Wiggins will return then. He mentioned that things are going well for him in the ramp-up process. Going back to the gym to get the conditioning and reps he needs is most valuable on his return. Even the best players can’t take a month off and expect their bodies to play the same way after an injury.
The Warriors lost seven of nine games immediately following Wiggin’s injury on 12/3. In that stretch of play they also lost Curry with the shoulder injury. It seemed like Golden State would finally get their grove after Kevon Looney hit a buzzer beater against the Hawks to keep their five-game winning streak alive. That winning streak ended last night when Saddiq Bey hit a buzzer beater three against the Warriors. Your game on Tuesday, October 1st. could be a more realistic return date for Wiggins.
