Andrew Wiggins’ current absence for the Golden State Warriors has been a major mystery so far around the league, and it can only be generalized by those people who are around him.

An anonymous Golden State teammate of Andrew Wiggins made it known that the star forward is truly dealing with a serious personal concern.

“What he’s dealing with, is some real (expletive),” the teammate told Marcus Thompson II of The Athletic.

In his appearance on 95.7 The Game this Wednesday, Dubs general manager Bob Myers offered his thoughts about ongoing absence of Wiggins.

 “I haven’t heard anything along the lines of he’s not coming back. There’s speculation on that, but I haven’t been told, ‘hey, look, I’m not coming back. Nobody said that to me.”

“Nothing different than before. Same answer… We got to respect him and his life and his privacy.”

Golden State’s Wednesday matchup against the L.A. Clippers marks the 13th-straight time that Wiggins will miss a game for the team. He has been out since Feb. 13.

This season, he is averaging 17.1 points and 5.0 rebounds across 37 games, shooting 47.3 percent from the field and a career-high 39.6 percent from three.
