The Golden State Warriors may be playoff bound this year after going winless all last season, but it’s been a rough year for a number of different reasons.
Along with being one of the worst road teams in the NBA with an ugly 9-29 record away from the Bay Area, the team has had to battle through its title defense without one of its best guards, Andrew Wiggins. .
Wiggins has been dealing with off-the-floor issues that have caused him to miss most of the season and play in only 37 games so far.
The rumors swirling around Wiggins’ absence have been linked to something going on with his girlfriend, and now things may be back to normal with his girlfriend’s social media indicating he’s back in the Bay Area.
In the post, she asks for recommendations for Bay Area curly hair specialists.

That doesn’t mean all is well and Wiggins will be back on the floor anytime soon.
There’s no telling what’s going on behind the scenes with Wiggins, nor what his mindset might be about getting back on the floor for the Warriors after the season.
Although the Warriors sit in the fifth seed in the Western Conference and have won six of their last 10 games, the team desperately needs Wiggins in the playoffs to have any hope of repeating.
Only time will tell whether Wiggins is ready to go back to work and whether he can truly make an impact when the playoffs roll around for the defending NBA champions.
