The Golden State Warriors are listing Andrew Wiggins as questionable for Game 6 due to a left costal cartilage that was apparently suffered during Game 5.

This is an identical injury to the one suffered by Kevon Looney in the 2019 NBA Finals, one he played through an obvious amount of pain.

Wiggins appeared to injure it late in the fourth quarter of Game 6 after a box out, where he was grabbing his left rib area in apparent discomfort.

According to resident Warriors Twitter physician Dr. Nirav Pandya, Wiggins’ ability to play depends largely on pain relief.

If Wiggins ends up missing Game 6, the Warriors will be without their best two-way wing and primary LeBron James defender – in addition to his offensive production in this series against the Los Angeles Lakers: 16.8 points, six rebounds, and 2.8 assists on 48/38/87 shooting splits and 58.7% TS.
