Wiggins gets COVID-19 vaccine

LOS ANGELES – Golden State forward Andrew Wiggins has had a change of heart and got the COVID-19 vaccine, making him eligible to play in Warrior home games this season.

Coach Steve Kerr made the announcement at Sunday’s practice but did not say when the 26-year-old Canadian got vaccinated or which vaccine he received.

Wiggins had applied to the NBA for a religious exemption last month, but was denied.

“Andrew got vaccinated,” Kerr said. “He just told me today that he was fine with us acknowledging it and that will be the end of it. I’m not going to answer any questions beyond that.”

Under new civic health and safety rules, Wiggins would have been barred from taking part in Golden State home games if he didn’t get vaccinated.
