Golden State Warriors forward Andrew Wiggins said “It’s my problem not yours” when it comes to staying unvaccinated against COVID-19. The Canadian athlete is sticking to his beliefs even though the decision could soon cost him playing in home games. If Wiggins remains unvaccinated, he faces the outcome of not being allowed into Golden State’s home building at Chase Center as of October 13.
This is when the San Francisco Department of Public Health starts to require proof of vaccination for large indoor events. Wiggins explained to the media that his “Back is definitely against the wall, but I’m going to keep fighting for what I believe,… I’m going to keep fighting for what I believe is right. What’s right to one person isn’t right to the other and vice versa.”
Wiggins will stand to lose more than $350,000 per game and if he doesn’t play any home games, he would surrender half of his $31.6 million salary. Some of his teammates are offering their support but it would mean not having a starting forward for home games. Stephen Curry spoke on the situation as “not ideal” and he hopes Wiggins changes his mind.
