Warriors vs Kings game 1 injury report: Will Andrew Wiggins play?
The Golden State Warriors will start their playoffs with a No-Cal derby against the Sacramento Kings, and we take a look at the lineups.
All eyes heading into this Game 1 matchup between the Warriors and Kings will be firmly fixed on Andrew Wiggins. He hasn’t played since mid-February and has told media that it was in relation to a serious medical situation with his father.
The Warriors are reportedly leaning toward playing him off the bench rather than putting him in the starting lineup. Jordan Poole, Gary Payton II and Jonathan Kuminga will all likely join him in being available off the bench.
The only injuries reported by the Warriors are Andre Iguodala who is out after having surgery on his left wrist, and Ryan Rollins who is out with a right ankle sprain.
Over on the other side, the Kings are fairly healthy, reporting only Matthew Dellavedova out for surgery on his right index finger.
The Warriors come into this contest the number six seed while the Kings are seeded number three. Despite the seeding, the Warriors have been dominating the Kings lately, going 9-4 in the last 13 meetings. While the game is a toss-up on paper, the Kings might have their best team in decades and we reckon that they will win it in six games.
