(KRON) — Golden State Warriors forward Andrew Wiggins will miss the team’s game against the New York Knicks on Thursday with a personal matter, and the team is unsure when he will return. Steve Kerr said on 95.7 The Game Wednesday that the team does expect the former All-Star back at some point, but a timetable has not been established.

Wiggins missed the final 25 games of the 2022-23 regular season with another undisclosed personal matter. Thursday’s Knicks game will be the second straight that he missed with this matter.

Kerr said Wednesday that the team will not disclose the nature of his absence at Wiggins’ request.

“We’re in a position where Wiggs is a private person,” Kerr said, “and so he’s asked to keep it private, and we’re gonna honor that. So it doesn’t help for me to sit here and try to explain any of that. The bottom line is we respect Wiggs, we need him, and we fully expect him back, but we just don’t know when that will be.”

Wiggins has averaged just 12.7 points per game this season, the lowest number of his career. However, he scored at least 10 points in each of his last nine games, helping the Warriors win seven of those contests.

Even with the recent hot streak, Golden State sits in ninth place in the Western Conference with a 30-27 record. They would have to move up to sixth place for a guaranteed spot in the NBA playoffs.
