Golden State, which was driven to the edge of the cliff with 1 win and 3 losses, revived by winning Game 5 at home. But there is still a long way to go. You have to win two more games in a row to advance to the conference finals.

Even with the victory, there was not only good news for Golden State in Game 5. This is because the main forward, Wiggins, was injured during the fourth quarter.

Wiggins collided with LeBron James during the boxing process with about five minutes left in the fourth quarter of Game 5. Wiggins, who suffered an unexpected injury, was captured holding his ribs and feeling pain.

Wiggins was diagnosed with a fractured left costal cartilage. Currently, his condition is questionable, which means that he has a 50% chance of appearing in Game 6. 

Although he is injured, Wiggins is expected to burn his will to play in Game 6 as the team is driven into an elimination game situation. Reporter Slater reported that “Andrew Wiggins was injured, but he talked optimistically after the end of Game 5 that he would be able to play in Game 6.”

If Wiggins doesn’t show his condition due to injury, it will be a big blow for Golden State. Wiggins, who has a considerable presence on both sides of the offense and defense, is acting as a full-time defender for LeBron, the core of the opponent. It’s not easy to replace Wiggins with his size and athleticism.

Will Wiggins really make an appearance in Game 6 like he said? Game 6 between Golden State and Lakers will be held on the 13th at the Los Angeles Arena.
