The Golden State Warriors may seemingly be playoff bound this year after winning it all last season, but it has been a rough year for many different reasons.
Along with being one of the worst road teams in the NBA with an ugly record of 9-29 away from the Bay Area, the team has had to battle through their title defense without one of their best defenders, Andrew Wiggins.
Wiggins has been dealing with off-the-floor issues, which has caused him to miss the majority of the season and play only 37 games thus far.
The rumors swirling around Wiggins’ absence have been linked to something going on with his girlfriend, and now things may be getting back to normal with his girlfriend taking to social media to hint at being back in the Bay Area.
In the post, she asks for recommendations for Bay area curly hair specialists.

This doesn’t mean that all is well and Wiggins will get back on the floor as soon as possible.
There’s no telling what is going on behind the scenes with Wiggins nor what his mindset may be moving forward regarding getting back on the floor for the Warriors with the postseason looming.
Although the Warriors are sitting in the five seed in the Western Conference and have won six of their last 10 games, the team desperately needs Wiggins back for the playoffs to have any hope of repeating.
Only time will tell whether Wiggins is ready to get back to work and if he can truly make an impact when the playoffs roll around for the defending NBA champions.NEXT: Warriors Star Announces A New Podcast
