ICYMI: If Wiggins is not fully vaccinated by Oct. 13, Warriors could have home-court DISadvantage due to San Francisco COVID protocols. nbcsports.com/bayarea/warrio…10:40 PM

Wiggins still not going to the David Guetta concert is concerning for the Warriors… – 10:40 PM

I have a hard time believing that Ben Simmons will NOT be traded before training camp opens. The way I see it, deal to #Rockets for John Wall or to #Warriors for Andrew Wiggins most likely. #Sixers may be forced to include Tyrese Maxey, a Rich Paul client. Houston has extra picks – 5:40 AM

San Francisco requires full vaccination to be allowed indoors for entertainment, including large events like NBA games at 18,000-seat Chase Center. New York City is the only other NBA market currently facing such restrictions. League sources believe the NBA will grant Wiggins a religious exemption, but San Francisco has the power to override it inside the city. -via San Francisco Chronicle / September 23, 2021

The Warriors recently connected Wiggins with an Oakland doctor who understands issues surrounding vaccine hesitancy, sources said. The doctor explained the suffering and deaths she has witnessed in patients who contracted the coronavirus, sources said, but Wiggins remains unmoved in his decision against vaccination. -via San Francisco Chronicle / September 23, 2021

Joe Mussatto: The Thunder will require full or partial COVID vaccinations for fans, or a negative test 72 hours prior to a game, the team announced. -via Twitter @joe_mussatto / September 21, 2021
