Wiggins out for Warriors vs. Clippers as finger injury persists

NBC Universal, Inc.

Andrew Wiggins will not be on the floor for the Warriors as they face the Los Angeles Clippers in a Saturday matinee at Arena.

The Golden State forward has been ruled out for the second consecutive game with right finger soreness. Wiggins missed the Warriors' 120-114 win over the Clippers on Thursday at Chase Center after slamming his car door on the finger that morning.

Warriors coach Steve Kerr initially described the incident as a short-term injury for Wiggins, but just how long it will keep the 28-year-old sidelined remains to be seen.

The injury also comes at an inopportune time for Wiggins, who looked like himself in his last game, with a 29-point performance in Golden State's one-point loss to the Sacramento Kings on Tuesday.

The Warriors will look for their second victory in a row over the Clippers with a short-handed bench as well, as veterans Chris Paul (leg) and Gary Payton II (calf) also are out with injuries.
