Andrew Wiggins confirmed during media day on Monday that he will not receive the COVID-19 vaccine and will forgo $8.9 million for the 41 regular season home games the Golden State Warriors play this season. The city of San Francisco currently has a vaccine mandate that prohibits players from the Warriors in playing in home games.

"I'm confident in my beliefs and what I think is right and what I think is wrong," said Wiggins.

Wiggins said his "back [is] against the wall" and that he plans to stick with his beliefs.
