NBA Denies Religious Exemptions For Player Who Refuses Vaccine

Like Love Haha Wow Sad Angry

The NBA has denied Golden State Warriors’ forward Andrew Wiggins’ request for a religious exemption from COVID-19 vaccine mandates, the New York Times reported.

The new ruling means that Wiggins, the first pick in the 2014 NBA draft, will be barred from attending home games in San Francisco this upcoming season unless he gets vaccinated.

The city’s government last month mandated that citizens show proof of vaccination to attend large indoor events, not allowing negative COVID-19 tests as an alternate option.

Wiggins will also likely be barred from participating in games against the New York Knicks and the Brooklyn Nets on the road due to New York City’s similar vaccination mandate enacted last month.
