Andrew Wiggins (ribs) is expected to try and play in Game 6 vs the Lakers. He will participate in pregame warmups and see how he feels prior to game time.

Charania added that Golden State is leaning toward Wiggins coming off the bench in a 20-to-25 minute playing time role. He will be eased back as expected, but getting Wiggins back either way is huge as the Warriors seek a repeat.
Warriors GM Bob Myers said Andrew Wiggins scrimmaged on Tuesday and "looked good."
"All indications are he'll be able to go, but not sure how many minutes he'll get," Myers said. He will likely be eased back into action after missing the last two months of the regular season, but getting Wiggins back in any capacity is huge for a Warriors team looking to repeat.
Andrew Wiggins is expected to return to the Golden State Warriors sometime this week.
Wiggins has been out an extended period due to personal reasons. Despite having Steph Curry, Klay Thompson, and Draymond Green while he was out, the defending champions have been relying on younger players more than they would like, and adding Wiggins back into the fold gives them yet another productive veteran to help them close the season strong. Wiggins has averaged 17.3 points, 5 rebounds and 2.3 assists per game in 37 games played this season.
