The NBA is allowing teams to sign players to hardship contracts due to the surge in COVID-19 cases caused by the Omicron variant. Teams are allowed to sign one hardship player for each player they have in the health and safety protocols. The Warriors currently have both Andrew Wiggins and Jordan Poole in the health and safety protocols.

The Warriors will take the court next on Thursday when they face the Memphis Grizzlies at Chase Center.
