A dozen members of the Golden State Warriors received a vaccine against COVID-19 on Wednesday, including head coach Steve Kerr and striker Draymond Green.
The warriors got their vaccines at Kaiser Permanente San Francisco in Mission Bay, just around the corner from the Chase Center. Participants received the unique Johnson & Johnson vaccine.
« We were only hit really hard as a team by the COVID logs, » Kerr said, referring to the recent games that James Wiseman, Eric Paschall and Kevon Looney missed due to the league’s health and safety protocols.
« So it will be nice to have as many people vaccinated as possible and hopefully not have any more problems with missing games. »
The NBA has not requested vaccination for players or staff, according to ESPN, but has encouraged them to do so once they are eligible. The league said it will relax health and safety protocols for those receiving the vaccine.

While it is not yet clear which players and staff received the vaccine, Andrew Wiggins and Kent Bazemore previously hesitated to get vaccinated.
« No, sir, » Bazemore said Wednesday, two days after Wiggins said he did not expect to receive the vaccine.
« I don’t really see myself being able to get it anytime soon, » said Wiggins, « unless I’m somehow forced to. »
The Warriors join the Atlanta Hawks, Miami Heat, New Orleans Pelicans, Portland Trail Blazers and Los Angeles Lakers as NBA teams who have confirmed they have received the vaccine or have plans to to get this.
