once did. right now 3-0 red sox in the fifth. andrew wiggins did get vaccinated and then explained his reluctance last night after the warriors preseason game. he says he tries to avoid putting chemicals in his body of any kind, adding he had an allergic reaction to some medicine a couple years ago and wiggins admitted if you needed surgery, he would take whatever medicine the doctors prescribed for him. but the unknowns of the vaccine in the long caused his reluctance to take the shot. >> it was a scary moment. i know a lot of people get reactions, who are getting reactions or injuries from getting the vaccination and also, just -- i don't know what it will do to me in 10 years. larry: klay thompson continuing his rehab from injury, is now apparently practicing to become a ninja. yeah. abc 7's sports
6:56 pm
team dr. from ucsf points out, the fact that klay can move on an uneven surface like sand is a very good sign in the recovery process. and he is looking pretty dangerous with the stick. all of that is good. i want to come back to the andrew wiggins story because beforehand, andrew wouldn't explain what his reluctance was all about. i was really happy he came out and said, i had something occur couple years ago and i didn't want to repeat that and that is why he was reluctant. a lot of people may feel that way. much better to say that then, i'm doing my own research on facebook or whatever nonsensical thing people are coming up with. he did get the shot. he had one day where he was under the weather, but appears to be fine now and full speed ahead for the warriors. dan: it is nice that he just told us his reasoning. larry: it is well thought out so
6:57 pm
i'm glad he did it. kristen: coming up tonight starting at 8:00, three hours of the bachelor in paradise, followed by abc 7 news at 11:00. that does it for this edition of abc 7 news. dan: for spencer and larry and everyone, we appreciate your time. have a nice evening. we will see you tonight at 11:00.
