Wiseman's knee recovery is on schedule and he is expected to be ready for training camp, Anthony Slater of The Athletic reports. Following a strong start to his rookie season, Wiseman was forced to end his season early after suffering a torn meniscus that required surgery. According to coach Steve Kerr, the second overall pick of the 2020 NBA Draft will be healthy and ready for training camp in September.
Wiseman underwent surgery for a right meniscal tear Thursday and will miss the rest of the season. It was already believed to be the case, but Golden State made it official Thursday after surgery that Wiseman would miss the rest of the season. The team will provide an update on his progress in September, and he will return for the 2021-22 campaign. Kevon Looney has slotted in as the starting center with Wiseman sidelined.
Wiseman (knee) will undergo right knee surgery Thursday or Friday, Anthony Slater of The Athletic reports. The surgery results will determine his timetable, which could be as short as 4-to-6 weeks or as long as multiple months. Meniscus tears are complicated and can be surgically treated by a trim or a repair. A trim results in a shorter timetable, while the repair has a longer timetable but can be better for the knee's long-term health. If a repair is performed, that could certainly cut into Wiseman's offseason development. As Slater notes, the Grizzlies' Jaren Jackson has been out eight months with a repaired meniscus. More information should be available once the surgery is performed. While Wiseman's out, Kevon Looney should see increased run.
Wiseman was diagnosed with a torn meniscus in his right knee after exiting Saturday's 125-109 win over the Rockets, Shams Charania of The Athletic reports. The Warriors fear he will miss the remainder of the season. Wiseman played just six minutes Saturday before exiting, with a follow-up MRI confirming the rookie center suffered a severe knee injury. With a little more than a month to go in the regular season, the 20-year-old's first season in the NBA is likely over, regardless of whether he needs surgery to address the injury. Over 39 games during his rookie campaign, Wiseman averaged 11.5 points on 51.9 percent shooting, 5.8 rebounds and 0.9 blocks per game. Kevon Looney will likely step back into a starting role at center.
Wiseman will undergo an MRI after leaving Saturday's game against the Rockets with a right knee injury, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports. The rookie first-round pick exited after playing only six minutes during Saturday's matchup with the Rockets. Wiseman should be considered questionable for Monday's game versus the Nuggets until the results of the MRI are announced.
