    Warriors' James Wiseman: Still not cleared for 5-on-5 work

    Golden State Warriors head coach Steve Kerr said Sunday that James Wiseman (knee) hasn't yet been cleared for 5-on-5 work, Malika Andrews of ESPN.com reports.While Kerr hasn't suggested that Wiseman is dealing with a setback following April surgery on his right knee, the second-year big man may be plateauing in his recovery, given that he's been taking part in 3-on-3 work for at least two weeks without moving on to the next phase of his rehab. Golden State hasn't yet offered up a target date for Wiseman to make his 2021-22 debut, but based on where he currently stands in his rehab program, fantasy managers probably shouldn't expect him to be ready to play for at least another week.

    Warriors' James Wiseman: Not ready for 5-on-5 work

    Golden State Warriors head coach Steve Kerr said Tuesday that James Wiseman (knee) hasn't yet been cleared for 5-on-5, full-contact work, Anthony Slater of The Athletic reports.Wiseman is believed to have advanced to taking part in 3-on-3 drills, but the second-year center apparently isn't ready to move on to the next phase of his rehab from April surgery to address a meniscus tear in his right knee. Barring any setbacks in the next few days, the 20-year-old should be ready for 5-on-5 work next week. He'll likely need several practices to build up strength in the knee before the Warriors are ready to clear him for his season debut, perhaps at some point in late November or early December.

    Warriors' James Wiseman: Moving toward 3-on-3 work

    James Wiseman (knee) is expected to progress to participating in 3-on-3 work in the coming week, Monte Poole of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.The Golden State Warriors continue to bring last season's No. 2 overall pick along slowly, and coach Steve Kerr noted Sunday that Wiseman will not travel with the team on its upcoming road swing, which begins next Monday (Nov. 14) at Charlotte. With that in mind, Wiseman will miss at least eight more games, meaning his debut won't come until Nov. 21 (vs. Toronto) at the absolute earliest.

    Warriors' James Wiseman: Full clearance weeks away

    The Golden State Warriors' training staff has targeted Friday as the date James Wiseman should be able to start jumping and working out at full speed, and a "full clearance" is expected in the next couple weeks, Anthony Slater of The Athletic reports.While it sounds like Wiseman could get back into games as soon as early November, there's also the possibility, Slater reports, that the center could spend time in the G League in closed-door scrimmages or possibly full games. It doesn't seem too likely the center would spend a significant chunk of time in Santa Cruz, however. For as much as he struggled as a rookie, especially given his draft pedigree, Wiseman certainly figures to be a useful rotation player for the Warriors this season in some capacity. Ultimately, it seems like he'll often spend time with the bench unit this season, where he can better demonstrate his upside, and his mistakes aren't as harmful. Notably, Golden State brought in a new assistant coach, Dejan Milojevic, who is doing a lot of work to develop Wiseman into a more well-rounded player. Milojevic was a head coach in Serbia where his Mega Basket program helped produce the likes of Nikola Jokic, Ivica Zubac and Boban Marjanovic.

    Warriors' James Wiseman: No timetable for return

    James Wiseman (knee) remains without a firm return timetable, though he will not participate in any full-contact work during training camp, Anthony Slater of The Athletic reports.At Monday's media day, Wiseman said he's been running at "50 or 60 percent" while working on ramping up his lateral movement. Per a release from the team last week, Wiseman will be limited throughout training camp and will not be cleared to return to "full jumping" until at least Oct. 15. At that point, the second-year big man will be re-evaluated and a more concrete timetable should be available. As of now, it's rather unlikely that Wiseman returns to game action before November.

    Warriors' James Wiseman: Could miss start of season

    The Golden State Warriors announced Monday that James Wiseman is making good progress in his recovery from right knee surgery but could still miss the first few weeks of the 2021-22 regular season while finishing his rehab.The team notes the big man is on track to begin full jumping in mid-October, and he's expected to take part in solo shooting and individual drills during training camp. A firm timetable for full clearance will be determined based on how his body responds as he ramps up basketball activities. Kevon Looney will be the favorite to start at center for the Warriors while Wiseman continues to rehab from the meniscus surgery he underwent in April.

    Warriors' James Wiseman: Undergoing surgery this week

    James 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.
