  • Warriors' James Wiseman: Full clearance weeks away

    The Warriors' training staff has targeted Friday as the date 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

    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 Warriors announced Monday that 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: Should be ready for camp

    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.

  • Warriors' James Wiseman: Undergoes surgery for meniscal tear

    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.

  • Warriors' James Wiseman: Undergoing surgery this week

    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.

  • Warriors' James Wiseman: Suffers torn meniscus

    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.
