  • Warriors' James Wiseman: Returns to action in Las Vegas

    Wiseman finished Sunday's Las Vegas Summer League game against the Spurs with 11 points (5-7 FG, 1-1 3Pt), two rebounds, two blocks and three turnovers in 20 minutes of action.

    This was Wiseman's first time playing in a sanctioned NBA game since he appeared in three G League games in March, so it's a fairly significant step for the No. 2 overall pick in the 2020 NBA Draft. Athletically, Wiseman looked as good as ever -- he had a monster alley-oop dunk to begin the game and an emphatic block at the rim later in the first quarter -- which is ultimately the most important outcome considering he underwent surgery on his right knee in April of 2021 and missed the entire 2021-22 NBA season. The Warriors will likely continue to handle Wiseman with some level of caution throughout Summer League, but the hope is that he's fully back up to speed to begin training camp in the fall. If Wiseman proves he can stay healthy, he'll be one of the most interesting and difficult-to-value players in the league when it comes to fantasy.

  • Warriors' James Wiseman: Will play Sunday

    Wiseman (knee) will make his 2022 Summer League debut Sunday against the Spurs, Anthony Slater of The Athletic reports.

    This is a huge step for Wiseman, who missed all of last season due to meniscus surgery that didn't heal as expected. The Warriors have seemingly been cautious with him as well, but it's finally time to get him back on the court. As a rookie in 2020-21, the center averaged 11.5 points, 5.8 rebounds and 0.9 blocks in 21.4 minutes.

  • Warriors' James Wiseman: Could play in Las Vegas

    Wiseman (knee) went through a full scrimmage Thursday with the Warriors' Las Vegas Summer League team, Anthony Slater of The Athletic reports.

    The Warriors have been mostly quiet about Wiseman's progress as he continues to work back from knee surgery, but it's encouraging to see him back on the floor in a full-contact setting. Earlier in the week, the Warriors noted that Wiseman likely won't play in Friday's Las Vegas Summer League opener, but the team intimated that it hopes to have the big man available for at least a few games in Vegas. If that happens, it will be Wiseman's first official game action since April of 2021.

The 21-year-old is on track to appear in the Las Vegas Summer League as long as he continues to progress smoothly in his recovery.

  • Warriors' James Wiseman: Nearing return to full-contact work

    Wiseman (knee) is nearing clearance for full contact and there remains optimism that he'll be available to return during Summer League in July, Shams Charania of The Athletic reports.

    Wiseman seems to be progressing well in his recovery, as he has recently "increased his court activity and is now sprinting for pain-free stretches," according to Charania and Anthony Slater of The Athletic. An update regarding his official status ahead of Summer League is said to be coming in the next two weeks, but it appears his recovery is on track and he may be able to return to the court in July, barring any setbacks.
