James Wiseman of the Warriors had knee arthroscopy


After being selected with the No.2 pick in the 2020 NBA Draft, James Wiseman’s rookie campaign ended after 39 games with a meniscus injury.

The Memphis Tigers product has yet to be adapted for a game in its second campaign as it continues to work its way through a lengthy rehab. Wiseman’s initial surgery took place in April 2021, but reportedly required an undisclosed operation on his injured knee.

According to Anthony Slater of Athletic, Wiseman underwent knee arthroscopy in mid-December, delaying his return to court.

Via Athletic:

Another previously unreported surgery was required. Due to minor but persistent swelling, Wiseman needed a stretch and cleanse in mid-December, flushing out some loose bodies, sources confirm, which slowed his planned return.

Going through @anthonyVslater on Twitter:

Slater reported that Wiseman “is now heading for full contact activity.” Wiseman recently traveled with the Warriors on road trips.

As a rookie, Wiseman averaged 11.5 points on 51.9 percent shots from the field with 5.8 rebounds and 0.9 blocks in 21.4 minutes per game.

Without Wiseman in the rotation, the Warriors will continue to rely on Kevon Looney, Draymond Green, Nemanja Bjelica, Jonathan Kuminga and others in the first zone.
