ESPN reported Wiseman suffered a torn right meniscus in an awkward landing in the second quarter of the Warriors’ 125-109 victory over the Houston Rockets on Saturday night.

The 20-year-old Wiseman, who was the second overall pick in last year’s NBA draft, was heading for the rim and after catching a pass rose to attempt a dunk.
