Warriors rookie James Wiseman out for season
Golden State rookie center James Wiseman, the second overall pick in the NBA draft, will miss the rest of the season after right knee surgery, the Warriors confirmed on Thursday.
“James Wiseman underwent successful surgery today to repair a right meniscal tear,” the team said in a statement.
“James will begin rehab immediately and will miss the remainder of the 2020-21 season. He is expected to return for the 2021-22 campaign. An update on his progress will be provided in September.”
Houston’s KJ Martin blocked the shot and Wiseman, off-balance, landed hard and hit the deck near the basket stanchion.
Wiseman’s rookie season, in which he was averaging 11.5 points and 5.8 rebounds per game, had already been interrupted by a wrist injury that saw him miss time in February.
