Warriors’ James Wiseman Undergoes Knee Surgery, Out for the Year

With LaMelo Ball already out for the season with a hand injury, another promising young rookie will miss the remainder of his team’s games as well.

Golden State Warriors’ big man James Wiseman has undergone successful surgery to repair his meniscus on Thursday and will miss the remainder of his team’s games. The former second overall pick is expected to be ready for the start of the 2021-22 season after a successful yet shortened rookie campaign.

“He puts on a brave face,” Warriors Head Coach Kerr said of Wiseman. “Obviously, we saw him [Tuesday] at practice and had a chance to visit with him, and he’s in relatively good spirits, but he’s putting on a brave face for sure. He’s a young guy — this isn’t supposed to happen so early in someone’s career. So it’s a tough time for sure. So fingers are crossed, and we’ll see how everything goes [Thursday].”

The 20-year old has averaged 11.8 points and 5.8 rebounds per game this season while registering just a tick over 20 minutes per contest.

The injury battered Warriors are sitting half a game out of the final playoff spot in the Western Conference.
