Golden State still doesn’t know when James Wiseman will play

The same coach of the Golden State Warriors, Steve Kerr, commented that the date for the second-year pivot, James Wiseman, return to play a game in the NBA is still unknown, as he continues to recover from a meniscus tear from a knee suffered in the past year.

In a video posted by Anthony Slater, a journalist for The Athletic, the Warriors head coach could be heard saying that they were being extremely cautious to avoid a relapse.

“His injury cannot be measured, because it is very different from injuries like cruciate ligament, that you can determine a certain recovery period from the beginning. James is fine, doing one-on-one, two-on-two drills, but the doctors are still not comfortable letting him compete in a 5-on-5, “said Kerr.

Wiseman had a remarkable first season, after being chosen in the second position of the Draft de 2020, averaging 11.5 points, 5.8 rebounds, and almost one block per game (0.9), in 39 games played, 27 as a starter, with 21.4 minutes of play on average.

“We are trying to be patient, to try to do the best we can for James, who is a young boy, and we want to be very cautious about his injury”; Kerr added.

The Warriors are the best team in the entire NBA, leaders of the Western Conference, with a record of 15 wins and only 2 losses, having won their last 4 games in a row.
