Golden State Warriors center James Wiseman (knee) is expected to return at some point during the 2021-22 campaign. Although an exact date will be determined based on his progress in rehab, fantasy managers may certainly benefit by stashing him until he returns. The 2020 second-overall pick out of Memphis averaged 11.5 points and 5.8 rebounds last year before his season was derailed by a tear in his right meniscus, requiring surgery. His health will be a concern moving ahead. However, if Wiseman can remain on the court after he makes it back, he could conceivably surpass his statistical output from what fantasy managers received during his rookie campaign.
Golden State Warriors center James Wiseman (knee) is expected to be available for the 2021-22 campaign. "He's right on schedule for everything and, as of now, [the] medical team tells me he will be ready for camp," reported head coach Steve Kerr. The 20-year-old, who was the No. 2 overall pick in the 2020 NBA Draft, underwent surgery to repair the meniscus in his right knee back in April. He averaged 11.5 points and 5.8 boards last season throughout 39 games, although he didn't live up to his pre-draft hype. Nonetheless, he is deserving of a look during upcoming fantasy drafts, although he isn't worth a reach from fantasy managers. However, that could change, primarily if he gets dealt during the offseason and becomes a top offensive option elsewhere.
Golden State Warriors center James Wiseman (knee) is expected to miss the rest of the regular season. He suffered a torn meniscus in his right knee on Saturday. The Warriors will have Wiseman visit with doctors in a few days, but it sounds like Wiseman won't play again this season. A big blow to the Warriors who continue losing their star players to season-ending injuries. Juan Toscano-Anderson will likely see the biggest boost from the loss of Wiseman. Kevon Looney and Draymond Green could see an uptick as well going forward.
Golden State Warriors center James Wiseman (health and safety protocols) and forward Eric Paschall (health and safety protocols) have been cleared to play on Tuesday against the 76ers. Both players will return to the court after missing three games in the protocols. It's unclear what kind of workload they'll get, though it wouldn't be surprising to see a minutes restriction for both of them. Draymond Green will return to his natural power forward position, while Juan Toscano-Anderson and Alen Smailagic will see reduced roles.
