It’s nights like tonight the Warriors wish they had Wiseman. Looney just picked up 2 early fouls, and Golden State don’t have many big, agile bodies to put on Giannis. – 7:36 PM

James Wiseman underwent an arthroscopic procedure on his right knee in mid-December, which helps always why he has yet to get cleared for 3-on-3 work. (h/t @Anthony Slater) sfchronicle.com//sports/warrio…7:04 PM

James Wiseman had arthroscopic surgery on his knee in mid December to relieve swelling, per sources. He’s advancing toward being cleared for contact, but that’s what has stalled his Warriors return the last month.

COLUMN: At James Wiseman’s East HS jersey retirement, a complicated and incomplete Memphis legacy was celebrated. There have now been as many James Wiseman days declared in the city as games he played for the Tigers at FedExForum.

More on this storyline

But the Warriors pumped the brakes on clearing Wiseman for full contact and, as the next several weeks turned into a month and beyond, would only say that Wiseman was still waiting for Rick Celebrini to clear him for contact. That’s because he needed that arthroscopic surgery, which pulled him out of any strenuous activity. Wiseman has spent the past month building toward full-contact activity. It’s generally trending in the right direction. He is now back on road trips with the Warriors, doing individual work and, according to Steve Kerr, expected to be cleared for some three-on-three and eventually five-on-five work in the days and weeks ahead. -via The Athletic / January 13, 2022
