The latest blow came Saturday night. James Wiseman, who was building maybe the best rhythm of his rookie season, landed awkwardly on his right knee after his dunk attempt was stuffed by Kenyon Martin Jr. Wiseman immediately grabbed at it and grimaced in pain before walking around the court, attempting to shake off the pain. Kerr called timeout. Wiseman spent the break stretching it out and jogging. He was intent on staying in the game, but just before play resumed, director of sports medicine and performance Rick Celebrini pulled Wiseman off the court and took him to the locker room for further evaluation. He missed the rest of the game and is scheduled for an MRI to determine the extent of the injury.
