Golden State Warriors rookie center James Wiseman suffered a tear to the meniscus in his right knee and could miss the rest of the season, sources told ESPN.
Wiseman, the No. 2 overall pick in the 2020 NBA draft, underwent imaging Sunday for an injury suffered on Saturday night. Further consultation with doctors is expected to result with a plan of action on the injury and a timeline for return, sources told ESPN.
Wiseman, 20, suffered the injury in the second quarter of Saturday’s victory over Houston when he elevated for a dunk and landed awkwardly after Rockets forward Kenyon Martin Jr. blocked him.
Wiseman is averaging 11.5 points and 5.8 rebounds in 21 minutes per game this season. He missed three weeks in February with a wrist injury.
