James Wiseman Underwent Minor Surgery On Knee In December 

Post#1 » by RealGM Wiretap » Fri Jan 14, 2022 1:31 pm

James Wiseman underwent a minor surgery on his knee in mid-December, which has slowed his comeback.


Wiseman underwent surgery on his meniscus initially in April.


Wiseman's December surgery was a scope and cleanup to flush out some loose bodies. Wiseman has spent the past month building toward full-contact activity.


“His rehab is going really well,” Steve Kerr said. “His knee is feeling good. His spirits are up, he’s bouncing around practice — high energy. He’s getting ready to play with some contact. It’s exciting just to see a smile on his face and to see him back after this long of an absence.”

Nope, that would be Zion. I think this kid may play well after his helahty. The W's are taking the right track by giving him plenty of time to get right. I don't red lights flashing with him like Ii did with Oden or with Zion. Or Sam Bowie.

I think this kid will be fine. He's lucky he got drafted by GS because he doesn't need to be relied upon to make an immediate impact. Also what better place to develop as a young kid?

lol, this is his 1.5 year and he is not on a career ending injury, dude. Ever heard of a Joel Embiid? The guy who didn't play his first two years due to injury?
