Golden State Warriors’ big James Wiseman suffered a torn meniscus, per Shams Charania of the Athletic. The rookie will likely miss the rest of the season.
Wiseman fell awkwardly in the Warriors’ win over the Houston Rockets on Saturday night, eventually exiting the game and appearing to be in considerable pain.
Wiseman has averaged 11.5 points and 5.8 rebounds per game over his rookie season. The Warriors are considerably undermanned in the center position being down to just one healthy five on the roster in Kevon Looney.
The Warriors add another major injury blow to their list as they are trying to secure a place in the play-in tournament in the Western Conference.
