Former number two draft pick James Wiseman had his rookie year ended prematurely by a meniscus injury that sidelined him for the entire 2022-2023 season.

He was not the first Warriors player who had to deal with a devastating injury. Klay Thompson returned to action this past season after missing two full seasons.

Wiseman revealed that he talked to the four-time NBA champion and took advice from him which helped him go through the rehab process.

Via Jarrod Castillo of NBC Sports:

“Some days weren’t good, but some days were great and he just took advantage of every moment,” Wiseman explained. “So when I was going through my rehab process, I took the same information … and I just added to my rehab.”
