MILWAUKEE — There is an explanation for James Wiseman’s ever-elongating absence from the injury that ended his rookie season.
The 20-year-old, 7-foot center underwent surgery in December, eight months after the original procedure on the torn meniscus in his right knee that he suffered against the Houston Rockets in April, according to multiple reports.He is just now nearing clearance to participate in 3-on-3 scrimmages, the reports said, possibly extending his absence through the All-Star break in mid-February.
Wiseman’s status has loomed in the background as Klay Thompson progressed toward playing again in recent months. There was originally a belief within the organization that Wiseman could see the court before Thompson, but that has come and passed with Thompson making his debut Sunday.
Entering the season, the Warriors said they were optimistic that Wiseman would be able to participate in training camp. Then in November said the plan was for him to participate in scrimmages along with Thompson.
However, neither timeline came to fruition. Now, there is an explanation for why.

James Harden Plays Dumb to Rumors that Hes Unhappy with Kyrie Irving and the Nets: I Dont Know About No Reports
James Harden forced a trade to the Brooklyn Nets to pair with Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving to form a Big Three. Currently, he’s faced with the reality that it’s just the Big One-And-A-Half.
With Durant out for up to six weeks after suffering a knee injury and Irving playing in road games only, Harden is forced to carry a larger work load than the one he signed up for.
This week, Bleacher Report claimed Harden is unhappy in Brooklyn and frustrated by Irving’s status as a part-time player. Irving is barred from entering the Nets’ arena for home games because he refuses to get vaccinated against Covid.
Following their loss to the Los Angeles Lakers Tuesday night, Harden played dumb when asked about the rumors that he’s already planning his exit from Brooklyn at season’s end.
“I don’t know what you’re talking about. You’re talking about reports, I don’t know about no reports. Did you guys hear it from me?” Harden asked reporters rhetorically.
“I don’t know about any reports,” Harden continued when asked a second time. “Of course I’m frustrated, because we’re not healthy, there’s a lot of inconsistencies for whatever reason: injuries, Covid, whatever you want to call it. But yeah, it’s frustrating.
“I think everyone in this organization is frustrated, because we are better than what our record is and we should be on the way up. That’s all it is. I don’t know about any reports. If you didn’t hear it from me, I don’t talk to nobody. I have an agent. If you don’t hear it from me, then it’s reports.”
Harden has waved off “reports” before in his career, most notably when he was with the Houston Rockets and he was reportedly unhappy with Dwight Howard, Chris Paul and Russell Westbrook on separate occasions. Dwight Howard, Chris Paul and Russell Westbrook were all eventually traded away from the Rockets.
