James Wiseman expected to return Tuesday

USA Today Sports

Golden State Warriors rookie center James Wiseman has been listed as probable for Tuesday’s matchup with the New York Knicks.

Wiseman practiced in full on Monday and is expected to take the floor in the Warriors’ next matchup.

The 19-year-old hasn’t played since January 30 due to a wrist injury, and he was a candidate for rookie of the year before it happened.

Teammate Kevon Looney was also a full participant in practice, and he’s expected to return as well from an ankle injury that’s sidelined him since February 2.

Wiseman has averaged 12.1 points, 6.1 rebounds, and 1.3 blocks per game in 20:56 minutes played in his rookie campaign.

The Warriors are currently the eighth seed in the western conference with a 16-15 record, so getting their big men back is great news for the team.
