The Golden State Warriors and James Wiseman had an up and down first season together. Wiseman missed training camp due to COVID-19 and then was placed in the starting lineup on opening night only to have his minutes fluctuate wildly before he was eventually lost to the season with a torn meniscus.
"I have no doubt James is going to make a huge impact in this league," Steve Kerr said prior to the Warriors' game against the Utah Jazz at Chase Center. "He's gonna be a helluva player, but it takes time and you can't rush that process, unfortunately. It just has to happen on its own time, so he'll get there, but we'll just have to keep working with him. The good thing is he's a great student, and he's a hard worker and got a great approach. I have great belief in James."
