James Wiseman will start at center for the Golden State Warriors for the remainder of the season, replacing Kevon Looney.
“I anticipate James is going to start the rest of the season,” Kerr said. “That’s the thought. You never know how things play out, but there’s 29 games left. It feels like a good time to get him into the lineup. We’ve tried a lot of different lineups, as you well know. Not so much starting lineups.
“We’ve been pretty consistent with our starters, but we’ve tried a lot of different rotations. We just feel like, after 40-plus games or wherever we are, James has come along really well. He’s picked up a lot of the concepts. It’s really important now, especially given the absences — missing the 10-11 games with the wrist, the last three games with COVID protocol — he needs to be out there.”
Wiseman started Golden State's first 16 games.
