An update on James Wiseman surfaced Wednesday afternoon.

The Warriors' rookie center will undergo surgery either Thursday or Friday, league sources told The Athletic's Anthony Slater.

Wiseman sustained a torn meniscus in his right knee early in the second quarter of the Warriors' win over the Houston Rockets last Saturday night.

How long will he be sidelined? We still don't know at this point.

"The results of the surgery will determine the expected return timetable, which ranges from a shorter 4-6-week absence to a possible multi-month recovery that would severely limit his offseason availability," Slater wrote. "The imaging on Wiseman’s knee is inconclusive."

The No. 2 overall pick in the 2020 draft is averaging 11.5 points, 5.8 rebounds and 0.9 blocks through 39 games, while shooting 52 percent overall and 62.8 percent from the free throw line.

It seems likely he will not play again this season, but we should get official word on that later this week.
