Watch Wiseman drill three straight corner 3s at Warriors camp

Warriors

You want to watch a video of James Wiseman making three straight left corner 3-pointers, right?

Of course you do.

So here you are:

The belief is that the 19-year-old at some point in his career will extend his range to beyond the 3-point line.

"He's been working on that for the last 10 months in Miami," Penny Hardaway told NBC Sports Bay Area the night the Warriors selected Wiseman with the No. 2 overall pick in the draft. "He started working with me on it his senior year in high school, cuz he used to shoot the ball back behind his head, and then he moved it out in front of him and more of a higher shot.

"So, he was serious about understanding that he was going to have to get his jumpshot better to be able to stretch the floor, and he's worked on that. 

"He's only going to get better, because he'll be shooting shots with Steph [Curry] after practice or Klay [Thompson] after practice or anyone else that's after practice shooting shots, he's going to be right there with them. He's a workaholic."

Wiseman missed Warriors practice for the fourth straight day Thursday as he has not yet been cleared for full participation.

Steve Kerr told the media the 7-foot-1 center did some "very limited and light" individual work before practice started.

"This is just the early stages of him being able to get back out on the court," Kerr explained. "He got a few shots up, but that's about it.

"It's unfortunate because these are very important practices this week. The only thing we've been able to do is have him sit and watch practice, and then watch film with the team and individually.

"As soon as he's on the court, we'll do as much as we can to get him up to speed."

Wiseman has not played in an official game since Nov. 12, 2019 when his Memphis Tigers lost to the Oregon Ducks.
