Wiseman, a rookie, hurt his knee on Saturday night when the Warriors played the Houston Rockets. It happened in the second quarter when Wiseman caught a pass on his way to the basket. He jumped up to make a big slam, but was blocked by KJ Martin. He was blocked so fiercely that he fell to the side and landed hard, mostly unable to brace himself. He was clearly hurting when he got up, and left the game and didn't return.

There's reportedly no timetable on his return yet, but there's a chance he could miss the rest of the regular season. If Wiseman has a meniscus tear, it could take 6-8 weeks to heal. If the 25-28 Warriors are one of the four Western Conference teams that participate in the play-in games before the playoffs, it's possible Wiseman could return then. If not, that might be the last time we see him until next season.
