After missing 11 games due to a sprained wrist, James Wiseman made his highly-anticipated return to the lineup on Tuesday in the Big Apple against the New York Knicks.

With a flurry of powerful dunks, the 2020 No. 2 overall draft pick tallied 14 points on 6-of-9 shooting in 14 minutes off the bench in Golden State’s 114-105 victory over the Knicks. Following his high flying effort at Madison Square Garden, Wiseman displayed a different tool during Golden State’s trip to Indiana.

Heading into the final contest of the Warriors’ four-game road swing, Wiseman laced up against Domantas Sabonis, Myles Turner and the Indiana Pacers.

After checking in during the first quarter, Wiseman pulled up from beyond the arc for a triple. With 3:37 remaining in the opening quarter, the Memphis product drilled a jumper from beyond the arc to give the Warriors a three-point lead.
