As he continues his rehab from a meniscus injury that cut his rookie season short, James Wiseman will be a limited participant at the Golden State Warriors training camp before the 2021-22 season.

In a recent update, the Warriors said Wiseman is making “good progress” with his rehab, but he isn’t scheduled to start fully jumping until Oct. 15 – just two days before Golden State’s season opener.

At day one of the Warriors’ training camp, Wiseman was putting in work with new assistant coach Dejan Milojevic. The 2020 No. 2 overall was going through light drills in the post with Milojevic. Wiseman was also working on his footwork with Milojevic.

Via @KylenMills on Twitter:

Prior to joining Steve Kerr’s staff in the Bay Area, Milojevic served as the head coach of KK Mega Basket in the Adriatic League. 2021 NBA Most Valuable Player Nikola Jokic played for Milojevic at KK Megas Basket before getting drafted by the Denver Nuggets. Milojevic will likely have a heavy impact in Wiseman’s development in his sophomore season.

As a rookie, the 19-year-old center averaged 11.5 points on 51.9% shooting from the field with 5.8 rebounds and 0.9 blocks in 21.4 minutes per game.
