An MRI did not reveal good news for Golden State Warriors rookie center James Wiseman, who exited Saturday's 125-109 win over the Houston Rockets with a knee injury.
According to The Athletic's Shams Charania, the Warriors fear that Wiseman will miss the remainder of the season with a torn meniscus in his right knee:
Wiseman suffered the injury during the second quarter of Saturday's game after going up for a dunk and landing awkwardly on his leg. The 20-year-old's knee hit the floor hard, and he got up slowly before exiting the court.

Wiseman was having a solid rookie season before suffering the injury, averaging 11.5 points, 5.8 rebounds and 0.7 assists per game while shooting 51.9% from the field and 31.6% from deep.
