Golden State Warriors rookie James Wiseman will undergo surgery on his right knee Thursday or Friday, sources told The Athletic's Anthony Slater.

A timetable for his return won't be known until after the procedure. However, the 20-year-old is expected to miss at least four-to-six weeks, Slater notes. A multi-month recovery lasting through the offseason would be the worst-case scenario.

Wiseman reportedly suffered a torn meniscus in Saturday's win over the Houston Rockets. Golden State apparently fears he'll miss the rest of the 2020-21 campaign.

Under a four-to-six-week timeframe, Wiseman would likely be out for the remainder of the regular season, though he could potentially return for the playoffs if the Warriors qualify.

Golden State drafted Wiseman second overall last year. He's averaging 11.5 points and 5.8 rebounds this season while starting in 27 of 39 games. The Memphis product has shown flashes of his potential as a rookie but has been unlucky with injuries; he missed 11 games in February after spraining his left wrist.
