James Wiseman was the No. 2 overall pick in the 2020 NBA Draft, and he showed some good flashes during his rookie season. Wiseman is an athletic big man who is a good finisher at the rim, and he has shown signs of shooting ability.

The Golden State Warriors are contenders this season, but one of the holes that have been pointed out on their roster is the lack of a big man who can provide size and finishing ability at the rim. James Wiseman could potentially fill that hole when he returns from injury. Even if he is a bench player this year, he could provide an impact offensively.

It has recently been revealed that James Wiseman should be returning around early March. This will certainly provide a boost for the franchise, and there's no question that it's been a long wait for Warriors fans.

This season, James Wiseman should in theory be more acclimated to the NBA pace as he's had a year in the league. Last season, there were times where he had lapses on the defensive end, and perhaps we'll see less of those this year. James Wiseman had a mixed start to the league, but there are definitely people who believe in his potential and ability.

It is scary to imagine that the Golden State Warriors could potentially get even better with James Wiseman's return. They have been a well-oiled machine this year under Stephen Curry's leadership, and they have kept going even with a long-term absence from Draymond Green. Hopefully, they are able to continue winning over this last stretch of the season, and perhaps we could even see them finish with the No. 1 overall seed in the Western Conference.

It will be exciting to see Stephen Curry in the playoffs once again. The Warriors have a championship-caliber squad when healthy, but perhaps James Wiseman can be the piece that puts them over the top in the future.
