The Warriors are currently 25-28, hold a nonessential lead over the New Orleans Pelicans for the West’s final play-in spot but. The team’s brass concerns that the injury will hold James Wiseman out for the rest of the 2020-21 season and, probably the postseason as well.

The expected lengthened cut makes affairs more difficult for a Warriors team that has been without Klay Thompson all season due to a torn Achilles tendon.
