The rookie center will not be returning against Orlando.
When the Golden State Warriors announced that rookie center James Wiseman would be missing time with a sprained wrist, they listed Feb. 11 as the date for re-evaluation. But it turns out that re-evaluation will come in the evening.
Wiseman will remain out against the Orlando Magic tonight, with a re-evaluation update coming later in the day.

This will be the sixth game that Wiseman has missed since the injury. In the Warriors first game that he missed, Kevon Looney suffered a sprained ankle, and he’s still sidelined. As such, it will be the fifth straight game that the Dubs have had to play without any healthy center, as Marquese Chriss (broken leg) and Alen Smailagić (torn meniscus) are also injured.
While the Warriors have looked great at times playing small, they do miss their No. 2 overall pick, who is averaging 12.2 points, 6.1 rebounds, and 1.3 blocks per game, while shooting 40.9% from three-point range.
