James Wiseman hailed following his performance for the Warriors in the comeback against Spurs.

Golden State Warriors center James Wiseman receives huge praise for his performance against the Spurs in his return at the Summer League.

The Warriors came back to beat San Antonio Spur 86-85 on Sunday which was his first game since April.

“For him to be able to come out and play in a summer league game like today with good composure and playing at the rim, blocking some shots, he just looked like a really good basketball player,” Warriors summer league coach Jama Mahlalela said. “That first outing is all we wanted, and we told him to come out, have fun, enjoy the game and let it come to him.”

The Warriors are emphasizing a focus on the fundamentals for Wiseman through training camp. No matter what, those will be a big part of his role with Golden State during the regular season.

But now that they have actually seen Wiseman play, the Warriors can start to plan out how they want to use the 7-foot center.

“Until he’s playing, we don’t really know what we have. You don’t know what you’re working with,” Mahlalela told ESPN. “I hope that by the first week of August, we have a much more clear plan of what he needs to work on through August and training camp.”

After the game Wiseman pin point areas where he thinks he needs to improve his game.

“It felt good,” Wiseman said. “There are a lot of things for me to work on, I mean, my timing was pretty off. But this was my first game. I had fun out there.”
