Myers encouraged by Draymond and Wiseman’s rehab progress originally appeared on NBC Sports Bayarea

The Warriors have been without Draymond Green for nearly a month as the forward rehabs a disc issue in his lower back that is causing calf weakness.

Golden State is expected to release an update on Green’s progress soon, but president of basketball operations Bob Myers told 95.7 The Game’s “The Morning Roast” that both Green and James Wiseman are trending in the right direction.

“He’s progressing well,” Myers said of Green. “He’s in there working and getting stronger. Everything is trending right. I don’t know the timing. That’s what we will probably talk about today. And Wiseman, same. We’ll have an update in the next few days, I guess. But the thing with James is, he just has to show that he can get through this kind of ramp-up period, and then he gets to play against people. We hope that’s soon.

“I’m encouraged that both are on the right track. We need them both. If you’re talking about what is coming up in the playoffs. Yes, going small has worked and that’s a testament to what [Kevon] Looney has done. Last night, [Steve Kerr] put Juan [Toscano-Anderson] out there at the five, [Jonathan] Kuminga has played some five. Right now, [Nemanja] Bjelica is banged up with back spasms so Looney has to stay healthy and thankfully he has and he is doing a really good job.”

While Green has only missed a month and appears to be headed in the right direction, Wiseman has yet to make his season debut as he continues to recover from meniscus surgery performed last April. Wiseman had a second clean-up surgery in December which set back his rehab.

Last week, Kerr gave an update on Wiseman and it didn’t sound like the young center was close to returning.

“There’s just no blueprint for this,” coach Steve Kerr told KNBR. “This is such a unique set of circumstances, and we will just have to see how it plays out, and we thought it was going to play out very differently. We thought he would be back by now. I just feel so bad for James. He is working every day. He is keeping a really good, positive spirit about him. But we want so badly for him to get his career started and off the ground. The poor guy is dealing with the injury, with the knee, and we just don’t know when he is going to turn the corner.”

After Monday night’s win over the Houston Rockets, the Warriors now have won six in a row and have stabilized themselves after a rough patch in the middle of January.

The Warriors enter February as one of the top title contenders in the NBA. But they know they will need Green fully healthy in order to get back to the Finals, so the Warriors will undoubtedly be patient as the star forward works his way back to the court.
