We’ve got good news with the season around the corner.

The Golden State Warriors finally have their full squad on the court. With the season opener against the Brooklyn Nets just eight days way, the Dubs welcomed All-Star Draymond Green and lottery pick James Wiseman to the court on Monday.

Green and Wiseman had both tested positive for the coronavirus before training camp started, and had been unable to participate in team activities. For the last few days they had been in the facility doing individual work, but Monday was their first day practicing with the team.

Both Green and Wiseman will need to work themselves into shape after being sidelined for a while, and it’s unclear when they’ll be ready to play games. While they won’t play in Tuesday’s preseason game, coach Steve Kerr wouldn’t rule them out of Thursday’s preseason finale — but also didn’t guarantee that either of them would be ready for the season opener, either.

As for how each player looked? Well, things seem to be good in that regard.

Green appeared to be in great shape; not game shape, for obvious reasons, but he seems to be doing very well.

That’s tremendous news following a season in which he seemed to be dinged up all the time.

Not surprisingly, Green didn’t need much time to start impacting the team.

As for Wiseman, the initial reports seem very positive. He even got the always-important Draymond seal of approval.

I was already looking forward to watching Green and Wiseman play basketball. Now I’m looking forward to it even more.

Dec. 22 cannot come soon enough.
