James Wiseman has been cleared to participate in a 5-on-5 scrimmage Tuesday morning, sources confirmed to ESPN.

Warriors general manager Bob Myers first shared news of this plan on "The Morning Roast" radio show.

This is the latest step in Wiseman's rehab process after tearing his meniscus last April, and is a sign that he is approaching what could be the final ramp-up stage before returning to the court.

This news comes exactly one week after Wiseman participated in his first 3-on-3 scrimmage in Salt Lake City -- his first contact work since April 2021.

Wiseman was initially projected to return by the start of the season, but multiple setbacks pushed back that date. There is still no clear timetable for his return to the court, but him taking part in a 5-on-5 scrimmage is one step closer to that.
