Paschall out vs. Mavs with knee soreness for depleted Warriors

Eric Paschall Warriors Tristan Thompson

The Warriors might enter Thursday night's game vs. the Dallas Mavericks even more depleted in the frontcourt than expected.

Eric Paschall will not play due to right knee soreness after initially appearing on the morning injury report as "questionable."

Paschall had been questionable with this designation a couple times this season, but had not yet missed a game because of it.

With Kevon Looney (sprained left ankle) and James Wiseman (sprained left wrist) already ruled out, the expectation is that Juan Toscano-Anderson will start at power forward and receive a boost in playing time, with Draymond Green playing all of his minutes at center.

Steve Kerr and the coaching staff also could go very small by inserting Damion Lee, Kent Bazemore or Brad Wanamaker into the game for longer stretches.

After Thursday's matchup, the Warriors and Mavs will face off again Saturday night.
