Eric Paschall has missed the Warriors' last four games with a strained left hip flexor, and will be sidelined for at least one more week.

How is the 24-year-old doing?

"I feel better. I can move around. I'm rehabbing it every day," Paschall told reporters Monday afternoon. "That's pretty much it. I've been in here rehabbing trying to get it right. Just been doing that every day.

"Trying to stay engaged mentally -- obviously, it's rough. Just gotta deal with it."

Paschall sustained the injury late in the Warriors' loss to the Toronto Raptors on April 2.

"It was in the Toronto game. Went up to block a pass -- came down, felt it, could barely walk after it initially happened," Paschall explained. "It feels fine now, though.

"I can walk without a limp. I'm good."

Paschall was named All-Rookie First-Team last year, but it's been a frustrating second NBA season for the Villanova product.

He has been in and out of the rotation, dealt with a couple injuries and missed five games because of COVID-19 health and safety protocols.

His goal is to return for the home stretch and build some momentum heading into an important offseason.
