The Warriors will be without forward Eric Paschall for at least the next eight games. 

Paschall underwent an MRI on Saturday, which revealed a left hip flexor strain. Golden State announced Sunday that he will be re-evaluated in two weeks. 

Paschall, 24, is averaged 9.5 points and 3.2 rebounds per game this season. He scored nine points and grabbed six rebounds in the Warriors' blowout loss to the Toronto Raptors on Friday. But he appeared to hurt himself in the final few minutes of the loss.

The second-year pro has dealt with an up-and-down season on the court this year. After averaging 14 points per game and being named to the All-Rookie Team as a second-round draft pick, Paschall's role has diminished in Year 2. His minutes per game have gone down from 27.6 to 17.3, and his field goal attempts have decreased from 10.7 to 7.5 per game. 

The Warriors (23-26) face the Atlanta Hawks (25-24) on Sunday at State Farm Arena.
