The Warriors’ frontcourt depth has been tested all year due to injuries and missed games due to the NBA coronavirus health and safety protocols.
Now, Golden State is monitoring the health of forward Eric Paschall after he “banged his wrist” in pre-practice workouts on Sunday, according to coach Steve Kerr.
“He missed practice so that’s concerning,” Kerr said in a video conference with reporters. “But I don’t know anything beyond that yet. He had an ice pack on it and I haven’t talked to [director of sports medicine and performance] Rick [Celebrini] yet.”
The Warriors (22-24) are riding a four-game losing streak and they play the Chicago Bulls (19-25) on Monday at Chase Center.
Paschall thrived as a small-ball center and provided instant offense off the bench earlier this year, but his production has cooled. He hasn’t topped double-digit points since his 18-point effort against the Los Angeles Lakers on Feb. 28.
Paschall has struggled to get back into the rotation since missing three games due to health and safety protocols earlier this month. He didn’t play in his first two games back and received just 8:38 of playing time on Friday against the Atlanta Hawks.
But the Warriors also received some encouraging news as Steph Curry's status has been upgraded to questionable after he practiced Sunday and continues to deal with a tailbone contusion.
