Warriors' Eric Paschall ruled out vs. Pelicans game with knee injury


This Warriors season has been defined by injuries, and one of the few bright spots for the team took a hit Friday night against the New Orleans Pelicans.

Rookie forward Eric Paschall injured his right knee late in the first quarter and was ruled out by the team midway through the first quarter.

Paschall finished with three points, one rebound and one assist in seven minutes off the bench.

The second-round draft pick missed two games recently due to hip soreness. He returned to the lineup Wednesday in the Warriors' loss to the Portland Trail Blazers.
