Warriors' Eric Paschall will play vs. Blazers after missing two games


The Warriors are getting a key piece back for Wednesday night's game in Portland.

Rookie forward Eric Paschall will return to the lineup after missing the last two games because of left hip soreness, Steve Kerr told reporters after Tuesday's practice.

The 23-year-old is averaging 16.1 points and 5.0 rebounds per game, while shooting over 49 percent from the field.

Back on Nov. 4, Paschall racked up career highs in points (34) and rebounds (13) in Golden State's 127-118 win over the Blazers at Chase Center.
