Eric Paschall has been one of the few bright spots for the Warriors this season, but now he's part of the walking wounded.

The Warriors announced roughly 15 minutes before tip-off in Oklahoma City that the rookie forward will not play against the Thunder due to a right hip contusion.

Paschall joins Steph Curry, Klay Thompson, Draymond Green and Kevon Looney among the Warriors out due to injury.

The No. 41 overall pick in this past June's NBA draft, Paschall has been a revelation for the Warriors, In nine games, he's averaging 16.4 points and 4.2 rebounds.

His signature moment came earlier this week when he dropped a career-high 34 points on his 23rd birthday.

With Paschall out, veteran Alec Burks will slide into the starting lineup for the Warriors on Saturday night.
