Zaza Pachulia (heel) is back to full participation at practice for the Warriors.
His last game on the court was Game 2 of the Western Conference Finals against the Spurs. Both the Warriors and Cavaliers have earned a long rest period before the Finals tip off on Thursday and we can expect both rosters to be fully healthy for round three of the Cavs-Dubs rivalry. Zaza is expected to return as the starting center for the Warriors, although he has only exceeded 20 minutes once this postseason. Furthermore, the Warriors may look to play Andre Iguodala more as a “LeBron-stopper” in the Finals, but the way the postseason has gone so far, we are struggling to believe such a thing exists. Regardless, that should eat into Pachulia’s playing time against Cleveland.
