Eric Paschall's conditioning prevented him from participating in 5-on-5 action at the Warriors' recent minicamp.
Warriors beat writer Monte Poole adds that the Warriors weren't thrilled with Paschall's physique when he showed up to the bubble, but Steve Kerr did not seem overly alarmed. Surely the Dubs would love if Paschall could keep his foot on the gas after a strong rookie season, but expect teams to give players a little bit of slack given the pandemic and its effects on access to training facilities. If this lingers into real training camp it could be a real red flag.

Klay Thompson and Eric Paschall missed the second day of the Warriors' minicamp on Thursday as they continue to go through league quarantine protocols.
It is unclear when the two players will be able to attend the Warriors' bubble so stay tuned with us for updates as we should learn more in the coming days.

Zion Williamson was named to the 2019-20 NBA All-Rookie First Team on Tuesday, joining Ja Morant, Kendrick Nunn, Brandon Clarke and Eric Paschall.
Williamson capped off a disjointed rookie season, receiving 87 of a possible 100 votes to take his place in the All-Rookie First Team. Along with Morant, Nunn and Clarke, Williamson was really a no-brainer when it came to selecting the team. Paschall narrowly beat out Tyler Herro for the fifth spot on the team, an honor he certainly earned with his impressive play on an underwhelming Warriors team.

Eric Paschall saw significant playing time this season, his rookie campaign, due to a ravaged Warriors roster and played well (14.0 PTS, 4.6 REB, 2.1 AST and 0.6 3PT).
Paschall played his college ball at Villanova under the tutelage of coach Jay Wright, so his pedigree is top notch. He proved quite a bit for the Warriors in his first NBA season, and even earned an unexpected bid to the Rising Stars game in February. Paschall ranked 189th in 8-cat and 205th in 9-cat but he was nowhere near a lock to make the team out of camp. He should maintain a bench role for the Warriors in 2020-21, even when their depleted roster makes it back to full strength. It's too early to tell what his fantasy outlook might be for next season.

Head coach Steve Kerr is open to slotting Draymond Green at center more often to give Eric Paschall more opportunity at power forward.
Green has rarely had an issue playing center over the years, and the NBA is only tending to get smaller nowadays. The Warriors will always find a way to get Green on the floor if they want to, and it will be important to see if he is fully engaged when the Warriors are able to deploy Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson next to him again. Green has seen his minutes slide in recent years, but that could change when the team has a shot at winning games again. As for Paschall, it is good to see that he is still part of the Warriors' plans, but his ability to be an offensive focal point will be limited when the team is healthy again. He'll have to diversify his game to retain any value beyond deeper formats.

Draymond Green (left knee soreness) has been ruled out ahead of Thursday's contest vs. the Nets.
The Warriors are expected to have Stephen Curry back in the mix on Thursday but will be without Green against the Nets. Eric Paschall will continue to see more opportunity while Green is sidelined.

Eric Paschall came off the bench on Saturday and scored 23 points (8-of-12 from the field) with three rebounds and six assists in 29 minutes.
Paschall has averaged 18.3 points on 57.1 percent shooting in 32.4 minutes over the past seven games, with Draymond Green only playing 10 minutes in one game over that stretch. Even during that time Paschall is outside the top-125 with 0.0 blocks and 0.4 steals per game. Paschall is a late-round option when Green is out of the lineup.

Eric Paschall came off the bench on Thursday and scored 16 points on 6-of-10 shooting to go with four rebounds, eight dimes and a triple.
Paschall looked great again in 30 minutes of action, but this game had no Draymond Green (knee) so it remains to be seen whether or not he can keep this up. Hang onto him for now, but we've seen how little he does when Green is healthy so don't be afraid to move on after a bad night.

Draymond Green (sore left knee) has been ruled out for Thursday's game against the Raptors.
This is expected with the Warriors having nothing to play for at this point. Eric Paschall, Dragan Bender and Juan Toscano-Anderson may be worth longer looks in daily formats.

Eric Paschall had 22 points, five rebounds and five assists in the Warriors' victory on Tuesday over the Nuggets.
Paschall knocked down two of his four threes as well. The obvious advice is just to stay away from any and all Warriors players this year. In the event that you are in a deeper league or in need of streaming options for a playoff chase, Paschall is definitely worth a look. He has been particularly good over the past three games and ranks right around the top-150 over the previous two weeks.

Eric Paschall played well on Sunday in a loss to the Wizards with 17 points on 7-of-14 shooting in 33 minutes of action.
Paschall is on fire as of late and continued with his performance as he added seven rebounds and six assists to the box score. He continues to be a versatile option for deeper leagues, but his overall per-game value remains outside the top-200.
March 1, 2020, 8:14 pmDraymond GreenPF, Golden State Warriors
Dealing with left knee soreness, Draymond Green will not play against the Wizards on Sunday.
Eric Paschall has a nice opportunity to take advantage of with Green out of the lineup. Dragan Bender and Juan Toscano-Anderson could also have better nights. Toscano-Anderson will get the first crack as the starter. Green continues to be an impossible player to rely upon and is more likely to mess up your fantasy title pursuit than suddenly become an early-round asset and save it.

Eric Paschall paced the Warriors with 25 points off the bench, adding three rebounds, four dimes and one 3-pointer on 10-of-16 shooting.
Paschall is officially heating up again, scoring 20 points or more in back to back games now. He's worth a spot at the end of standard-league benches while he's productive like this, especially for teams in need of a boost in points.

Eric Paschall came off the bench on Thursday and scored 23 points on 7-of-14 shooting to go with three boards, two dimes and a triple.
Paschall logged 26 minutes off the bench in this one and it helps that Draymond Green got ejected early in the second quarter. If Green is ever going to miss time, Paschall is the next man up, but as it stands, he can be left on the wire.

Draymond Green (right pelvic contusion) will play against the Lakers on Thursday night.
Quite a few players will take a hit with Green’s return after a two-game absence. Draymond should have an easier time on Thursday as the Lakers will be without LeBron James (groin). Eric Paschall, Juan Toscano-Anderson and Ky Bowman will all see less minutes with Green back.
