Report: Eric Paschall listed as questionable for game against Suns

Golden State Warriors rookie Eric Paschall has flashed his multi-dimensional skill set in his first NBA season, but for now he might have to take some time off to get healthy.

According to ESPN’s Nick Friedell, Paschall is questionable for the Warriors’ game Friday against the Phoenix Suns. Paschall suffered a hip contusion during the Warriors’ Christmas Day win against the Houston Rockets.

Paschall has had nagging hip soreness this season, but he has played most of the season, as he’s only missed three games.

As one of the Warriors’ key players, Paschall has proven to be a top player of his draft class thus far. Paschall ranks second on the Warriors in field goal percentage behind Willie Cauley-Stein. According to NBA.com, he ranks third in scoring among rookies and fifth in rebounds.

Since Paschall has had to deal with a nagging hip injury, he should perhaps look to get some rest for the short and long term. The Warriors have a home back-to-back, with the Suns game Friday and a game Saturday against the Dallas Mavericks.

After the Mavericks game, Golden State then starts a stretch where it will play a game every other day from Dec. 31-Jan. 24. Six games during that 13-game stretch will be on the road.
