Before a tilt against the Eastern Conference-leading Philadelphia 76ers at Chase Center, the Golden State Warriors will be getting some needed reinforcements in the frontcourt.

After missing Golden State’s three-game road swing, Eric Paschall and James Wiseman have been officially cleared to return to the rotation, per Anthony Slater of The Athletic. Paschall and Wiseman have been in the protocol for contact tracing since March 17.

Kevon Looney will also be returning to the Warriors after entering the league’s health and safety protocol. However, Looney’s stint away from the Warriors was only limited to one game against the Memphis Grizzlies.

Without Wiseman and Paschall, the Warriors leaned on Draymond Green, Juan Toscano-Anderson and Alen Smailagic in the frontcourt. The return of Wiseman and Paschall will give the Warriors depth and a needed scoring boost off the bench.

Paschall has been a staple in Kerr’s second unit, tallying 9.5 points on 49.3% shooting from the field with 3.2 rebounds in 17.4 minutes off the bench. After moving to a role behind Looney, Wiseman is averaging 12,1 points on 54.5% shooting from the field with 5.8 boards in 20.4 minutes off the bench.

Although the Warriors will be getting back a trio of key contributors, Steph Curry will miss his third consecutive contest with a tailbone contusion.

The Warriors will welcome the Sixers to Chase Center on Tuesday at 7 p.m. PT.
