Golden State Warriors forward Eric Paschall and rookie James Wiseman have been reportedly placed into the health and safety protocols, according to Shams Charania and Anthony Slater of The Athletic.

The two will each not play on Wednesday versus the Houston Rockets.

Paschall and Wiseman will reportedly be entered into the health and safety protocols because of contact tracing. The team will also have a couple of assistant coaches join the two players and they will not be able to return until they are cleared by the NBA.

Of course, Wiseman was previously in the health and safety protocols after reportedly testing positive for the coronavirus during training camp. He missed several practices ahead of the start of the season and was forced to learn on the fly to begin the year.

Wiseman missed a mandatory COVID-19 test over the All-Star break and was unable to practice with the Warriors prior to the start of the second half of the season as a result. Warriors head coach Steve Kerr benched Wiseman for the first three quarters on March 11 because of the lapse.

The loss of Paschall and Wiseman will be critical to the Warriors as each has carved out important roles in the rotation. Paschall, in 37 games this season, is averaging 9.5 points and 3.2 rebounds while Wiseman is posting 11.8 points, six rebounds and one block.
