Prior to the start of the Golden State Warriors’ three-game road swing, Eric Paschall and James Wiseman entered the NBA’s health and safety protocol, ruling both players out for seven days for contact tracing. On Saturday, another member of the Warriors will enter the league’s health and safety protocol.

According to Marcus Thompson and Anthony Slater of The Athletic, the Warriors will be without Kevon Looney for part two against the Memphis Grizzlies on Saturday due to health and safety protocols.

According to Slater, the expectation is Looney will only have a short stint in the health and safety protocol.

On Friday, Looney played a key role in Golden State’s 116-103, scoring 11 points on 5-of-6 shooting from the floor. The UCLA product showed off some range, drilling a triple against the Grizzlies. Looney added four boards, three steals and three assists on Friday.

Without Looney, Wiseman and Paschall, the Warriors will feature a small-ball lineup with Draymond Green and Juan Toscano-Anderson playing significant roles in the frontcourt. Second-year big Alen Smailagic could also be an option off the bench in the frontcourt.
