Last Wednesday, Golden State Warriors bench bigs James Wiseman and Eric Paschall entered the health and safety protocol, and were forced to stay in the team hotel while the Warriors beat the Houston Rockets. The two youngsters then traveled back to the Bay Area, along with a few other Warriors staffers who had entered the protocol, with the league saying that they would have to quarantine for a week.
But it looks like that week is ending sooner than we thought, as both Wiseman and Paschall are listed as probable for Tuesday night’s game against the Philadelphia 76ers.

Head coach Steve Kerr said at his Monday media availability that Wiseman and Paschall both needed to test negative for the coronavirus a few more times before being cleared to play, and neither were allowed to practice.
James Wiseman and Eric Paschall could possibly be active tomorrow. Will have to complete a few more tests before being cleared to return from the health and safety protocols.— Wes Goldberg (@wcgoldberg) March 23, 2021
The Warriors are also welcoming back Kevon Looney, who missed Saturday’s game with a false positive test, but will be without Steph Curry, who will miss his third straight game due to a tailbone contusion.
