Zaza Pachulia (shoulder) will not play on Thursday vs. the Mavericks.
Pachulia was spotted at the morning shootaround, but once again the Warriors are choosing to be cautious. With three days off before Monday's game vs. the Lakers, there's a good chance Zaza will be back for that one. If the Mavs start Dirk Nowitzki at center, Jordan Bell will likely get the nod in the first unit for Golden State. Dec 14 - 1:52 PM

Zaza Pachulia (shoulder) is doubtful for Thursday against the Mavs.

He was on the practice court on Wednesday, but clearly the the Warriors aren't in a rush to bring him back. If he's out, David West, JaVale McGee and Jordan Bell should be handling more center minutes. Bell is worth an add in competitive leagues until Draymond Green (shoulder) and Zaza can make it back.
Dec 13 - 3:13 PM

Zaza Pachulia (shoulder) has been ruled out for Monday's game against the Trail Blazers.

This will be Pachulia's second straight game on the sidelines after aggravating the shoulder injury in a five-minute stint on Wednesday, and for now we'll be considering him questionable for Thursday's game against the Mavericks. JaVale McGee typically starts against more traditional frontcourts, but with Jusuf Nurkic (ankle) out for Portland, they might go small which could result in Jordan Bell earning the starting nod. Draymond Green also figures to log heavy minutes tonight.
Dec 11 - 2:19 PM

Zaza Pachulia (shoulder) is doubtful to play Monday vs. Portland.

Pachulia has missed two of the past three games with shoulder issues, and it looks like he'll be on the sidelines again on Monday night. JaVale McGee will likely earn another start and there will be more minutes available for Jordan Bell, with Bell being the more attractive option between the two.
Dec 10 - 6:26 PM

Zaza Pachulia (shoulder) will not play Friday night vs. the Pistons.

There was some optimism that Zaza might suit up on Friday after he was upgraded to questionable on Thursday's injury report. However, Pachulia will sit this one out in hopes of playing Monday vs. Portland. JaVale McGee is expected to draw the start at center on Friday and lock horns with Andre Drummond. McGee started in place of Zaza on Monday but logged a total of just 11 minutes.
Dec 8 - 11:24 AM

Zaza Pachulia (shoulder) has been upgraded to questionable for Friday's game.

Golden State has a very busy injury report. If you're relying on Zaza, Draymond Green (right shoulder soreness) or Andre Iguodala (sore left knee), check back Friday afternoon for the latest.
Dec 7 - 6:43 PM

Zaza Pachulia (shoulder) is listed as doubtful for Friday's game vs. Detroit.

With Pachulia expected to sit, the Warriors will likely start JaVale McGee on Andre Drummond. Draymond Green (shoulder) is questionable, so Jordan Bell is worth a long look if you want to gamble on his upside.
Dec 7 - 1:49 PM

Zaza Pachulia (shoulder) went to the locker room in the first quarter on Wednesday and is doubtful to return, according to the Warriors broadcast.

There's a good chance he's done for the night because of his lingering shoulder issue. If that's the case, JaVale McGee and David West will also have to join Jordan Bell in stepping up. This could be another reason to add Bell, too.
Dec 6 - 8:24 PM

Zaza Pachulia (shoulder) will play Wednesday vs. the Hornets.

JaVale McGee will assuredly be returning to the bench tonight with Pachulia back in action, but neither of these guys can be considered viable targets in most leagues.
Dec 6 - 12:01 PM

Zaza Pachulia (shoulder) is listed as questionable in the game notes for Wednesday's contest vs. Charlotte.

Zaza was unable to play on Monday. JaVale McGee started for Pachulia vs. the Pelicans and scored eight points with four rebounds and a block in just 11 minutes. Jordan Bell had four points and one rebound in 12 minutes.

Dec 5 - 10:30 AM

Zaza Pachulia (shoulder) will not play on Monday vs. the Pelicans.

It's the second night of a back-to-back set and Pachulia's injury is being called "left shoulder soreness," so maybe they are just being cautious. Coach Steve Kerr wouldn't reveal who would replace Pachulia in the starting lineup, but Jordan Bell, David West and JaVale McGee are all candidates to see more minutes.
Dec 4 - 6:39 PM

Zaza Pachulia (left shoulder soreness) is listed as questionable for Monday's game vs. the Pelicans.

Warriors coach Steve Kerr said that he may rest some guys on Monday and Pachulia is a candidate since he's banged up, but they could really use his size against DeMarcus Cousins. Pachulia has only been getting minutes in the teens, but if he sits we could see more of Jordan Bell, David West and maybe even JaVale McGee.

Dec 4 - 10:17 AM

Zaza Pachulia scored six points with eight rebounds, four assists and one block in 15 minutes against the Magic in a 133-112 win on Friday.

Just start Jordan Bell already.
Dec 1 - 9:38 PM

Zaza Pachulia had a career-high six dimes and a season-high 11 points against the Bulls on Friday.

It was a strong game from Pachulia and maybe he's hearing footsteps from the young guys. Pachulia is a legend for his Game 7 quote, but most of the fantasy world is rooting against him so we can get more Jordan Bell.
Nov 25 - 1:29 AM

Zaza Pachulia played 12 minutes vs. the Thunder, scoring two point with three rebounds, one steal and one block.

Pachulia has exceeded 20 minutes once all season, and as usual he quickly gave way to David West (12 minutes), JaVale McGee (seven minutes), and a host of small lineups. The Warriors' center spot is a fantasy wasteland in 12-team leagues.
