Zaza Pachulia (heel) will not play in Game 4 vs. the Spurs on Monday. The Warriors will play it safe with Zaza since they have a 3-0 series lead. Coach Steve Kerr said he won't decide on a starting lineup until he sees what San Antonio does, but he did add that he will give the nod to either JaVale McGee or Patrick McCaw.

Zaza Pachulia (heel) is being listed as questionable for Monday's Game 4 against the Spurs. The Dubs are up 3-0 in this series, so they have the luxury of holding Pachulia out if they feel there's any risk of him suffering a setback; particularly with Kawhi Leonard (ankle) looking unlikely for the Spurs. We should have a better idea on his status following Monday morning's shootaround, but if he's out again, JaVale McGee could get another start and there would be more minutes for guys like David West and Andre Iguodala.

Zaza Pachulia (right heel contusion) has been ruled out of Game 3 vs. San Antonio on Saturday. This update was expected after it was revealed that Pachulia "didn't do much" at practice on Friday. Spurs fans are undoubtedly disappointed that they won't have the opportunity to boo Pachulia out of the building on Saturday. JaVale McGee will likely draw the start at center. David West may pick up some extra run as well. However, Golden State may also choose to go small early and often, playing Draymond Green in the middle more frequently.

Zaza Pachulia (heel) didn't do much at practice on Friday. He is still listed as questionable for Game 3, but not doing much at practice doesn't bode well for his chances to play on Saturday. If Zaza isn't out there, it'll likely be more JaVale McGee and David West at the five with more Draymond in there, as well.

Zaza Pachulia (heel) went through parts of practice on Thursday. An MRI confirmed he only has a bruise to his heel. Pachulia did have some issues with his right Achilles earlier in his career, so there's a chance this could be affecting that ailment. If he can't go, JaVale McGee and David West will likely get some added run.

An MRI confirmed that Zaza Pachulia suffered a bruised right heel vs. the Spurs on Tuesday. The MRI didn't reveal any structural damage and Pachulia is considered day-to-day. The Warriors don't play again until Game 3 on Saturday, which is a big help, but if Zaza misses any games JaVale McGee stands to gain the most minutes.
