Kerith Burke: James Wiseman is around the team during the homestand, and he plans to spend much of his off-season in San Francisco to work with the Warriors training staff. Kerr called Wiseman “willing” and “patient” about his rehab.
Kendra Andrews: Steve Kerr says it’s hard to say when Eric Paschall is coming back. His injury has healed well, but he’s still getting back in condition. He’s been able scrimmage a bit, but since the team hasn’t practiced much, most of Paschall’s work has been done solo. He’s still day to day.
Jovan Buha: The Lakers list Kyle Kuzma (lower back tightness) as doubtful for tomorrow’s game against Phoenix. Talen Horton-Tucker (right calf strain) and Alex Caruso are questionable. LeBron James and Dennis Schröder are out.
