Golden State Warriors centre Zaza Pachulia‘s MRI is reported to be clean after suffering a heel contusion, according to Chris Haynes of ESPN.

The injury took Pachulia out of Game 2 of the Western Conference Finals on Tuesday night, but the Georgia native should be able to return to action sooner rather than later with his status being listed as day-to-day.

Warriors fans must feel relieved, while the Spurs faithful might have other thoughts after Pachulia injured their franchise player in Kawhi Leonard in Game 1.

Leonard is still listed as questionable for Saturday’s Game 3 matchup after missing Game 2 with an ankle injury.
