During the NBA season, Warriors players reside in the Bay Area.
But when the 2019-20 campaign was paused on March 11 due to the coronavirus pandemic, players were given the option to stay in market or return to their hometowns.
Some Warriors players stayed in the Bay Area, while others left.
The Athletic’s Ethan Strauss wrote Friday that rookie Eric Paschall returned to New York to take care of a “family matter.” Fellow rookie Alen Smailagic initially stayed in the Bay Area, but eventually returned home to Serbia.
“Alen Smailagić had previously been in San Francisco, but recently returned to his native Serbia,” Strauss wrote. “The 19-year-old, having been marooned in the Bay due to the pandemic, had totally flipped around his schedule to a complete nocturnal mode, just so he could converse with family and friends back home. Eventually, Smailagić and the Warriors decided it was better that he just fly there.”

With the Warriors’ practice facility at Chase Center recently opening, several players — including Steph Curry — have been working out there.
While the Warriors won’t participate when the NBA resumes the 2019-20 season at Walt Disney World in Orlando, Fla., they still want to get their players into the facility so they can work out with coaches and stay in shape as they prepare for the 2020-21 season, which could start as early as December.
