Golden State Warriors coach Don Nelson to miss team's five-game road trip


Golden State Warriors coach Don Nelson to miss team's five-game road trip Warriors coach Don Nelson, still feeling the effects of pneumonia, was advised not to go on the upcoming five-game road trip that begins Monday at Oklahoma City.

"The last thing you want is a setback," Nelson said after practice Friday. "I have to take the advice from the guys who know more than I do."

In addition, the Warriors will be without guard Anthony Morrow on Saturday night's game against Orlando. Morrow will miss the game due to a death in his family. He will rejoin the team for practice on Sunday and won't miss any games on the road trip.

Nelson, who will coach the Warriors game Saturday, was "strongly advised" by the team doctors and general manager Larry Riley to not make the trip. He coached Thursday night's loss to Houston, his first game back since being diagnosed with pnuemonia - which kept him out of action for five games.

But Nelson reported dizziness, excessive warmth and perspiration Thursday night and Friday morning. Because of that, plus Nelson's penchant for not always adhering to medical advice, Riley decided to have a long talk with Nelson about sitting out the trip.

Riley emphasized the urging was solely out of concern for Nelson's health.

"It's about his health and it's about the fact this is a difficult trip," Riley said, latter adding, "I want him back. I want him to take this time while we are on this trip. We come back sometime after the middle of December. By that period of time, I expect him to be fully recovered."

Assistant coach Keith Smart will once again assume the role of acting head coach during the road trip.
