Warriors coach Don Nelson will not travel with the team on their upcoming five-game road trip.

Nelson, who is still feeling the effects of pneumonia, was asked not to go on the trip, which begins Monday in Oklahoma City.

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

He missed the team's previous five games before coaching in Thursday night's loss to the Rockets.

"It's about his health and it's about the fact this is a difficult trip," general manager Larry Riley said, later 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."
