Calf issue keeps Moody out of Warriors' four-game road trip.

Moses Moody, backup guard, is the latest Warriors injury. On Friday in Chicago, Warriors coach Steve Kerr told reporters that Moody, 21, will miss the entire four-game road trip after straining his calf in Wednesday's 36-point home defeat to the New Orleans Pelicans.

On Friday, Jan. 19, the Warriors announced that Moody will miss the home game against the Dallas Mavericks due to a grade 1 strain. He will be re-evaluated in 10 days. After that, Golden State plays the Atlanta Hawks at Chase Center on Wednesday, Jan. 24.

"Huge loss," Kerr stated 90 minutes before the Warriors-Bulls game at United Center. "Since returning to the rotation, he's played well, and our injuries are a major blow. We need him, so maybe he can return soon."

After facing the Bulls on Friday, the Warriors play the Bucks on Saturday. On Monday, they play the banged-up Memphis Grizzlies, then on Wednesday, they play the Jazz in Utah. Moody has appeared in 34 of the Warriors' 37 games this season, averaging 8.7 points and 3.1 rebounds. He's shooting a career-high 48.2% from the field and 35.8% from 3-point range.

Moody's uneven season led Kerr to remove him from the rotation for three games in the previous two weeks. Moody entered the Warriors' rotation when Gary Payton II and Chris Paul were injured. That's on hold.

"Moses went three or four games without being in the rotation and then obviously the injuries started and we gave him a chance," said Kerr. Moses responded, played well, and worked more, as always.

Moses has showed us who he is throughout the years, and I would bet on him because he's a young player with a lot to learn, but he learns, matures, and works hard and always plays well when his time comes. So it was upsetting when he returned and performed well for a few games before getting injured. I hope he returns soon."

Kerr said two-way players Lester Quinones or Jerome Robinson may play with three guards out injured. As they try to stay in the Western Conference playoff picture, the 17-20 Warriors need all the healthy bodies they can get. They hope Moody can return soon after they return home next week.
