ATLANTA (AP) -Chris Webber missed Golden State's game against the Atlanta Hawks on Tuesday night with a sore left knee.
Warriors coach Don Nelson said Webber, who left a win Sunday over Portland after eight minutes, plans to stay in Atlanta to rehab and could sit out the final three games of Golden State's current road trip.
Results of an MRI taken Monday in Oakland were negative.
Matt Barnes started in place of Webber, a 14th-year center-forward who is averaging 3.9 points and 3.6 rebounds in nine games. Nelson said Webber has a home in Atlanta and a trainer to help him work out.
The Warriors signed Webber to a free-agent contract on Jan. 29.
