Wizards coach Flip Saunders will not be on the Wizards bench when they host the Golden State Warriors.
He has gone to be with his ailing mother in Ohio, according to Frank Hanrahan of CSN Washington. Assistant coach Randy Wittman will take over in the big chair as the Wizards try to snap a six-game losing streak (the Warriors have lost four in a row themselves).
No word on when Saunders will return to the team, nor should there be. He needs to take care of what really matters right now.
