Moody gets Warriors rotation spot after CP3's absence.

San Francisco— A small group of Warriors supporters at Chase Center Friday night started chanting early, and the sellout crowd joined in in the third quarter

Wanted Moses Moody. Wanted him on the floor to energize his teammates, who looked tired against the lowly Detroit Pistons. Fans got what they desired. Moody will likely emerge again in the following weeks.

Moody left the bench after three games and checked in at the scorer's table with 9:55 left in the fourth quarter. Back on the court, Moody. His road to playing time is now obvious, therefore he should re-familiarize himself with its dimensions and teammates.

Chris Paul, the Warriors' leading point guard, departed the game in the third holding his left hand. Surgery is needed for his fracture. There is no schedule, but he may return in March.

CP3, Draymond Green, and Gary Payton II's absences give opportunities for Brandin Podziemski, Cory Joseph, and Moody, who have primarily played on the Golden State bench's fringes.

Both Brandin and Cory will play more at the point,” Kerr said. Because you replace Chris for 30 minutes, Moses may return to the rotation. We won't replace those minutes with one individual. They'll probably be spaced out

Moody played Friday after not playing since Dec. 28 -- 11 points in 13 solid minutes in a 114-102 defeat to the Miami Heat. The 2021 lottery selection scored no points in six minutes against the Pistons. Moody is more of a wing than a point guard, but rotational movement will provide him chances. His earnings are that much.

He was great tonight,” Kerr said. “He was energetic. It was fantastic hearing supporters sing his name. Fans love him for a reason. He plays hard. Being out of the loop the previous several games has been challenging, but he keeps ready. I’m happy to have him back.” Fans who want Moody off the bench and into the rotation are too.
