Steve Kerr will be out indefinitely as he deals with painful complications stemming from his back surgery in 2015.
"This is not going to be a case where I'm coaching one night and not coaching the next," Kerr said. "I'm not going to do that to our team, to our staff. We're hoping that over the next week or two or whatever it is, I can start to make a definitive realization, a reduction, or just feel it that I'm going to do this or not." Until Kerr is healthy, assistant Mike Brown will serve as the Warriors' acting head coach. Apr 23 - 7:41 PM

Steve Kerr, who missed Game 3 vs. Portland with an undisclosed illness, isn't expected to coach any more games in the first round of the playoffs.

The Warriors have been pretty vague about Kerr's health, but according to Marcus Thompson of Mercury News, the head coach could barely walk earlier this week and was in "excruciating pain." The specific cause of the illness is not known, but the Warriors are trying to determine if the illness is related to the headaches and nausea he has battled for the past two seasons since his back surgery in 2015. Kerr was able to address his team on Saturday morning prior to Game 3, but it sounds like assistant Mike Brown will take over for a little while. We'll update Kerr's status when we know more, but the Warriors will take every precaution and he doesn't have a timetable to return to the sidelines.

Coach Steve Kerr said he will not rest players against the Clippers on Wednesday, but he "probably" will at some point in the next five games.

The Warriors get the Clippers on Wednesday, the Jazz in Utah on Thursday, the Grizzlies in Memphis on Saturday, the Wolves in Minnesota on Sunday and the Pelicans in New Orleans on Tuesday. For Wednesday, expect to see a normal amount of minutes while Kerr could rest a different player in the following stretch.

Coach Steve Kerr said his regulars are all available to play against the Lakers on Friday.

The Warriors lost in their last game at Staples Center against the Lakers, so they may want some revenge. They're also coming in red hot with a 149-point explosion against them on Wednesday.

Coach Steve Kerr said he will not rest players against the Bucks on Saturday.

It's the second night of a back-to-back set, so we'll see how Kerr uses his guys tonight.

Coach Steve Kerr said he wants to get his starters around 30 minutes in the next two preseason games.

He added the starters will get minutes in the fourth quarter. The Warriors have come together nicely, especially with both Klay Thompson and Kevin Durant each clearing 75.0 true shooting percentage.

Coach Steve Kerr said he won't use his starters "a whole lot" against the Raptors on Saturday.

He did say they were all going to play, so we should see a bunch of staples in the GSW rotation tonight. For now, it looks like we'll get a heavy dose of Ian Clark, Patrick McCaw, James Michael McAdoo and Kevon Looney.

Coach Steve Kerr said everybody will play in Saturday's game against the Raptors.

"We'll start using certain combinations and go from there," Kerr said. Giddy up.

The Warriors have reportedly extended the contract of GM Bob Myers.

Myers was also promoted to President of Basketball Operations, which was an incredibly easy decision for the Dubs after Myers helped bring in the players that led to a championship in 2015, and also played a key role in recruiting Kevin Durant this offseason. Additionally, Jerry West's contract with the Warriors is due to expire at the conclusion of the 2016-17 season, although both sides report they have every intention of continuing their relationship for at least another three years.

The Warriors are reportedly trying to move up in the first round of the 2016 NBA Draft.

The Dubs currently own the No. 30 overall selection in the upcoming draft, and they do not own any second-round picks, but they are reportedly trying to move up into the teens. Phoenix, Denver, Philadelphia and Boston all own multiple first-round picks, and it's unlikely that they'll use all of them, so moving up is a realistic possibility. The Trail Blazers are also trying to acquire a first-round selection.

Steve Kerr will have to put one of his healthy players on the inactive list for Monday's Game 5 with Draymond Green (suspension) active but unavailable.

James Michael McAdoo, Brandon Rush and Ian Clark have logged the least amount of minutes for the Dubs through their postseason run, so it'll likely be one of those guys heading to the inactive list. Rush did earn a start in the one game that Green was sidelined during the regular season, and McAdoo played well in limited minutes during Game 4, so perhaps it's Clark that comes to Game 5 in street clothes.

Steve Kerr described why his club is remaining confident despite conceding home court advantage to the Thunder during Monday's Game 1 loss.

"I was part of five championship teams as a player, and it was never easy," said Kerr. "Every team that I was on that won a title lost at least a home game during the playoffs. So it happens." Kerr also went on to say that with how long and athletic the Thunder are, it's difficult to go prolonged stretches using small-ball lineups, so it'll be interesting to see how much of the "death lineup" we see during Game 2. Kerr also hinted that Anderson Varejao could see an increased role as the series goes on.

Steve Kerr has won the 2015-16 Coach of the Year award.

Kerr missed much of the season with back issues, but it was hard not to give him the award after breaking the regular season win record. While Terry Stotts, Greg Popovich, Rick Carlisle, Brad Stevens, Steve Clifford, and others were in the discussion, Kerr is a well-deserved winner.
Tue, Apr 26, 2016 12:14:00 PM

Warriors coach Steve Kerr hinted that he will let his players decide if they need rest during the final three games of the season.

"We’re going to talk about it Friday," Kerr said. "We’ve sort of been putting it off for as long as we were able to. Now that we have [the No. 1 seed], I’m inclined to give some guys a rest, if they need it. But I’ve also sort of made a pact with the guys that if they’re not tired and not banged up and they want to go for this record, then … so, we’ve got to talk." Stephen Curry and Draymond Green made it clear that they will go for the all-time wins record, so it doesn't sound like they're in too much danger of a DNP.

Steve Kerr said after Tuesday's loss to the Timberwolves that he believes the constant talk surrounding what may be a historic season for the Warriors could be impacting the team's play.

"I do think the constant questions and talk about -- whether it's home win streak or record or whatever -- I think all that stuff does take its toll," said Kerr. "Whether the players know it or not, whether it's a conscious thing or not, and it probably has taken a little bit away from, as I said, our process or our work." Kerr added that while putting forth the best regular-season in NBA history would be a nice accomplishment, a championship remains the ultimate goal for Golden State.
