Steve Kerr traveled with the Warriors for the first time this season for their road game in Los Angeles.
"It’s great, obviously. He had a phenomenal message to the guys," interim head coach Luke Walton said ahead the marquee matchup between the Warriors and Clippers. "It’s nice having him around at home all of the time, so it’s a good feeling to have him with us on the road." Kerr remains on a leave of absence, but perhaps this is a sign that he's getting close to being able to return to the bench. Walton has filled in admirably in Kerr's absence, guiding the defending champs to a 12-0 start. Nov 19 - 3:44 PM

Warriors interim head coach Luke Walton said head coach Steve Kerr is doing better, but still struggling.

Kerr is still recovering from a spinal fluid leak and Walton said it's still tough to gauge where his coach is at right now. We'll keep an eye on Kerr's status, but there have been rumors that he won't return to the bench until after the All-Star Break so Walton may have a few more more of on-the-job training.

Steve Kerr may not return to the Warriors bench until after the All-Star Break.

Kerr is still recovering from a spinal fluid leak and one Warriors player thinks his head coach may not return until February. Kerr's return won't change much for fantasy owners, but we wish him a speedy recovery as he attempts to get back to full health.

Steve Kerr recently admitted that he's "not feeling well enough to coach yet."

There is no timetable for his return. "I am feeling better, so that's the good news. The bad news is I'm not feeling well enough to coach yet," Kerr said. "It's hard because I don't know when that will be. There's no timetable. It's not a sprained ankle, two-to-four weeks type thing. When I feel better, I'll feel better." When asked if he would be back by January 1, Kerr said, "I would hope before then."

Steve Kerr will not be on the sidelines for the Warriors regular-season opener on Tuesday, and it's currently unknown exactly when he'll be able to return to the team.

Luke Walton will serve as the team's interim head coach for however long Kerr is sidelined, but this isn’t likely to have much consequence with regards to fantasy hoops.

Warriors head coach Steve Kerr (back) could travel with the team on Friday for their upcoming road trip.

"I think it’s great," Interim coach Luke Walton said on Thursday. "Obviously, Steve is one of those guys that just having him around makes everything better. He wouldn’t be coming down with us at all if he was still as bad as he was. So I think it shows signs of improvement. I don’t think it means he’ll be back in the next two days, but all we can ask for is that he keeps getting better." Kerr is on track to return to the sidelines for the regular season (and maybe even before), and the good news is that he is expected to make a full recovery.

Steve Kerr is expected to make a full recovery, according to doctors.

Kerr is still having adverse symptoms five weeks after having back surgery, but the director of spine trauama at Cedars-Sinai Spine Center in Los Angeles, Dr. Neel Anand said Kerr should have a full recovery. "The body forms spinal fluid constantly," said Dr. Anand. "As long as it doesn’t continue to leak, he’ll make a full recovery and be back to normal." We'll keep an eye on Kerr's progress, but for now, we'll wish him a speedy recovery.

Steve Kerr was present at the Warriors' practice on Sunday, and he elaborated on the health issue he is currently dealing with.

"I had a spinal fluid leak during the first surgery," said Kerr. "It's very rare, it does happen occasionally, but it happens when there's an accidental nick of the dura that surrounds the spinal cord. But I lost spinal fluid, took about a month to figure out what was going on, a lot of headaches, some other symptoms... Unfortunately, it's not like a sprained ankle, one to two weeks. There's no telling. It's a little bit open-ended, but everyone's confident I'm going to be fine. That's where I am. I'm not going to be put a timetable on when I'm going to come back."

Alvin Gentry believes that Steve Kerr will return to the Warriors by opening night.

''I just think it's easy for him to rest up,'' Gentry said about Kerr's decision take an indefinite leave. ''It's kind of one of those things where he had a procedure in the summer and really he's just trying to rest and get it completely healed before he gets into this maniac schedule that we have. It's just a situation where he is trying to take his time. No reason in the preseason to be on a plane to Butte, Montana or wherever."
Oct 7 - 11:24 AM

Steve Kerr is taking a leave of absence as he continues to recover from two offseason back surgeries, and Luke Walton will serve as the interim head coach while Kerr is away.

It's currently unclear how long Kerr will be away from the team, but Golden State is currently calling it an "indefinite" leave of absence. GM Bob Myers said that while they don't anticipate the recovery process to be long-term, they don't know the exact timeframe for when he'll be back with the Dubs. Hopefully Kerr is back on the bench when the regular-season tips-off, and we'll continue to monitor this situation closely.
Oct 1 - 4:40 PM

Steve Kerr will undergo back surgery on Tuesday in order to address a herniated disk.

He has reportedly been dealing with this issue for a couple of months, but hopefully the Warriors head coach will be back on his feet in no time. Kerr deserves a lot of credit for leading the Warriors to the 2014-15 NBA Championship, and it will be interesting to see if they can repeat their success next year with a similar roster in town.
Jul 28 - 4:12 PM

When Warriors' head coach Steve Kerr was asked if he intended to keep the same starting lineup from Game 4 for Sunday's Game 5 in Oakland he responded: "We could."

The Warriors replaced Andrew Bogut in the starting lineup with Andre Iguodala for Game 4, and that lineup switch resulted in a 21-point blowout win for the Dubs, so it would be shocking if Kerr didn't roll with that same starting unit for Game 5. We likely won't get the lineup notes until just before the tip, but it's a safe bet to assume Iguodala will again run with the starters tonight.
Jun 14 - 6:33 PM

Steve Kerr said that his assistant, Nick U'Ren, was the one that made the suggestion to insert Andre Iguodala in the starting lineup in favor of Andrew Bogut.

"He's behind the bench, he's 28 years old, he's a kid," Kerr said of U'Ren. "We have a staff that is very cooperative. Whoever has the idea, it doesn't matter. And he brought me the idea." U'Ren said he got the idea from watching last year's Finals between the Spurs and the Heat, and he saw the impact that Boris Diaw had when he replaced Tiago Splitter in the starting lineup. The lineup switch resulted in a blowout win for the Warriors, and Kerr’s willingness to hear suggestions from anyone on the Warriors staff is a stark contrast from his previous predecessor.
Jun 12 - 1:54 PM

Steve Kerr disagreed with the NBA's statement that LeBron James' steal against Stephen Curry at the end of Game 3 wasn't a foul.

While channeling his inner snark, Kerr gave his reaction to the NBA's statement saying the officials didn't make a mistake on the call. "It was the right call. Slide tackling is perfectly legal. So is traveling. We're going to teach it next season." While Kerr may not agree with the call, he'll need to move on as the Warriors face what is essentially a must-win Game 4 on Thursday night.
Jun 11 - 1:30 PM

Coach Steve Kerr said he's not worried about the flight delay to Houston for Game 3.

"We weren’t sitting on the runway for four hours," Kerr said. "We knew the flight was going to be delayed quite a bit, so everybody either went home or went back to the facility or went and got something to eat. I wasn’t nearly as bad as it could have been." Stephen Curry hit the driving range and the other teammates weren't held up either. This shouldn't affect the outcome tonight.
