Coach Steve Kerr will travel with the Warriors for Game 3 on Saturday.

This is great to hear that he's coming along. Kerr has been with the team this week and even gave a halftime speech in Game 1. His Warriors became just the fifth team ever to start the playoffs 10-0 with Mike Brown holding down the fort just fine.
May 17 - 4:34 PM

Warriors head coach Steve Kerr (back) attended the Warriors practice on Monday.

According to David West, Kerr was "pretty active" in his second practice back since he started his leave of absence. We already know that Kerr watched Game 1 vs. the Cavaliers in the locker room and delivered a halftime speech to his team, so it sounds like he could be nearing a return to the sidelines. To be clear, the Warriors still aren't providing a timetable.

Warriors coach Steve Kerr is planning to attend Game 1 vs. the Spurs on Sunday.

He will merely be a spectator if he shows up, as he hasn't been cleared to return to the bench yet and there's no timetable for that either. Kerr was at Golden State's practice on Saturday, so hopefully he's getting closer. Assistant coach Mike Brown will hold down the fort until further notice.
May 14 - 1:53 PM

Coach Steve Kerr was back at practice on Saturday.

It's the first time he was back at practice since he started his leave of absence. Based on the pictures and videos at practice, he's still not 100 percent ready to be on the sidelines because he wasn't moving around much. He doesn't have a timetable to return and coach Mike Brown will continue to hold down the fort.
May 13 - 4:52 PM

Warriors owner Joe Lacob hinted that head coach Steve Kerr could be back on the sidelines soon.

Kerr underwent a spinal cord leak procedure on Friday and Lacob believes that he could return "sooner rather than later." Kerr has had complications with his back for two years, but Lacob is hopeful that Friday's procedure will solve the issue for good. While a return in the second round is unlikely, maybe Kerr will be able to return for the Conference Finals at some point if the Warriors can put away the Jazz.
May 7 - 9:43 AM

ESPN's Ramona Shelburne is reporting that it is "very unlikely" coach Steve Kerr will return during the Warriors second-round series against the Jazz.

The report states that Kerr is seeing a specialist at Duke University Medical Center on Friday and receiving treatment aimed at alleviating the symptoms that have forced him to take a temporary leave of absence from the team. Mike Brown will continue to serve as the team's interim head coach.
May 5 - 12:12 PM

Steve Kerr will not be coaching in Game 1 of Round 2 against Utah on Tuesday, and as of right now, he's not expected back anytime soon.

Mike Brown will continue to hold down the fort in Kerr's absence, and while Kerr will not be present on the sidelines during games, he's still an active voice at coaches meetings and has regular daily phone calls with Brown. "The way we look at it is — plan on him not coming back," Draymond Green said. "Mike Brown is our coach... We’re going to hope and pray that Steve gets better and can get back, but at the end of the day, his health is more important than anything."
May 1 - 4:22 PM

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.
Apr 23 - 9:27 AM

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.
Fri, Nov 25, 2016 02:09:00 PM

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.
Sat, Nov 19, 2016 07:04:00 PM

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.
Wed, Oct 19, 2016 02:13:00 PM

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.
