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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Golden State Warriors GM Bob Myers has been named the 2014-15 Executive of the Year.

Probably Myers greatest move this offseason was one that he didn't make, in refusing to include Klay Thompson in any deal that would have netted the Dubs Kevin Love. He also hired Steve Kerr, and compiled a roster that won 67 games this season, securing the No. 1 seed out West. Myers will become just the second GM in Warriors history to come away with Executive of the Year honors, the first being Dick Vertlieb who compiled the 1974-75 title team.

Steve Kerr shot down Pelicans head coach Monty Williams' suggestion that the Warriors are pumping in crowd noise during games.

Williams was apparently joking when he said his original comments and a lot of folks including us missed that little important point. Kerr responded to those claims by saying, "I know the NBA likes to control a lot of things, but I don't think they can control how loud the fans yell." Noise aside, the Warriors have a two game lead in the series and can now put the series away in New Orleans so that Williams doesn't have to worry about the noise in Oracle anymore.
Apr 21 - 9:18 AM

Steve Kerr said that he will not rest anyone for Tuesday's game vs. the Pelicans.

The Warriors will go with their standard starting lineup of Stephen Curry, Klay Thompson, Harrison Barnes, Draymond Green and Andrew Bogut. Bogut and Andre Iguodala are usually the likely candidates for random rest days, but that will not be the case tonight, so feel free to get those guys into your active lineups.
Apr 7 - 2:52 PM

Steve Kerr said he doesn't plan to rest anyone for Friday's game vs. the Grizzlies.

Andrew Bogut and Andre Iguodala are usually the guys in danger of the random rest day, but owners can feel confident plugging those guys into their active rosters tonight.
Mar 27 - 1:12 PM

Steve Kerr said that he intends to rest some of his guys during Friday's game against the Nuggets, but would not say whom he intends to sit.

Andrew Bogut and Andre Iguodala are the two most obvious candidates for a rest day, and owners can expect an update on this situation following Friday morning's shootaround. If Bogut is given the day off, David Lee or Marreese Speights would have the opportunity to slide into the starting lineup, and they'd be worth a look in daily leagues. Harrison Barnes get all the run he can handle if Iguodala is rested, while Brandon Rush would have the opportunity for extended minutes. Stay tuned.

Jerry West and the Warriors agreed to a two-year extension through 2016-2017 on Wednesday.

West had one year remaining on his current deal, making this a three-year commitment. The extension comes in the midst of reports that West, now 76, was considering retiring for good. Now he and Steve Kerr will be responsible for building a championship team around their backcourt of Steph Curry and Klay Thompson.

The Warriors and general manager Bob Myers agreed to a three-year extension on Thursday.

His deal was due to expire following the 2014-15 season since taking over the job back in April 2012. Myers has helped turned the Warriors around with moves like the Andrew Bogut-Monta Ellis deal as well as doing well in free agency and drafting guys like Draymond Green.

Steve Kerr said on Thursday that he is not expecting the Warriors to make any major roster changes in the wake of the Kevin Love deal.

"All indications are that this is the group we’re going forward with, but you never say never," Kerr said. "I’m coaching the team that’s here, but there’s no question that we feel very confident and comfortable with the group that we have." It will be interesting to see how Kerr's first year on the job will go with an established core already in place.

Celtics assistant coach Ron Adams has agreed to leave Boston to join the Warriors as an assistant under Steve Kerr.

Adams, who hails from California, was reportedly drawn by the chance to coach for a championship contender in his home state. Kerr recently added veteran coach Alvin Gentry to his staff, giving him a deep well of NBA knowledge from which to draw during his rookie season as an NBA head coach.
