Warriors coach Kerr finally returns to practice

Houston Rockets guard James Harden and head coach Gregg Popovich share the sadness after their loss

Seeing the reigning National Basketball Association coach of the year on the practice floor for the first time in more than three weeks had acting Golden State coach Mike Brown in great spirits.

Assistant Coach Mike Brown has held his own and been successful in Kerr's absence, and the team is ready to go to battle with or without him on the sideline.

Kerr, 51, has not been on the bench since Game 2 of a first-round playoff series against the Portland Trail Blazers on April 19 because of recurring issues resulting from back surgery two years ago.

"It's great any time you can hear his voice, see his face", said Curry. Afterward he said Kerr's speech meant a lot. The Golden State Warriors coach, who has been out and dealing with issues related to leaking spinal cord fluid, was at practice and in the building for the matchup against the San Antonio Spurs.

Plus, he already has made a solid mark on this team and, as with the first two rounds, the Warriors are locked in and ready to rumble, whether it is Brown or Kerr calling the plays.

The Yankees announced the move Sunday, May 14, before the first game of a day-night doubleheader against the Houston Astros. He underwent an MRI on Saturday morning that did not show any evidence of damage to his shoulder.

"For me it's a little different because I hear his voice a couple times a day", Brown said. You really enjoy that, because he's our leader. "And so the more he can be around, the better feel that all of us have ... it was good to see him out here today". He's the guy that laid the foundation and got everybody headed in the right directions.

No. 1 GOLDEN STATE WARRIORS (67-15, 8-0) vs.

Leonard sat out much of the fourth quarter of Game 5 against the Rockets and didn't take the court for overtime after he came down on the foot of James Harden while turning to run up the court with 5 minutes, 37 seconds left in the third quarter.

It is also worth noting that the ailing Kerr was present at a coaches' meeting on Friday as well.
