Warriors' Kerr returns to practice for 1st time in 3 weeks

The Spurs came out on fire, and had built a 20-point lead by halftime.

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.

Fortunately, cameras were there to capture Kerr's words.

Kerr sat down and chatted with acting coach Mike Brown for a long stint before calling it a day.

Indeed, after Kawhi Leonard left the game with an ankle injury, the Warriors came back on a huge run and eventually won the game, 113-111.

Kerr attended his first full practice Saturday since taking that leave of absence; however, the Warriors maintain there is still no timetable for his return.

"He's watching the game, so he sees a lot of different angles", Curry said. "Settle in. We'll be all right".

Steph Curry said it was great to see Kerr's face and hear his voice at practice.

Kerr has not coached the Warriors since round one of the National Basketball Association playoffs this season due to recurring back trouble. "He's obviously been doing his homework in between. It's been very hard for him, and he's shown a lot of courage getting through what he's gotten through". "Not just the players, but us as a staff, so it was good to see him out here today". "I hope he's feeling better".

Kerr had been at Duke University Medical Center receiving treatment for his symptoms, which include headaches, nausea and blurred vision, during the Warriors' second-round series against the Jazz. "If he asks me anything, I tell him to go urinate in a bucket".
