OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) - Golden State Warriors coach Steve Kerr is feeling better as he deals with complications from back surgery, and hopes to be back on the bench in the coming weeks.
The former Arizona Wildcat, Kerr, attended practice Monday and Tuesday and was at the team's shootaround Wednesday ahead of Golden State's home game against Phoenix.
He says: "What I've learned is that I miss it. I'm still hoping in the next two to three weeks to be back on the bench."
Golden State has given no formal timeline for the coach's return, reiterating Kerr will tell the team when he is ready.
Kerr has been dealing with headaches following two back surgeries. He took a leave of absence the first week of training camp and watched the Warriors' record 24-0 start behind the scenes. Golden State (24-1) is coming off its first defeat Saturday at Milwaukee.
