Rumor: Steve Kerr targeting Saturday return

Two weeks ago, Warriors coach Steve Kerr said he hoped to return in 2-3 weeks.

Though Kerr has lamented the difficulty of predicting when he’d feel better after his back surgeries, he might remain on that timeline.

Adam Lauridsen of Fast Break:

That’d be against the Nuggets after tonight’s game at the Rockets.

If Kerr returns Saturday, he’d face a very winnable stretch of games:

  • vs. Nuggets
  • vs. Hornets
  • at Lakers
  • at Trail Blazers
  • at Kings
  • vs. Heat
  • at Nuggets
  • vs. Lakers

That’s a nice opportunity to remind everyone where you’re the head coach and Luke Walton, who has impressed as an interim coach, is an assistant.

The 29-2 Warriors haven’t faced much adversity this season, but they’re being tested now with Stephen Curry sidelined. Kerr could help guide them through this stretch – or maybe even have his return coincide with Curry’s, which would provide another chance for Kerr to look better.

Kerr has already proven he’s a good coach, but seeing him in action would be a nice reminder.
