Report: Warriors coach Steve Kerr could return for Game 2


Someone leaked that Warriors coach Steve Kerr could return in the NBA Finals.

Now, the reports are getting more specific.

Ramona Shelburne and Chris Haynes of ESPN:

If Golden State Warriors head coach Steve Kerr feels well over the next few days without any setbacks, there remains some optimism he could coach Sunday in Game 2 of the NBA Finals against the Cleveland Cavaliers, sources told ESPN.

The Warriors obviously didn’t need Kerr in Game 1, routing Cleveland with Mike Brown in charge.

But it seems Kerr is on track to return. If he’s healthy, he should. Kerr helped Golden State get this far, he deserves a seat on the bench without over-the-top concerns about disruption.
