Steve Kerr will join the Warriors on their upcoming trip to San Antonio, though the ailing head coach isn’t necessarily expected to coach in Games 3 and 4 of the Western Conference finals. The news, which general manager Bob Myers relayed during an interview Wednesday afternoon with 95.7 the Game, is the latest sign of Kerr’s progress. After missing Games 3 and 4 of the conference semifinals against Utah to undergo a spinal cord leak procedure on his back at Duke University, Kerr attended practices, team meetings and Games 1 and 2 against the Spurs.

In Kerr’s absence, acting head coach Mike Brown has guided the Warriors to eight straight wins. Golden State is 10-0 in the playoffs, one win shy of the NBA record for the best postseason start in history.
