Symptoms from previous surgeries to keep Warriors' Steve Kerr out

April 24, 2017

PORTLAND, Ore. -- Golden State Warriors coach Steve Kerr said Sunday he won't return to the sideline until he can find a remedy for the painful symptoms he's experiencing due to complications from back surgery almost two years ago.

He acknowledged this could keep him out the remainder of the playoffs.

"This is not going to be a case where I'm coaching one night and not coaching the next," Kerr said. "I'm not going to do that to our team, to our staff. We're hoping that over the next week or two, or whatever it is, I can start to make a definitive realization, a reduction, or just feel it that I'm going to do this or not."

Kerr missed the Warriors' Game 3 win over the Portland Trail Blazers on Saturday. Assistant coach Mike Brown served as the acting head coach....

Green finished the evening with an impressive stat line of nine points, eight rebounds, seven assists, two steals and a game-high six blocks, but his verbal psychological edge was just as effective....

Frustrated Kevin Durant still uncertain for Game 3

April 22, 2017

OAKLAND, Calif. -- Kevin Durant dealt with so much scrutiny when he decided to join Golden State last July, he keeps reminding himself of that and considering the big picture as he waits again to get healthy and help his team.

"It's not life or death. I'm not on my death bed," Durant said Friday. "I got on the court today. It's not the end of the world. ... When I came here a lot of people in this basketball bubble made it feel like it was the worst thing I ever did in life. It felt like I killed somebody. So, I have to step back and look at it and realize it's not serious at all. It's basketball. That's all it is, it's just basketball."

Durant participated in a light practice and was still listed as questionable to play in Saturday's Game 3 of the playoffs at Portland because of a strained left calf....

Kyle Terada/USA TODAY SportsOAKLAND, Calif. -- Kevin Durant said he felt ready to play in Golden State's Game 2 playoff win Wednesday, yet the Warriors opted to be cautious with their superstar as he nurses a strained left calf.

Durant posted an update about his injury during a livestream on his personal YouTube channel Thursday evening. He is hopeful of playing in Saturday's Game 3 at Portland as the Warriors try to take a 3-0 lead in the first-round series, though coach Steve Kerr said being up two games could affect any decision.

"I miss being out there with them, and hopefully I'm out there the next game. Speaking of that, I have a little calf injury," Durant said, showing his left calf wrapped with blue tape. "Unfortunate that I pulled my calf in Game 1 in the third quarter. It felt good to finish the game, but afterward it tightened up on me a little bit and I was sore for the next few days."...
