Steve Kerr might be coaching the Warriors again before their playoff run ends, but he's certainly not going to rush it.

According to's Monte Poole, Kerr said he's feeling somewhat better and plans to visit specialists from Stanford University as the next step in alleviating symptoms stemming from back surgery following the 2014-15 season.

From Poole:

[Kerr] revealed to that in recent days he has spoken to several people who have experienced the debilitating effects of a cerebrospinal fluid leak and been able to overcome it. He says that because his symptoms have intensified over the past week, in an odd twist, that may make it easier for specialists to trace the precise source.

"That's what the next few days are all about," Kerr said, standing down the hallway from the visitor's locker room. "They're trying to find it. If they can find it, they can fix it."

He'll begin in the coming days by consulting with specialists at Stanford Medical Center, which has some of the more respected surgeons in the world.

Though Kerr requested that we not reveal certain elements of what's ahead, he said he felt somewhat better than had a few days ago. Maybe part of that was hearing the comeback stories of others.

Kerr missed the final two games of the Warriors' first-round sweep over the Portland Trail Blazers, with assistant coach Mike Brown filling in during his absence.

Kerr has reportedly gained confidence from the story of a former NFL executive who dealt with similar problems and has now fully recovered.

"He's 100 percent," Kerr said. "So I'm hopeful. And he's not the only one."

The Warriors will face the winner of the Clippers-Jazz series in the second round, but it sounds like Kerr is more concerned with regaining the ability to live a normal life than returning to coaching in the near future.
