Warriors vs. Spurs: Steve Kerr attends Game 1, joins Golden State in locker room

Warriors coach Steve Kerr appears to be feeling better after he underwent a spinal cord leak procedure last week in an attempt to alleviate complications stemming from a 2015 back surgery.

Kerr attended practice with the Warriors on Saturday, and was shown in the Warriors locker room before Game 1 of the Western Conference finals against the Spurs on Sunday, following reports that he would be in attendance.

Kerr remains out indefinitely while he hopes to see his symptoms -- including headaches and nausea -- disappear, but it's a good sign that he feels healthy enough to begin attending practices and games. Warriors assistant Mike Brown will continue to coach the team in Kerr's absence.

After receiving back surgery in 2015, Kerr missed the opening of the 2015-16 season due to severe complications. He had coached the entire 2016-17 season until Game 3 of the Warriors' opening-round series against the Trail Blazers, when he announced he would be out indefinitely.
