Warriors' Kerr returns to practice for 1st time in 3 weeks

Warriors' Kerr returns to practice for 1st time in 3 weeks

Kerr watched the game from the Warriors' locker room and he delivered a motivational halftime speech to his team, who was down by 20 points at his point.

Now, he is recovering from his latest procedure to alleviate debilitating symptoms stemming from complications from two back surgeries in 2015 following the Warriors' first championship in 40 years.

Fortunately, cameras were there to capture Kerr's words.

And at halftime, with video cameras rolling, it was Kerr and not assistant coach Mike Brown who addressed the team. "Let's get three stops in a row and the push will come from that". So, get your poise back, wings run like insane. The pace will come from that. He was back Saturday for a game-planning session before practice. "Settle in. We'll be all right".

"It's obviously great any time you get to hear his voice, see his face", Stephen Curry said after practice. "He's obviously been doing his homework in between, his downtime to help us get prepared for the series". But everyone was undoubtedly relieved to see him ambulatory on Saturday during practice - somewhat active, even - walking the court and talking to players. When we see him it gives us a little bit of juice. "The more that he can be around, the better feel that all of us have". While initially defeating the Portland Trail Blazers, the Warriors most recently ousted the Utah Jazz.

It is also worth noting that the ailing Kerr was present at a coaches' meeting on Friday as well. A source told ESPN's Michael C. Wright that Leonard could have played in Game 6 on Thursday night, but the Spurs decided they'd rather have him healthy for Sunday.
