Steve Kerr could resume coaching Warriors this weekend

DALLAS -- Golden State Warriors coach Steve Kerr could resume his duties as soon as this weekend, although no firm timetable has been set.

Kerr joined the team for its two-game trip to Texas, which began Wednesday with a 114-91 loss to Dallas and ends Thursday in Houston. It's the first multigame trip this season for Kerr, who has been sidelined since experiencing serious complications following offseason back surgery. He traveled to one game against the Clippers in Los Angeles earlier this season.

"It's obviously a possibility," interim coach Luke Walton said of Kerr's potential return to the bench this weekend. "He hasn't said he's going to. To be honest, I don't think he knows yet. I think that's part of why he's on this road trip, to see how his body handles the travel and getting into Houston at 1 a.m. tonight to turn around and play again then get on another plane and fly home and get in late again. So that's part of why he's here on this trip, whether or not this weekend is a realistic return or not."

Kerr is declining interview requests until he resumes coaching duties, according to a Warriors spokesman.
