Steve Kerr is back in business and getting closer to his old form. Kerr ran the Golden State Warriors practice on Tuesday as interim coach Luke Walton sat out due to illness.

Kerr was out of the circuit since the off-season as he was recovering from complications after a back surgery. “I felt pretty good, but I’m not 100 percent healthwise,” Kerr pointed out. “But I’m getting better, building some strength. Today was a good day.”

Kerr pointed out that Walton will be back for Wednesday’s tie against Utah Jazz. Kerr is pleased with his progress this week and wants to be sure about his health before a full-fledged return to coaching. “This has been a really good week,” Kerr said. “That’s the main thing. I have to keep that going.”

Kerr also clarified he will test himself with a roadtrip to Dallas and Houston to find out whether he can handle the stress of traveling.

“I’m confident I’ll be back on the bench,” Kerr added. “I wouldn’t be here talking to you if I didn’t. I wouldn’t have been here the last nine days or whatever it’s been. Things are moving in the right direction.”

Kerr had two back-to-back surgeries, the first one leading to a leak of fluid from his spinal cord, which followed the Warriors’ first NBA crown in 40 years.
