Warriors' Kerr to pursue more answers for health issues

OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) Golden State Warriors coach Steve Kerr will be given time throughout the summer to explore medical options that could alleviate the symptoms he still experiences nearly two years after a spinal fluid leak from back surgery.

General manager Bob Myers said Monday that Kerr would have time off as needed in the coming weeks to find more options to better his long-term health, and Kerr said he would be traveling to do so.

"I think at the point we're at now, it's what makes you 5-10-15 percent better? And that's what he's going to pursue and explore with our blessing," Myers said. "The hope is he got back to the place he was prior to leaving in Portland, which is not where he wants to be but he can coach. There's a little bit of a misconception that stepping away would help him heal. And I tried to dispel that and you should ask him, because I think even he gets a little offended at the notion of, `Just step away and go get better.' I said this before, this is where he feels the best, which may be counterintuitive to what people think. It's not that the job diminishes him in any way. Actually, the job, I would say, propels him."
