(Reuters) - Golden State Warriors head coach Steve Kerr will take charge of the team for the remainder of the NBA Finals, he told reporters on Sunday.
He relinquished his role during the first round of the playoffs in late April due to complications resulting from back surgery two years ago.
Speaking shortly before Game Two against the Cleveland Cavaliers, Kerr said he was feeling somewhat better.
“I wanted to string together a few good days,” he told reporters. “I did that. I’m excited, and it’s good to be back.”
The Warriors lead the series 1-0.
