Steve Kerr’s battle with back surgery complications will go on for a while but the Golden State Warriors feel they will have their head coach back sooner rather than later.
“Look, what he’s facing is fixable,” Myers said in Oakland. “It’s just finding the issue and solving it. So I think that’s how you have to differentiate what he’s going through with somebody else.
“Some things are not fixable in life. Some things that confront people don’t have solutions. There is a solution here. We just need to discover it, and we will. I’m confident we will.”
Kerr, 51, wasn’t on the bench for Games 3 and 4 of the Warriors’ first-round sweep of the Trail Blazers as he dealt with painful symptoms related to two back surgeries. He is scheduled to be examined at Stanford this week and won’t rejoin the team until he is feeling better. Kerr also missed the first 43 games of last season dealing with the issues.
“It’s not easy, but it’s not insurmountable,” Myers said. “This one, we will overcome it. And those aren’t just words, that’s the truth. I wouldn’t put a time on it, but that’s how I feel.”
