This was Kerr's first practice since he took a leave of absence from the team due to back issues. You know he misses being around the day-to-day routine and the atmosphere of practice and locker rooms and games and all that.

"It was just nice to hear his voice really", Curry said.

Per Anthony Slater of the Mercury News, Warriors general manager Bob Myers recently said there is no timetable for Kerr's return to the sidelines after the coach underwent a spinal leak procedure to alleviate pain. "He's obviously been doing his homework in between, his downtime to help us get prepared for the series". But everyone was undoubtedly relieved to see him ambulatory on Saturday during practice - somewhat active, even - walking the court and talking to players. "Hopefully, he's feeling better".

Brown was impressed with Kerr's demeanour and commitment the last couple days.

He's the guy that laid the foundation and got everybody headed in the right directions. He did not attend the games during the previous series against the Utah Jazz. A source told ESPN's Michael C. Wright that Leonard could have played in Game 6 on Thursday night, but the Spurs decided they'd rather have him healthy for Sunday. "We want him around and it's good for him to be around".
