One of the biggest questions surrounding the NBA Finals is whether Steve Kerr will be healthy enough to coach the Golden State Warriors. Only a day before the series gets underway, interim coach Mike Brown stated that he still doesn’t know.
Mike Brown hasn't heard a decision one way or the other from Steve Kerr whether reigning Coach of the Year feels well enough to go Game 1.

The Warriors have generally won both with and without Kerr on the sideline. Their record setting 73-9 season included a 43-game stint where Luke Walton coached for a recovering Kerr, and Golden State was 39-4 in that stretch. With Brown manning the sidelines in the 2017 postseason, the Warriors have posted a perfect 10-0 record.
If Kerr does not return, Brown will have the opportunity to coach against the Cleveland Cavaliers, who he coached from 2005-2010, and again in the 2013-14 season.
