After missing his team’s first 25 games of the season, Golden State Warriors coach Steve Kerr plans to increase his workload during their upcoming five-game homestand in hopes of proving he can handle the rigors of an eventual return to the bench this season.

Warriors general manager Bob Myers, while stressing that there remains no timetable for a return to game coaching for Kerr in the wake of complications stemming from two offseason back surgeries, told ESPN on Tuesday that Kerr plans to be more vocal and active on the practice floor over the next two weeks to “test” his readiness for a full-fledged return to the job.
