Game 4 Preview: Golden State Warriors vs. Portland Trail Blazers

Now, after Kerr's announcement Sunday that he will take an indefinite break from in-game coaching, Brown can begin to settle into his new role of interim head coach.

"I'm not going to go into details on the symptoms". The big man missed the final seven games of the regular season and the first two games of the playoffs with a nondisplaced fracture in his right leg. "It's the discomfort. The symptoms, for whatever reason, took a turn for the worse maybe five days ago".

He returned for Saturday night's 119-113 Portland loss in Game 3, putting up two points and 11 rebounds in under 17 minutes of play.

It is not known when Kerr might return, but he is expected to seek treatment in the San Francisco Bay Area in the coming days.

A first-year assistant for Golden State, Brown has plenty of experience as former head coach of the Cleveland Cavaliers and the Los Angeles Lakers.

"Our defense kind of got hit there in the first quarter, we knew that they were going to come after us, we had to expect that". I can say that from the bottom of my heart. "Rehab, rehab, rehab. Don't let anybody get in there".

"This is not going to be a case where I'm coaching one night and not coaching the next", Kerr told reporters on Saturday from the team hotel. He won an NBA Coach of the Year Award in 2009, but when LeBron bounced, so did his winning ways.

Durant missed the previous two games with a left calf strain he suffered in the second half of the first game of the series.

Durant suffered the injury to his left calf during the team's Game 1 victory and had been questionable leading into each game since.

That win over the Spurs marked Golden State's fourth 20-point comeback victory over the last three seasons, tying the Pacers for the most such wins in the National Basketball Association during that span.

Warriors guard Shaun Livingston, who has a right index finger sprain and hand contusion, and swingman Matt Barnes, who has a sprained right ankle, also participated in Monday's shootaround. Durant missed Games 2 and 3 with the injury.

"You guys saw me at the end of Game 2, I was very uncomfortable", Kerr said.

A day later, Warriors GM Bob Myers was scheduled to address the media, but Kerr showed up instead and said he wouldn't be available for Game 4, either. "We all made a decision to give it a try".
