Steve Kerr could resume his duties as head coach of the Golden State Warriors this weekend, though no firm timetable has been set.
Kerr joined the Warriors for their two-game trip to Texas.
"It's obviously a possibility," interim coach Luke Walton said of Kerr's potential return to the bench this weekend. "He hasn't said he's going to. To be honest, I don't think he knows yet. I think that's part of why he's on this road trip, to see how his body handles the travel and getting into Houston at 1 a.m. tonight to turn around and play again then get on another plane and fly home and get in late again. So that's part of why he's here on this trip, whether or not this weekend is a realistic return or not."
Kerr is declining interview requests until he resumes coaching duties, according to a Warriors spokesman.
The Warriors host the Nuggets on Saturday for their first game of 2016.
