Golden State Warriors announced Thursday that head coach Steve Kerr will take a leave of absence ti recover from back surgery.

He will be replaced on an interim basis by Luke Walton, per ESPN:

"After the first two days of training camp, I realized I need to take a step back and focus on my rehabilitation in order to be ready for the grind of another NBA season," Kerr said in a statement. "As I noted last week, my summer was difficult and no fun due to the multiple back surgeries. At this point, I simply want to get healthy and back to my normal daily routine on and off the court."
Kerr had two surgeries to repair a ruptured disk in his back, which he injured during Game 5 of the NBA Finals.
