The Golden State Warriors will be without head coach Steve Kerr for tonight’s Game 4 against Memphis.
Kerr has tested positive for COVID-19 and has entered league health and safety protocols. He’ll be replaced by assistant coach Mike Brown.
It’s been quite a couple of days for Brown, who on Sunday evening was hired as the new head coach of the Sacramento Kings.
The Warriors not having Kerr leaves a major void to be filled, but his absence might not even be the most important one of the game.
Grizzlies point guard Ja Morant was just officially ruled out after he injured his knee in the fourth quarter of Game 3. Memphis will have to tie the series without its biggest star.
Game 4 between the Grizzlies and Warriors will tip off at 10 p.m. ET on TNT.
