Golden State Warriors Coach
Steve Kerr will miss the season opener as he continues to recover from back surgery.
General Manager Bob Myers said interim coach Luke Walton will coach the team for the season opener against New Orleans on Tuesday night in Oakland. Kerr will be on hand for the bannerraising ceremony but is not ready to take back the coaching duties.
Kerr has been sidelined since the opening week of training camp because of complications from offseason back surgery.
The Warriors do not know when he will be healthy enough to return. . . .
Dallas waived 34-year-old center Samuel Dalembert, who spent the 2013-14 season with the Mavericks.
