(TSX / STATS) -- The Golden State Warriors are two wins away from a third straight Western Conference title and ailing head coach Steve Kerr will make the trip to San Antonio for Game 3.

Kerr is on an indefinite leave of absence while he deals with pain and other issues from his 2015 back surgery. General manager Bob Myers said Wednesday that Kerr will make the trip on Thursday.

"He will be on the trip," Myers said on 95.7 The Game in San Francisco.

It is unclear where Kerr will be or what he will be doing. His activity level has increased since he started experiencing problems.

Assistant Mike Brown will continue to serve as head coach. Brown was on the sidelines as Golden State rolled to a 136-100 rout over the Spurs on Tuesday.

Kerr sat in the locker room for the first two games and also addressed his team during halftime in both games. He began attending practices Saturday and it was the first time he had been on the floor with the team since April 21.
