The return of the mysterious missing Cover it Live in-game snarkfest.
UPDATED: Nelson just met with the media and said his back is “doing OK,” even as he wore an ice bag on it. Smart will be the coach working the sideline during the game, since going from sitting to standing is one of the things that pains Nelson the most right now.
Maybe he just didn’t want to miss the “big hug” that Stephen Jackson has promised him, but Don Nelson will coach tonight against the Charlotte Bobcats despite painful back spasms, according to general manager Larry Riley.
“We’ll see how long he lasts,” Riley joked.
Nelson complained of the back problem Thursday after practice and missed the Warriors’ shootaround Friday morning because of them. If Nelson is indeed unable to continue, Keith Smart will take over. Smart went 3-7 subbing in November and December when Nelson suffered from pneumonia.

Less than a week ago, Anthony Tolliver was toiling in the D-League. Tonight, in his third NBA game, he’ll start for the Warriors at power forward. Corey Maggette is simply playing too well — and there are too few healthy smalls on the roster — for Don Nelson to move him out of the 3.
Also: Ronny Turiaf, wearing a metal-frame brace on his left knee, is expected to give it a go tonight, which means Nelson will have nine “healthy” players available after three straight games with the league-mandated minimum of eight on call.
