The Warriors open up their Western Conference Semifinals series on Tuesday night against the Jazz.
Steve Kerr -- who missed Games 3 and 4 against the Blazers -- remains out indefinitely.
"I think the way we look at it is plan on him (Kerr) not coming back," Draymond Green told reporters on Monday. "That's the way we're approaching this thing ... Mike Brown is our coach, we have the rest of our staff, and that's who we're rolling with.
"We're gonna hope and pray that Steve gets better and can get back. But at the end of the day, his health is more important than anything ... we know how bad he wanted to be here and how bad we would love for him to be here. But at the end of the day, he needs to take care of what he has to take care of.
"And whether that's this year or next year, then you know, we're ready. But we're gonna approach this entire thing as 'Steve isn't coming back.' And that's our approach for this entire playoffs until we hear otherwise..."
Game 2 is on Thursday and Games 3 and 4 are on Saturday and Monday respectively.
