Andrew Bogut to be shut down for 7-10 days

Warriors center Andrew Bogut will be shut down for 7-10 days as he continues to recover from ankle surgery.

Andrew Bogut will make his Golden State Warriors debut against the Phoenix Suns on Wednesday night.


Could Andrew Bogut miss opening night?

The Golden State Warriors have been hoping that injured center Andrew Bogut would be ready to return to action for opening night, but it's looking less and less likely that a return in time for the team's season opener is in the cards, according to a report from the San Jose Mercury News.

Bogut, who fractured his left ankle in January while with the Milwaukee Bucks, will be examined by Dr. Richard Ferkel on Monday when the Warriors are in Los Angeles to take on the Clippers in a preseason game. While the seven-year veteran is hopeful for an Oct. 31 return, a source has said that even if Bogut were to check out at 90 percent after Monday's examination, he wouldn't be cleared to play.

Time is running out, as the Warriors' preseason schedule wraps up on Tuesday with a game in Phoenix, and the team has just eight days between their final exhibition and the season opener against Suns.


Warriors' Andrew Bogut not yet ready for 5-on-5

Golden State Warriors center Andrew Bogut is still on pace to play in the team's season opener Oct. 31, but has yet to be cleared for five-on-five play, Warriors general manager Bob Myers told on Thursday.

Bogut is recovering from a fractured left ankle that was suffered in January and served as a prelude for his trade from the Milwaukee Bucks to Golden State in March.

Though not quite ready for game action yet, Myers says Bogut is still clearing daily goals, such as jumping drills and tests of lateral movement.

"I understand that there's a very intense focus on our centers, and it's magnified because of who (Andrew Bogut) is," Myers said of the 2005 NBA Draft's No. 1 overall pick, who is also known as one of the better defensive centers in the league.

The team hopes Bogut will be able to participate in some preseason action in preparation for the regular season, Myers said.
