Andrew Bogut offers no timeline on injury return

Kyle Terada-US PRESSWIRE

The Warriors still have no idea when All-Star-caliber big man Andrew Bogut will return to the lineup.

Golden State Warriors center Andrew Bogut has missed all but four games this season after having ankle surgery, and in his first comments since November, he gave no indication of when he could return.

With the Warriors in Milwaukee on Saturday to play the Bucks, his former team, Bogut talked with reporters and Rusty Simmons of the San Francisco Chronicle has several comments.

"It is definitely taking a lot longer than we expected. I tried to give it a go at the start of the season, and it blew up," Bogut told reporters. "I lost my mobility and flexibility back in November, and I decided it was smart to try and be ready for the long haul, rather than play in five-game increments and then have to take time off. It's frustrating. Nobody wants to be hurt. I don't want to be hurt. At the same time, I've got no choice but to go through this process, do the right things and then come back strong."

Bogut also noted that because the Warriors are a surprising 26-17 and fifth in the Western Conference without him, he has less pressure on him to return quickly. Bogut didn't play for the Warriors because of the injury after they traded Monta Ellis for him mid-season last year.
