Bogut, who missed a practice earlier this week because of his back, has started the last two games for the Warriors. Bogut has scored a combined 11 points with six rebounds, four assists and four blocked shots in 33 minutes in those two starts. Fortunately for Golden State, and less so for fantasy owners, the Warriors are confident in backup Festus Ezeli was well as their smaller lineup, both of which conspire to keep Bogut's minutes capped.
Bogut (back) will play Friday in Phoenix, Rusty Simmons of The San Francisco Chronicle reports. Bogut sat out of Wednesday's practice due to a tweaked back, and as a result was questionable for Friday's contest. However, interim head coach Luke Walton confirmed Friday evening that Bogut will play. Expect him to play his normal workload.
Bogut (back) sat out of practice Wednesday, Monte Poole of CSN Bay Area reports. Bogut slightly tweaked his back during Tuesday's game against the Lakers, and is dealing with stiffness as a result. The injury is minor and shouldn't warrant any concern moving forward. Fantasy owners can expect him to be on the court Friday when the Warriors take on the Suns.
Bogut appeared to teak his back in Tuesday's game against the Lakers, but remained on the court and posted eight points (4-7 FG), seven rebounds, two assists, and two blocks in 21 minutes. Bogut has had his fair share of injuries throughout his career, so any form of tweak is a reason for some kind of panic. That being said, he didn't need to leave to game, and owners will just have to hope that his two days off will help him recover in time for Friday's game.
Bogut scored 13 points (5-6 FG, 3-6 FT) and collected six rebounds, two assists, one steal, and one blocked shot over 17 minutes in his return to the starting lineup Tuesday against the Raptors. Bogut now has two back-to-back double-digit scoring games after he earned back his starting role from Festus Ezeli following a monstrous 10-point, 18-rebound effort in last Saturday's overtime victory over the Raptors. Ezeli ended up seeing more minutes (22) than Bogut did on Tuesday, but that's likely due largely to Bogut battling foul trouble on the evening. Bogut still figures to assume the greater share of the playing time at center most nights, though he certainly won't dominate the minutes.
