The Warriors have quickly gone from dangerous playoff team to possibly an easy first round out.

The team announced late Monday defensive anchor Andrew Bogut is out indefinitely because of a fractured rib. His timetable is unknown, hence indefinitely.

The injury happened in the fourth quarter of Sunday's overtime loss to the Blazers.

The Warriors are also missing forward David Lee, who is listed out indefinitely with a hamstring injury. Which means the Warriors will likely enter the postseason without their starting front line in a potential matchup against formidable interior duo of Blake Griffin and DeAndre Jordan.

Bogut, 29, has dealt with injuries the past few seasons, but has missed just 13 games so far this season for the Warriors. With him in the defensive interior, the Warriors are a much better team (allow just 98.8 points per 100 possessions with him on the floor, 100.5 with him off).

In 67 games this season, Bogut is averaging 7.3 points, 10.0 rebounds, 1.7 assists and 1.81 blocks in 26.4 minutes, while shooting 62.7 percent from the floor.
