NBA Rumors: Andrew Bogut Will Make Golden State Warriors Debut Tonight

+Read full article
Andrew Bogut Golden State Warriors

Jason O. Watson-US PRESSWIRE

In late January ,while still a member of the Milwaukee Bucks, center Andrew Bogut fractured his left ankle and after being acquired by the Golden State Warriors in a trade he had arthroscopic surgery. As a result he’s been rehabbing the injury and this means there’s a possibility of him not being ready for the season opener tonight.

What will determine if he will play or not will be the shootaround and if he feels any soreness. According to head coach Mark Jackson “if he plays, he’ll start.” If he does not play rookie Festus Ezeli will start and Andris Biedrins  is the backup.

Bogut did get good news a little over a week ago from the doctor who operated on the ankle, and even better this week he has been a full participant in practice the last two days. Meaning that there’s a great chance that he will be in the starting lineup tonight against the Phoenix Suns.

The Warriors will limit his minutes since he did not play in the preseason and expect him to receive between 15-20 minutes tonight. He does get a test immediately especially at the defensive end as he faces one of the best centers in the NBA in Marcin Gortat.

Even though he’s yet to play a game since he arrived with the team he is arguably the most important player on the roster. When he’s healthy he is one of the better defensive centers in the league and is among the best at rebounding the basketball.

Stephen Curry Puts On A Clinic Against Spurs

NBA fans and media alike were incredibly excited for the first meeting of the San Antonio Spurs and Golden State Warriors this season, and many expected an uber-competitive game to take place on Monday night.

If that floater wasn't epic enough, in the second-half Curry added this drive in which he pulled the magic out on Jonathon Simmons.
