According to Warriors.com, Andrew Bogut will not be active for the Golden State Warriors next three games as he continues to rehab his surgically repaired left ankle. Bogut has only appeared in four games this season on a conservative 18 minutes per game.

As we all know Bogut was acquired last season via Monta Ellis in the Dubs attempt to shore up their lack of a formidable defensive presence. In theory it was a solid move as Bogut lead the league with 2.6 blocks just two years ago, it just hasn’t panned out quite as they would have liked so far.

Fortunately even with Bogut sidelined, Golden State still ranks 11th in defensive efficiency. However, they are allowing the 15th highest field goal percentage with shots attempted at the rim despite ranking 28th in opponents field goal attempts within three feet. (via Hoopdata).

They also rank 5th in points allowed per game at 100.8 to their own 98.5 points, giving them a -1.8 points per game differential.

Warriors.com also reported:

It is anticipated that Bogut will begin running on the AlterG treadmill later this week with the hopes of returning to practice activity with the team next Monday. His progress will continue to be evaluated and monitored by the team’s medical staff and updates will be provided as appropriate.

Golden State will face the Brooklyn Nets and Minnesota Timberwolves at home and the Denver Nuggets on the road before Monday. Fortunately, there will be a five day window following that condensed stretch for Bogut to practice and readjust before facing the Denver Nuggets at home on national television. You can catch the game, and hopefully Bogut, on TNT at 10:30PM ET.

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. Well, the game was enthralling, but not very competitive. Stephen Curry put on a clinic, and was dribbling circles around the Spurs throughout. Here's some evidence. 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.
