Warriors coach Steve Kerr showed Andrew Bogut how he could become more involved offensively with the implementation of a "triangle-facilitator type of role."
"[Kerr] wanted me to be a bit more aggressive offensively and run through me a little more, so that’s always good to hear," Bogut said. He added that he was "definitely" impressed by Kerr, who flew to Australia to meet with his veteran center. Bogut's 15 DNPs took a toll last season but when healthy he was a mid-round fantasy option -- unfortunately a bigger offensive role is something of a double-edged sword, as increased scoring will likely be accompanied by more FT attempts (34.4 percent at the line last season).

Andrew Bogut (ribs) will not participate in this year's FIBA World Cup.

Bogut fractured his rib nine weeks ago, an injury that kept him from playing during the 2014 playoffs, and he is still not 100 percent. "My rib is not 100 percent and I’m still not back into full training," Bogut told The Daily Telegraph. "I can’t see myself playing through the Worlds and a full NBA season. I’ve spent the last three or four seasons rehabbing injuries so this is the first time I can get focused on getting in the gym and getting better."

Andrew Bogut took to twitter to express his excitement about an upcoming meeting between he and his new coach Steve Kerr in his native Australia.

He did not offer any details about their meeting, but it should be encouraging for Bogut that his new coach is seeking him out. He is still recovering from fractured ribs that kept him out of the 2014 postseason and has not committed to playing for Australia in the FIBA world cup. Despite some media criticism, the Warriors were actually better on offense and defense when Bogut was healthy.

Andrew Bogut (fractured rib) will soon have tests to determine if his rib has fully healed, and he hasn't committed to playing for Australia in the FIBA world cup.

Bogut was recently criticized by ESPN commentator Stephen A. Smith, who called him "Andrew Bogus" and claimed that people call Bogut the 'Tin Man' behind his back because he has no heart. The Warriors would surely defend their starting center, as their offensive and defensive efficiency both improved while Bogut was on the court last season.

Andrew Bogut (ribs) said he's still a couple weeks away from getting back on the court.

He added he's had some bad luck with injuries and he said he'd like to have a 3-4 year stretch without injury. Bogut only missed 15 games due to injury before missing all of the playoffs, which is a big improvement from the 52.0 games missed per season in 2011-12 and 2012-13.

Andrew Bogut (ribs) may not travel with the Warriors to Los Angeles for Game 5 on Monday.

He was not court side for Game 1 or 2 in Los Angeles and remains out indefinitely. Bogut's absence has forced Mark Jackson to play a smaller lineup, starting Draymond Green in place of Jermaine O'Neal. The move worked in Game 4, as the Warriors won by over 20 points. Bogut remains out indefinitely and he's not expected to return during the playoffs.

Andrew Bogut (broken rib) remains out indefinitely.

The Warriors are in desperate need of Bogut's size and rebounding presence. Blake Griffin and DeAndre Jordan have combined to 39.7 points and 20.7 rebounds while shooting 62.5 percent from the field. But Bogut's injury is not one he can fight through and he didn't even watch Game 3 from the bench. He's not the Warriors' savior here.
Apr 25 - 9:32 AM

Andrew Bogut is likely out for the playoffs due to a broken rib on his right side.

The broken rib is close to his lung and he could risk puncturing his right lung by playing. And since it generally takes a broken rib about six weeks to heal, Bogut sounds extremely doubtful to play again this season. It's a tough blow for the Dubs, and means Jermaine O'Neal and Marreese Speights are going to see a lot of minutes in the postseason.
Apr 15 - 10:16 AM

Andrew Bogut (ribs) will not play in the final two regular season games for the Warriors due to a fractured rib.

His status for the playoffs has yet to be determined and he's almost certainly going to miss time there, as well. Bogut had X-rays on his ribs on Sunday and has no timetable to return. Jermaine O'Neal will likely start for the Warriors in the final two games while Marreese Speights could help off the bench. Plus, coach Mark Jackson figures to go with a Draymond Green-David Lee frontcourt combo here and there. If Bogut doesn't make it back for the playoffs, they could be in trouble with how poorly they've protected the paint in the past couple months.
Apr 14 - 8:39 PM

Andrew Bogut (ribs) had X-rays late on Sunday but the Warriors haven't yet announced the results.

Bogut left in overtime after getting hit squarely in the ribs and his loss would be a huge blow to Golden State's playoff ambitions, so we can only hope for good news once the test results are disclosed. Jermaine O'Neal and Marreese Speights will step into bigger roles if Bogut is forced to miss any time, with Draymond Green also picking up extra minutes in the frontcourt.
Apr 14 - 10:58 AM

Andrew Bogut injured his ribs late in Sunday's game and will not return.

The Warriors are still fighting for meaningful playoff positioning, and Bogut left while the game was within one point in overtime, so there's some cause for concern. For now we're considering him questionable to return on Monday -- with Jermaine O'Neal a candidate to be rested, Marreese Speights may be in for a busy evening.
Apr 13 - 11:40 PM

Andrew Bogut had one of his worst games of the season against the Nuggets on Thursday with four points, eight boards, one assist and two blocks.

When your team allows 63 boards some of the blame has to go on Bogut. He didn't look to be 100 percent tonight and missed some chances on contested rebounds. His pelvic bruise from last week might not be a factor and coach Mark Jackson said he wants to play his guys down the stretch, so Bogut might not be rested.
Apr 11 - 2:01 AM

Andrew Bogut (bruised pelvis) returned to action on Sunday with six points and 11 rebounds in 23 minutes, as the Warriors crushed the Jazz by 28 points.

Bogut's minutes were primarily limited by the lopsided score, and his injury wasn't something that can be easily aggravated. Fantasy owners scrounging around for rebounds and blocks shouldn't hesitate to deploy him in Golden State's five remaining games.
Apr 6 - 11:37 PM

Andrew Bogut (pelvic bruise) will return to action vs. the Jazz on Sunday.

David Lee remains out with nerve inflammation, so Bogut will likely start at center alongside Draymond Green, with Jermaine O'Neal and Marreese Speights providing bench support. The Warriors may ease Bogut back into the rotation with limited minutes, but he's still a solid source of blocks and boards.
Apr 6 - 7:22 PM

Andrew Bogut (pelvic bruise) will not play in Friday's game against the Kings.

It's Bogut's fourth straight game on the sidelines. It's not a particularly serious injury, but the Warriors will play it safe as they desperately need his rebounding in the playoffs. Look for Jermaine O'Neal to start at center.
