Andrew Bogut's left knee injury will not require surgery, according to Warriors GM Bob Myers.
This was the expectation when the Warriors updated Bogut's status a week ago, but it's nice to have it confirmed by the team's GM. Bogut suffered bone bruises to his tibia and femur, and he's expected to miss 6-8 weeks, making it very likely that he'll be sidelined when Australia competes in the Rio Olympics. Jun 22 - 8:34 PM

Andrew Bogut (knee) was seen without crutches or a brace on Thursday.

Bogut will still miss the rest of the NBA Finals, and he's already acknowledged that it's "very unlikely" he'll suit up for Australia at the 2016 Olympic Games, but it's good news to see that he's able to walk unassisted. With Bogut no longer available, Draymond Green will see the biggest fantasy boost, while Warriors will also mix in a combination of Festus Ezeli, Marreese Speights, and Anderson Varejao.

An MRI revealed bone bruises to Andrew Bogut's proximal tibia and distal femur in his left knee, and his timetable to return has been set at 6-8 weeks.

That obviously rules Bogut out for the remainder of the Finals, and it will also likely force him to opt out of the 2016 Olympics Games, although he'll have plenty of time to recover for the 2016-17 season. With Bogut no longer a part of the equation for Golden State, the Dubs will likely go with a healthy heaping of small ball lineups with Draymond Green getting all the run he can handle. Festus Ezeli, Marreese Speights and Anderson Varejao will also have the opportunity for some extended minutes.

Andrew Bogut reportedly will not require surgery to repair his injured left knee, although he's unlikely to play in the remaining two games of the NBA Finals.

Bogut's recovery timetable has reportedly been set at 6-8 weeks, so it's safe to say that he will not be available to return during the Finals. The Dubs still have not revealed Bogut's MRI results, but given that surgery is not expected to be required, it sounds like he's avoided a more serious injury. The Warriors will likely roll out a ton of small ball lineups sans Bogut, and Festus Ezeli will also have the opportunity for some extended minutes.

According to sources of ESPN, the Warriors are still reviewing Andrew Bogut's (knee) medical data.

Marc Stein of ESPN also added that we can expect an official update from the team on Wednesday. We already know that Bogut traveled with the Warriors to Cleveland, but the team hasn't provided an update on his playing status just yet. Expect to see a lot of small ball with Draymond Green at the five in Game 6 if Bogut is unable to play.

Warriors' GM Bob Myers said that Andrew Bogut (knee) will make the trip to Cleveland for Game 6.

Myers added that the team is still awaiting the results of Bogut's MRI, but with how much pain Bogut was in after hyperextending his knee during Game 5, it would be surprising to see him able to suit up on Thursday. If Bogut is indeed unavailable for Game 6, it'll likely be Festus Ezeli picking up the majority of his minutes, with guys like Anderson Varejao, Marreese Speights and James Michael McAdoo all doing their part to help fill the void. Draymond Green will get all the run he can handle.

The Warriors are moving the MRI on Andrew Bogut (left knee sprain) to Tuesday.

It was originally scheduled for Monday night, but the team will push it back. It could be due to so much swelling or it could be another factor. Bogut's knee was hyperextended and he was writhing in pain, so it could be a season-ending injury with ligament damage. The Warriors missed him on defense, but they also missed him on their high screens on offense. If he's out, Festus Ezeli would likely step up the most while getting Draymond Green back is huge.

Andrew Bogut (left knee sprain) will not return on Monday.

He has an MRI scheduled for Monday night to check on the severity of his knee. The injury looked scary in the third quarter with Bogut unable to put weight on his left leg. There's a very strong possibility Bogut is out for the season. The Warriors are missing him badly to protect the paint. There will be more minutes for Festus Ezeli, James Michael McAdoo and Anderson Varejao. Harrison Barnes has played some center, as well.

Andrew Bogut injured his left leg in the third quarter on Monday.

He went up for a block and his left leg hyperextended. Bogut was on the ground in pain for three possessions and remained down for a couple minutes after the whistle. He needed help to the locker room and didn't put weight on his left leg. The Warriors are already thin with Draymond Green out, so we might see a ton of Festus Ezeli and James Michael McAdoo. We should also see more Harrison Barnes at the five.
Jun 13 - 10:46 PM

Andrew Bogut started Wednesday's game but logged only 12 minutes, finishing 2-of-6 from the field with four points, two rebounds and one blocked shot.

The Cavs started a small lineup with LeBron James at PF and the Warriors quickly followed suit -- Bogut, Festus Ezeli and Marreese Speights played a combined 30 minutes tonight. Bogut is now averaging 14.0 minutes in three Finals games and is unlikely to see his role expand if the Cavs go small again in Game 4.
Jun 9 - 12:10 AM

Andrew Bogut blocked five shots in only 15 minutes of action vs. the Cavs on Sunday, adding six rebounds (three offensive), two steals and two points in the Warriors' 110-77 victory.

Bogut blocked four shots in the first quarter alone, the most in an NBA Finals quarter since Ben Wallace in 2005, contributing to his team's Game 2 rout. Foul trouble reared its ugly head again for Bogut, as he picked up four fouls in limited action, but as usual the Warriors got solid production from Festus Ezeli (six points, two boards in 11 minutes) and a variety of small lineups.
Jun 5 - 11:11 PM

The Warriors will start Stephen Curry, Klay Thompson, Harrison Barnes, Draymond Green and Andrew Bogut in Game 1 of The Finals on Thursday.

This is a surprising move from coach Steve Kerr. Andre Iguodala's defense was superb against LeBron James last year, and he's coming off a terrific round against Kevin Durant. This could also mean Draymond Green defends LeBron in the early going. We should still see plenty of Iguodala tonight.
Jun 2 - 8:46 PM

Andrew Bogut scored two points with three rebounds and no turnovers in 15 minutes against the Thunder on Monday.

He was terrible in this game and really didn't do much except for Game 5. Bogut fell out of the rotation in The Finals last year, so his playing time should drop again on Thursday.
May 31 - 12:17 AM

Andrew Bogut scored five points with five rebounds, four assists and two blocks in 27 minutes against the Thunder on Saturday.

He looked really, really tired and made some mistakes late in the game. The Warriors were able to go small more often and have success, so that will be something to watch for Game 7. Expect to see Bogut getting minutes in the upper 20s again on Monday.
May 29 - 12:24 AM

Warriors coach Steve Kerr heaped praise on Andrew Bogut for his efforts in Game 5.

"I thought [Bogut] was phenomenal," Kerr said. "He rebounded, he scored, he was aggressive. We went into him on the post to try to get him as a passer with our cutters around him, and he was tremendous – 14 boards. Obviously, rebounding has been an issue. It's an issue for everybody against Oklahoma City. So when he can play that way and rebound the ball like that, it just gives us a much better chance to win the game." After scoring 15 points with 14 rebounds, two assists, two steals and two blocks in 30 minutes, Bogut will be a nice option in DFS for Game 6.
