Andrew Bogut will get the night off on Thursday.
He played 21 minutes on Sunday and looks to be over his hip issue. Bogut's minutes will likely be limited to help his chances to stay healthy, but he should still have his fair share of double-doubles with some blocks. He's only a late-round target, though. Oct 15 - 3:46 PM

Andrew Bogut (hip) played 21 minutes against the Lakers on Sunday, scoring three points with seven rebounds, four assists and one steal.

He had a hip injury at practice on Thursday and appears to be fine. Bogut's assists look like they'll get an uptick this season and coach Steve Kerr has said he's been impressed with the Aussie's low-post passing. He'll be worth of a late-round target as long as you're OK with cutting him at the first sign of injury trouble.

Andrew Bogut (hip) was a full participant during Friday's practice.

He suffered a very minor injury during Thursday's preseason game vs. the Lakers, but it appears that this is going to be a non-issue moving forward. Bogut can be a great asset to have (while healthy) as a shot blocking and rebounding specialist, however his negative contributions to the free throw category, partnered with his inability to stay healthy make him a late-round flier at best.

Andrew Bogut filled up the stat sheet against the Lakers on Thursday with four points, six rebounds, four assists, one steal and four blocks in 24 minutes.

Coach Steve Kerr has discussed using Bogut in more of a passing role and the first two games have supported his claim. Bogut is certainly going to be valuable while he's in the lineup, but missing so many games in his career will cause him to slide in drafts. He also suffered a minor injury tonight and seemed to be fine.

Andrew Bogut scored 10 points on 5-of-5 shooting vs. the Clippers on Tuesday, while grabbing seven rebounds and handing out two assists.

Bogut didn't block any shots but he added a steal in just 17 minutes of action. He's expected to have a bigger role offensively after averaging 7.3 points on 5.6 shot attempts per game last season, but fantasy owners are more interested in his ability to stay healthy for more than 70 games.

Andrew Bogut (fractured rib) was a full participant in the Warriors' first training camp practice on Tuesday.

Bogut missed the Warriors' final nine playoff games due to concerns that his fractured rib might puncture a lung if he tried to play, but he's fully healed after a restful offseason. Warriors coach Steve Kerr intends to use Bogut more offensively, but he's also likely to limit his playing time to protect him from injuries. His risk and reward balances out to late-round value for fantasy owners in need of boards and blocks.

Coach Steve Kerr said the Warriors will emphasize using Andrew Bogut on the elbows as "a dribble handoff guy, backdoor pass guy."

Kerr said he also wants Bogut to be aggressive and called him one of the best passing centers in the league. Of course, the Warriors are going to want to keep his minutes in check if they want to keep him healthy for the post-season. If you want to spend a late-round pick on him, then make sure you're not going to be too attached to him when the injury bug starts biting him.

Andew Bogut (ribs) has been doing some 5-on-5 workouts in recent weeks at a Warriors facility.

He didn't participate at the FIBA World Cup, but he's been working out since June. Bogut played 27.5 minutes per game before the All-Star break last season, but his playing time dropped to 23.7 per game after that. The Warriors will likely keep him around 24 minutes per game in 2014-15 and he has a lot of injury risk, so he's only a late-round pick in standard drafts.
Sep 19 - 9:15 PM

Andrew Bogut has been taking full contact during the Warriors open gym scrimmages this month, and his fractured rib that sidelined him for the end of the 2013-14 season has fully healed.

"My body feels great," said Bogut, who returned to working out in mid-June after his fractured rib healed. "All of my injuries have been of the high-impact variety. The only thing I can do to change that is to be a p*** and avoid contact at all costs.. I’ll still take charges and go for blocked shots. Every now and then, I’ll get a knock." Bogut was impressive while on the court last season, averaging 7.3 points, 10.0 rebounds, and 1.8 blocks per game, however he is a huge injury risk as he only made it through 67 games. The last (and only) time Bogut made it through a full season was in 2006, so he's only worth a gamble in the very late rounds of your draft.
Sep 19 - 4:50 PM

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."
Jun 16 - 3:49 PM

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.
May 19 - 12:20 PM

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.
