Andrew Bogut was dominant during an easy win over the Rockets on Saturday, scoring 12 points with 12 rebounds, one assist, one block and no turnovers.
He fouled out in his 20 minutes of action, but Bogut set the tone in the first quarter with 10 points in the first six minutes. He was also involved in contesting several shots and continues to be a bit of the unsung hero for the Warriors and their tremendous in-the-paint defense. May 23 - 11:45 PM

Andrew Bogut, still not 100 percent while dealing with the flu, played 31 minutes and hit 7-of-9 shots for 14 points, eight rebounds, four assists and five blocks in Thursday's win over the Rockets.

He battled Stephen Curry for tonight's game MVP honors and probably deserves the nod given the fact he needed an IV after Game 1 on Tuesday. Bogut is going to be a factor the rest of the way and makes for a nice value play in daily leagues.

Andrew Bogut (illness) needed a post-game IV after Game 1 against the Rockets on Tuesday.

Bogut said he played "horribly" in Game 1 as he dealt with the flu and required an IV after playing 16 minutes in the game. Bogut may see less playing time in the series if Dwight Howard's knee injury is serious, but he doesn't seem in danger of missing any games due to the flu and will be an important defensive piece for the Warriors if Howard is able to suit up.

Andrew Bogut was a non-factor in the Warriors' win on Tuesday, going scoreless with four rebounds and one steal in only 16 minutes.

Bogut said that Dwight Howard's game is "very similar" to Zach Randolph "but with five or 10 times the athleticism." He struggled with the assignment early, got into early foul trouble, and found himself rooted to the bench in the second half as the Warriors succeeded with small-ball lineups. Bogut may still emerge as a key to the series, especially if Dwight's knee injury isn't serious, but Golden State has to feel confident after winning without getting much from their starting center.

Andrew Bogut said he has a case of hay fever and will play in Game 1 on Tuesday.

He says he'll play "as long as there's no pollen in Oracle." The Rockets have said they will want to attack the paint and hit the boards, so Bogut is going to be a very important piece for the Warriors. He'll need to avoid foul trouble, which is easier said than done against Dwight Howard and James Harden.

Andrew Bogut (knee, ribs) needed an X-ray on his left knee and not his ribs on Monday.

He said his ribs are fine and the X-ray came back negative for his knee, too. Bogut will be ready to go for Game 5 at home as the Warriors look to get their momentum back.

Andrew Bogut had precautionary X-rays on his ribs after Game 4 on Monday and the results came back negative.

Bogut took a shot to the ribs during Game 4, but X-rays checked out fine after the game. He fractured his ribs a year ago so the Warriors likely wanted to take extra precautions, but by all indications, the big man will be ready to go for Game 5 on Wednesday.

Andrew Bogut was put on Tony Allen defensively and it was ultimately the key to the Warriors' Game 4 win, and he finished with four points, nine boards, four assists, three steals and three blocks over 30 minutes.

Playing small against the Grizzlies' size wasn't working for the Warriors and Steve Kerr made the type of adjustment that wins playoff series. Bogut (and later Draymond Green) sagged off Allen and into the paint, giving the Warriors' added muscle to combat the Grizzlies size, all while Harrison Barnes continued to be the Dubs' best defender on Zach Randolph. The effect was crippling and it has the look of a finishing move on the Grizzlies, who will need to think outside the box for their countermove.

Andrew Bogut didn't do much statistically through his 24 minutes of action on Sunday, scoring just four points on 2-of-3 shooting, to go with six rebounds, one assist and two steals.

There was a point early in the game where Bogut gingerly walked to the bench after a substitution holding his lower-back area, but he continued to play through the pain, although it did seem to affect his lateral speed. The Warriors absolutely need Bogut's size to compete with Memphis' imposing frontcourt, so we'd expect him to play in Game 2 on Tuesday, and we'll be monitoring his status closely. Expect another update on Bogut following Tuesday's shootaround.

Draymond Green took issue with Andrew Bogut's sixth-place finish in the Defensive Player of the Year voting.

While many expected Green's reaction to be about his own second-place finish, Green took to defending his teammate and called the center's sixth-place finish a "mockery" while also labeling Bogut the best defensive center in the league. While DeAndre Jordan might have something to say about that last statement, it's nice to see Green support his teammate while taking his own snub with a grain of salt.

Coach Monty Williams said he feels like the Pelicans could have fouled Andrew Bogut more.

Williams also jokingly added that he's concerned Stephen Curry will see the hack-a-Bogut play and shoot a three. The Pelicans went with a hack-a-Bogut in the first half, so there could be a lot of free throws going Bogut's way in Game 3.
Apr 22 - 5:56 PM

Andrew Bogut scored five points on 2-of-5 shooting with 14 rebounds, two assists, one steal and three blocks over 33 minutes in Monday's Gamw 2 win.

Bogut looks spry even if still looks a bit hesitant on offense. As long as he's upright, he's going to be the key to maintaining an advantage over any team with size in the playoffs.
Apr 21 - 1:31 AM

Andrew Bogut played 30 minutes against the Pelicans on Saturday with 12 points, 14 boards, five assists, two steals and two blocks.

His help defense was great at times and his presence in the paint on both ends is huge for the Warriors. Bogut only played 23.6 minutes per game in the regular season, but he'll see his minutes rise to 30 now. Subsequently, Marreese Speights could play less and was essentially out of the rotation today.
Apr 18 - 6:57 PM

Andrew Bogut played 32 minutes against the Blazers on Thursday, scoring 10 points with seven rebounds and four assists.

Sure, he wasn't too aggressive on defense and he wasn't too involved in the offense, but why is Bogut playing 32 minutes? The Warriors were burned badly last season with a Bogut injury, so the risk is obviously outweighing the reward. All that said, he looks great and is as agile as ever.
Apr 10 - 1:30 AM

Andrew Bogut blocked a career-high nine shots vs. Omer Asik and the Pelicans on Tuesday, adding eight points, eight rebounds, three assists and one steal in only 28 minutes of action.

The Warriors lost the game despite the dominant performance from Bogut, which may single-handedly lock up the blocks category for his fantasy owners. It would be surprising if Bogut isn't rested at some point during the Warriors' final four games, but for now Steve Kerr seems content to keep him active while limiting his playing time. He's averaging a steady 8.2 rebounds, 2.7 assists, 0.6 steals and 1.6 blocks despite playing only 23.6 minutes per game this season, and tonight's line emphasizes his value whenever he's active.
