Andrew Bogut has been dealing with a sore back while playing for the Australian National Team this summer.
"The body felt good," Bogut said after helping lead Australia to a win over New Zealand, securing them a spot in the 2016 Olympics. "I was battling a few little things but if you take enough pills and things you end up getting there. It worked out all right. I felt pretty good out there. Tomorrow morning won't be as good but we got the job done and we're going to the Olympics." It's not a great sign that Bogut, one of the more injury prone big men in the league is already dealing with some back issues, and we'll be monitoring his status heading into training camp. He only managed to suit up for 67 games last season, but his averages of 8.1 rebounds, 2.7 assists and 1.7 blocks per game do give him some appeal in deep leagues as a late-round flier.

Andrew Bogut said that you can't win a championship going solely small, but he also said you can't win a championship going solely big either.

Bogut was phenomenal for most of the 2014-15 season for Golden State, but he was benched for the entirety of Game 5 and Game 6 during the NBA Finals when the Warriors opted to play small ball. Bogut posted averages of 6.3 points, 8.1 boards, 2.7 assists and 1.7 blocks in 67 appearances during the regular season, and it's safe to expect similar numbers next season with a similar roster in town.

Steve Kerr said that Andrew Bogut "could very well play" in Game 6 on Tuesday.

"[Bogut's] ready if we need him, and we'll see how the game goes," said Kerr. Bogut played just three minutes during Game 4's blowout win, and he didn't even leave the bench during Game 5, so Bogut isn't likely to enter the game unless the score is lopsided. The Dubs have been taking the small ball term to a whole new level, playing extended stretches with Draymond Green at the five-spot, but it has worked very well for them thus far. With the Dubs going so small, Timofey Mozgov has struggled to stay on the floor.

After benching Andrew Bogut and Marreese Speights for the entirety of Game 5, Steve Kerr said that small lineups "work well" for Golden State.

"The reality is this is a small series and it works well for us," Kerr said. "We’re comfortable with this style." The small-ball style has quickened the pace while forcing Cleveland to downsize, with Timofey Mozgov playing only nine minutes on Sunday, and there's no reason to think Bogut or Speights will play in Game 6.

Andrew Bogut said that he has no complaints about being benched in favor of Andre Iguodala.

"It ended up working out perfectly," Bogut said. "We got the win." Andre Iguodala is the Warriors' best answer to defending LeBron James, but it was still surprising that Bogut saw just three minutes of action in Game 4. Bogut made the NBA's All-Defensive second team this season, but he has been thoroughly outplayed by Cleveland's frontcourt in this series. There's simply no way that the Warriors would revert back to their old lineup after the performance they just had, and it's also possible that Bogut could be a DNP-CD in Game 5.

Andrew Bogut said after Game 4's win that LeBron James "jumped into the cameraman," on the play that resulted in a head injury for James that later required stitches.

"I think he jumped into the cameraman," Bogut said when asked to give his perspective on the play. "Yeah, I think he came down and took two steps and then fell into the cameraman. I definitely, definitely didn't hit him that hard." When the reporter replied by saying, "That's how you saw it?" Bogut said, "No, that's how it was. If you look at the replay, you can see the two steps being taken and then him falling into the camera. That's what we saw on the replay, and that's what my teammates saw." James required stitches to close the wound, but he's in no danger of missing Sunday's Game 5 in Oakland.

Andrew Bogut moved to the bench in Game 4 on Thursday, playing just three minutes with one rebound, one assist, one turnover and three fouls.

He didn't take a single shot on offense and he didn't play in the second half. Based on how successful the Warriors were without Bogut tonight, he might be a DNP-CD on Sunday. David Lee really stepped up tonight in 15 minutes with nine points, five boards and three assists.

Andrew Bogut said he'll look for his shot more if the other frontcourt players are struggling.

He only has a 9.6 usage rate in the NBA Finals and the Warriors were not great with Bogut in Game 3. He had a putrid -27.6 net rating in his 17 minutes while only pulling down just one contested rebound in the loss. He needs to play better.
Jun 10 - 3:53 PM

Andrew Bogut played 28 minutes against the Cavs in a Game 1 win, scoring four points with seven rebounds, three assists, one steal and two blocks.

He was a monster in the first quarter on both ends of the court. Bogut's ball-handling and passing are one of the most underrated parts of his game, which also allows more freedom without the ball for Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson. He didn't start overtime and coach Steve Kerr opted to go with Festus Ezeli, who scored five points with five boards.

Andrew Bogut took a shot at former head coach Mark Jackson when asked about current head coach Steve Kerr.

Bogut and his former head coach have had a bit of a back-and-forth through the media and Bogut continued it with a swipe at Jackson. Whenever you get a head coach who’s not full of himself it makes a big difference," Bogut said when asked about his current head coach Steve Kerr. Jackson had previously called Bogut an overrated "rim protector", but the Warriors will need exactly that out of Bogut in the NBA Finals as the big man will look to continue his average of 9.2 boards and 1.8 blocks over his last five games,

Andrew Bogut took a parting shot at Dwight Howard on Friday, saying that the Memphis series was more physical.

"There was some physicality there (with Houston), like any playoff series, but the Memphis series was more physical," Bogut said. "This was more about ducking and weaving and getting out of the way of aired fists and elbows." Howard had some controversial moments against the Warriors, and he has already been suspended for the first game of the 2015-16 season. Bogut has been playing well in the postseason so far and he is probably relieved that Marc Gasol and Howard are in the rear-view mirror, but he will still have a tough matchup in the next round with Timofey Mozgov holding down the paint for Cleveland.
May 30 - 9:46 AM

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.

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.
May 21 - 11:56 PM

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.
May 21 - 10:33 AM

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.
