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.

Andrew Bogut was a huge part of Thursday's Game 5 win over the Thunder, scoring a postseason career-high 15 points with 14 rebounds, two assists, two steals, two blocks and two turnovers in 30 minutes.

His increased minutes tonight may have been the difference. Bogut played just 23 minutes combined in the last two games, but the Warriors went much bigger in this game. Bogut's presence around the rim on defense was a big part of limiting easy buckets for OKC while his passing and four offensive boards went a long way for the Dubs' offense. The Aussie is probably going to be a bit sore after this one, but expect him to get some extended run again on Saturday. Coach Steve Kerr gets a lot of credit for this rotation change.

Warriors head coach Steve Kerr said Andrew Bogut needs to avoid getting into foul trouble.

Bogut is only averaging 14 minutes per game through the first four games of the Western Conference Finals, but Kerr said the limited minutes aren't due to health issues or matchups. "He's fouling," Kerr said. "He's got 13 fouls in 56 minutes. He's almost fouling out of every game in 10-15 minutes. He's got to be smarter with his fouls. We need him out there — he was plus-7 [Tuesday] night in 11 minutes." Kerr said the Warriors need Bogut on the floor in Game 5 on Thursday, but he's almost impossible to play in DFS as he's put up just 12 points and 17 rebounds in the first four games of the series.

Coach Steve Kerr said the Warriors "need' Andrew Bogut out there.

"When he’s out there, we rebound better and we’ve got a good passer out of the post," Kerr said. "We want to play Bogut more, but he’s got to stay on the floor." He was actually the only player in the positive for plus-minus on Tuesday as the Warriors were destroyed on their small-ball plan. Still, it's tough to count on Bogut for more than 16 minutes in Game 5.

Andrew Bogut played only 12 minutes during Game 3, scoring two points with five rebounds and two assists.

The Thunder went small early and often, and the Warriors' true big men (Bogut, Festus Ezeli, Anderson Varejao and Marreese Speights) struggled to control the paint. Golden State has given up the third-most second-chance points during the playoffs (13.9 per game), and OKC finished tonight's home win with a whopping 21 second-chance points. Bogut's strained right thigh might still be bothering him, and either way it's hard to rely on him for DFS purposes.

Andrew Bogut finished Wednesday's victory with four points, six rebounds and one assist in 16 minutes.

Bogut is dealing with a strained right adductor and didn't look like himself tonight, fumbling away easy scoring chances in the paint. The Warriors have solid backup options in Festus Ezeli and Anderson Varejao, with Draymond Green more than capable of playing center in small lineups for stretches, and Steve Kerr availed himself of every option on Wednesday. Bogut gets a few extra days to rest and he should be ready to go for Game 3 on Sunday.

Andrew Bogut downplayed his adductor injury on Tuesday, saying it's a "little sore" but he'll be "all right."

Bogut isn't going to make any excuses, but he didn't look quite right during Game 1, so it's possible the injury is affecting him a bit more than he's letting on. He was scoreless through 17 minutes of action during the Warriors' Game 1 loss, and only managed to add three rebounds, three assists, one steal and two blocks to his stat line, so it'll be interesting to see where his minutes are at for Game 2. He's not a great DFS option.

Andrew Bogut did not score in 17 minutes against the Thunder on Monday, adding three rebounds, three assists, one steal and two blocks.

He was gimpy out there and might not be over his right adductor injury. Bogut may have banged knees with Kevin Durant in the second half, but he didn't quite look 100 percent throughout the game. Coach Steve Kerr took Bogut out of the rotation at times against the Cavs in The Finals and he might do it again -- that would be bold given how well OKC rebounds the ball. It's tough to trust Bogut in DFS.

Andrew Bogut (adductor) is in the starting lineup against the Thunder for Game 1 on Monday.

He'll join the usual starters of Stephen Curry, Klay Thompson, Harrison Barnes and Draymond Green. Bogut is probably only looking at minutes in the upper teens to get him back on track. It'll be very interesting to see how the Warriors go against the bigger OKC lineups.
May 16 - 8:25 PM

Coach Steve Kerr thinks Andrew Bogut (adductor) will play in Game 1 against the Thunder on Monday.

He is still a game-time decision, but all signs are pointing to the former top pick being out there. The Thunder have been awesome on the glass these days, so Bogut will be an important piece to combating that. Although, they should be playing Draymond Green at center a ton. There shouldn't be much time available for Festus Ezeli and Anderson Varejao tonight.
May 16 - 7:22 PM

Andrew Bogut (adductor) is shaping up to be a game-time decision for Monday's Game 1 vs. the Thunder.

Bogut went through drill work on Sunday without sustaining any setbacks. "We got up and down the floor a little bit with some drill work and he did everything," Steve Kerr said. "I would just say he’s questionable for [Monday]. He’s got to go through his warmup before the game and we’ll see." If Bogut can't give it a go, Festus Ezeli would be expected to draw the start in his place.
May 16 - 9:34 AM

Andrew Bogut (adductor) participated during Sunday's practice, and he is officially being listed as questionable for Game 1 against the Thunder on Monday.

Bogut did not scrimmage but he did go through some drills, and his participation in Sunday's practice is a good sign regarding his availability for Monday's Game 1 of the Western Conference Finals against OKC. With no shootaround on Monday, Bogut is likely going to be a game-time call for Game 1, and if he's not able to give it a go it'll be Marreese Speights and Anderson Varejao picking up some extended minutes. Stay tuned.
May 15 - 3:11 PM

Andrew Bogut (adductor) did not practice on Saturday.

He is not on the injury report and did some work on the bike today. Coach Steve Kerr is hoping to see him practice on Sunday after taking it easy on him. The Warriors won't shootaround on Monday, so Sunday's practice will be important. If he can't go, Festus Ezeli will get the start.
May 14 - 4:58 PM

Andrew Bogut (adductor) is not listed on the injury report for Game 1 on Monday.

He'll be good to go. Bogut actually didn't have much success against the Thunder during the regular season, averaging 4.3 points, 4.0 boards, 1.3 blocks and 0.3 steals in 21.2 minutes. On top of that, the Warriors actually had a plus-29.4 net rating in their 86 minutes with Bogut on the bench during the regular season -- it was minus-16.3 with him, too. There might be a lot of the death lineup in this series.
