More bad news concerning Golden State Warriors’ center Andrew Bogut – he will apparently miss more than the allotted 7-10 day timetable that was set last week due to his recurring ankle injuries.
Head coach Mark Jackson told the media today that Bogut will not be on the team’s next road trip, which begins in Minnesota on Friday and ends in Dallas on November 19th.
“He’s going to continue to rehab and when he’s ready to go, he’s ready to go,” Jackson said. “I don’t even think it makes sense to put a number on it. At the end of the day, when he’s ready, he’s ready. We’re not going to force a timetable. We’re going to use wisdom on it.”
According to the original plan to sit Bogut for 7-10 days, he would have been able to play on Friday against the Timberwolves. Instead, the first possible game where he could return would be at home against the Brooklyn Nets on November 21st.
Bogut has played in just four games this season, and is averaging six points and 3.8 rebounds in 18.3 minutes per game.
He was acquired last season in the trade that sent Monta Ellis to the Milwaukee Bucks, a trade that has not favored the Warriors thus far.
