Bogut Planning to Play Tonight at Toronto


Warriors’ center Andrew Bogut might be in the lineup tonight against the Toronto Raptors.

Sources tell the Bay Area News Group’s Marcus Thompson that Bogut is planning to  give it a go, depending on how he does in pre-game warmups.

Bogut has played in just four games this season before shutting himself down with an ankle injury. He has given no timetable for his return, so this announcement is certainly a surprise.

The Australian center was acquired in a trade that sent Monta Ellis to the Bucks, which was highly unpopular amongst Warriors fans. However, now that the team is nine games over .500 and fifth in the Western Conference, one can only imagine how much better they can get with a healthy Bogut in the lineup.

Over the course of his eight-year NBA career, Bogut is averaging 12.6 points and 9.3 rebounds per game.
