Good news for the Warriors and their fans: Andrew Bogut is back and healthy.

Bogut said today that his ankle is “110 percent stronger” then in October and November, when he played four games before calling it quits.

Since his return, Bogut has been averaging 11 points and seven rebounds in three games as the Warriors’ starting center.

He is still limited to 25 minutes and no back-to-backs.

“The strength is the big thing that I notice,” he said. “It’s much stronger. I can jump. My second-effort jumps can kind of respond well. The first time, it just didn’t respond to that. I don’t really look into it that way, where it will send me back (to aggravating the injury). I think I’ve passed it, but I’ve still got to be smart and professional when it comes to doing my rehab.”
