Warriors: Andrew Bogut Cleared to Play In Back To Backs

Andrew Bogut is finally ready to play in back to backs, according to Marcus Thompson of the Bay Area News Group.

Before returning against the Cleveland Cavaliers on January 28, Bogut missed 39 straight games with ankle problems.

The Warriors have been very wary of his workload since he has returned, but the restrictions on how many minutes he plays are slowly starting to fade.

Bogut’s minutes will still be monitored on back to backs, but he will start to play more in non back-to-back games, according to Thompson.

Since returning, Bogut is averaging nine points and 7.8 rebounds 25.4 minutes per game. The Warriors hope to get him more comfortable in the offense as he starts to be a consistent figure in Golden State’s lineup.
