Andrew Bogut could be playing tonight against Toronto at home, but it isn’t likely.

He did participate in shootaround this morning, and head coach Mark Jackson said he will be a game time decision:

“There is a chance, but I wouldn’t get too excited,” Jackson said. “He went through shootaround this morning and we’ll see how he responds later, then make a decision.”

Bogut has missed the past six games with back spasms after returning briefly from an ankle injury.

The 7’0″ Australian has played in just 12 games this season, spending more time in a suit and tie than on the court.
