Report: Golden State Warriors C Andrew Bogut Out Up To A Week, Hilton Armstrong Re-Signed


According to a report, Andrew Bogut could miss up to a week with a bruised pelvis and the Golden State Warriors have responded by re-signing center Hilton Armstrong, according to their official website.

This will be Armstrong’s third tour with Golden State this season. In eight games with the Warriors, Armstrong has six points and 18 rebounds in 35 minutes.

He has spent most of the season at Santa Cruz in the NBA Development League, averaging 11.8 points, 7.2 rebounds, 1.9 assists and 1.8 blocks in 31 games and 26.4 minutes per game. He’s shooting 56.3 percent with the D-League Warriors.

Bogut was hurt early in the Warriors dramatic win Friday night over Memphis. Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo Sports reported the prognosis via Twitter:

 

 

He’s been relatively healthy this season, for the first time in several years, playing in 63 of Golden State’s first 72 games. That’s the most games Bogut has played since appearing in 65 with the Bucks in 2010-11.

Bogut is averaging 7.6 points, 10.a rebounds and 1.9 blocks in 26.4 minutes a game and shooting 62.7 percent.

But where Bogut has his greatest impact is on the team’s defensive effort. The Warriors have a net rating (points per 100 possessions) of plus-6.6 points when Bogut is on the floor.

Armstrong was the 12th overall pick of the New Orleans/Oklahoma City Hornets in 2006 out of Connecticut and has also played for the Kings, Rockets, Wizards and Hawks in a well-traveled six years in the NBA. He has also played in France, Greece and China.

Bogut was the top overall pick by Milwaukee out of the University of Utah in 2005 and came to the Warriors along with Stephen Jackson in a March 2012 trade that sent Monta Ellis, Ekpe Udoh and Kwame Brown to the Bucks.
