Andrew Bogut Doesn’t Think He Will Play Again This Season

Stephen Curry isn’t the only Golden State Warrior whose season could be dunzo; brand-new teammate Andrew Bogut could also be in street clothers until next year. Per the AP: “Andrew Bogut says his new NBA team, the Golden State Warriors, will likely rest him for the rest of the season so he can recover from a broken left ankle. And the former No. 1 draft pick says he still holds out faint hopes of playing for Australia at the London Olympics. Bogut broke his ankle in a game against the Houston Rockets on Jan. 25. Scans over the next three weeks will determine whether the 27-year-old center can play this season for the Warriors, the team he was traded to this week from the Milwaukee Bucks. Bogut told Australian Associated Press that regardless of the scan results, ‘the last thing they’ll (the Warriors) want to do is rush me back to play in a couple of games. I’ve got to have scans at the eight-week point after I broke my ankle,’ Bogut said. ‘If the scan says we want you in the (moon) boot for another three or four weeks or they don’t want me resuming too quick, it will come down to missing the season.’ The broken ankle is just one of several major injuries that have plagued Bogut throughout his career. Bogut, who was the No. 1 draft pick in 2005, missed the end of the 2009-10 season when he dislocated his right elbow, sprained his right wrist and broke his right hand in a hard fall to the floor. The injury bothered him for much of last season. Bogut also missed significant time with an injured lower back in the 2008-09 season. Bogut said if he’s healthy, he might consider playing for Australia at the London Olympics in July.”
