Andrew Bogut looks to make improvements in next game

Jennifer Stewart-US PRESSWIRE

Warriors center Andrew Bogut promises to stay positive, despite his slow start and an ankle injury.

Despite bouncing back from a tough loss to the Memphis Grizzlies with a big win over the Los Angeles Clippers, the Golden State Warriors continue to be concerned about the early struggles of the hobbled Andrew Bogut. Bogut himself wants to perform better when he returns to the court.

Bogut did not play in the Warriors' Saturday night victory, but after grabbing just four points and three rebounds in 18 minutes against the Grizzlies, he was insistent that his ankle injury was no excuse for his poor play.

"I'm out there, I'm playing, so there's no excuse with my injury and with minutes," Bogut said after Friday night's loss. "But it is frustrating. I've got to try to find a way to stay positive and make sure I'm more productive than I was tonight."

A USA Today report says Bogut will be restricted to 20 minutes per game until December at the earliest as he continues to recover from his injury.

In his season debut, and his debut as a Warrior, Bogut scored eight points and collected six rebounds in Golden State's season-opening victory over the Phoenix Suns.
