Andrew Bogut Injury: Warriors C Expected Back For Season Opener

Golden State Warriors center Andrew Bogut is expected to be available to play when the Warriors open the NBA regular season on Halloween night in Phoenix.

So said Warriors general manager Bob Myers to the Sporting News. Bogut, a 7-footer from Australia who has seven seasons of NBA experience, mainly with the Milwaukee Bucks, is coming back from a fractured left ankle suffered last January before he was traded to the Warriors.

Bogut had surgery on the anke in April.

Bogut, 27, played in only 12 games in 2011-2012. He averaged 11.3 points and 8.3 rebounds per game for the Bucks in those games.

Bogut has career averages of 12.7 points per game, 9.3 rebounds per game and 1.6 blocks per game. The Warriors have long sought and interior defensive presence and hope Bogut can be the answer, but he first has to overcome his history of injuries.
