Andrew Bogut injury: Warriors center says he won't play Saturday

Kelley L Cox-US PRESSWIRE

The injury-plagued center's return from an ankle injury has been delayed by swelling.

Golden State Warriors center Andrew Bogut is still experiencing swelling in his surgically-repaired left ankle and told Rusty Simmons of The San Francisco Chronicle that there is no way that he will play on Saturday.

The 27-year-old Australian had been targeting the Warriors' home game on Dec. 1 against the Pacers as the first time he'd take the floor since Nov. 7. He played in the first four games of the season for the Warriors -- averaging six points and 3.8 rebounds -- but the team decided that he needed more time to recover and shelved him.

Bogut originally injured the ankle last January as a member of the Milwaukee Bucks, and underwent surgery in April which held him out of the Warriors' entire preseason slate. The injury-plagued center only played in 12 games in 2011 and has not played in all 82 regular season games more than once in his seven year NBA career
