Andrew Bogut injury: Warriors center could return in '1, 2, or 3 months'

Kyle Terada-US PRESSWIRE

Andrew Bogut may take much longer to return than originally expected. The center now says he may be out for as long as three months.

Golden State Warriors center Andrew Bogut may not make his return to the team for as many as three months, reports CSN Bay Area. He may be out for "one, two or three months" says Bogut.

The injury has been slow in developing, with a shifting timeline. The team had hoped the center would be ready for training camp, but that shifted to hoping he could be 100 percent by the regular season opener. Signs in the early season were not positive, and the team shut Bogut down in mid-November. He was expected to return in 1-2 weeks, but it now seems he will be out for much longer.

Bogut has played in four of the Warriors' first 14 games, averaging 18.3 minutes and 6 points per night. His injury originally stems from fracturing his left ankle in January of 2012, when he played for the Milwaukee Bucks. In April of this year he had surgery that was involved a microfracture procedure, something Bogut had not expected.
