Kyle Terada-US PRESSWIRE

Andrew Bogut made his Golden State Warriors debut on Wednesday, finishing with eight points and six rebounds in just under 20 minutes of action.

Bogut was in the starting lineup and got off to a quick start, scoring six points in the first quarter on 3-of-4 shooting. He also added three rebounds in the quarter, despite playing just six minutes. He missed his only shot in the second quarter, but did pull down two rebounds and blocked a shot.

After finishing the first half with six points, five rebounds and a block in 14 minutes, Bogut had a quiet second half. He scored two points to go with one rebound in the third quarter but did not return in the fourth quarter until the final seconds.

Bogut is still recovering from an ankle injury he suffered last season. He was expected to play between 20-25 minutes on Wednesday and ended up playing 18:29. He missed the entire preseason, so Wednesday was Bogut's first live game action since Jan. 25.
