Golden State Warriors center Andrew Bogut said that there's not much news regarding his troublesome ankle, and he's still far off from returning to the court. Bogut told Carl Steward that his surgically-repaired ankle isn't holding up in practices.

"It's still sore and it's just not right yet," Bogut said Tuesday. "When I try to train for extended periods, it just doesn't respond well. Until I can get through a week's worth of full practices, I'm back to where I am now."

The 7' center played in four of the first five games this season and averaged six points and 3.8 rebounds in restricted minutes. He decided to sit out after the fifth game of the season and has missed the last nine games since. His left ankle was repaired last season, and Bogut spent five months rehabbing with Golden State since being traded from the Milwaukee Bucks.

Currently doing light running and staying in shape with the help of treadmills and exercise bikes, Bogut told Steward that he's not being pressured by the Warriors to return at any specific pace.

With a 8-6 record on the year, Festus Ezeli and Andris Biedrins have been holding down the center spot for Mark Jackson's team.
