Warriors’ Andrew Bogut’s Season May Be Over

In the first round of the playoffs last year, the Golden State Warriors lost David Lee to a hip injury. This year, it looks like they may be heading into the playoffs without a key big man: Andrew Bogut.

Bogut suffered a fractured rib in a recent loss to Denver and the timetable for his return is unknown. It’s not unrealistic that his season could be over. That would be a shame. Look for an expanded role from Jermaine O’Neal.

Before the Warriors even start their playoff run, they were delivered a huge blow Monday, when Andrew Bogut was ruled out indefinitely with a fractured rib.

The center, who is the anchor of the league’s third-ranked defense, said he was initially injured in the first half of Thursday’s loss against Denver and went for X-rays after being sandwiched between two players in the fourth quarter of Sunday’s overtime loss to Portland.

The X-rays showed a broken rib that Bogut said was too close to his right lung – risking a potential puncture – to play through the pain.
