Found November 27, 2012 on NBA Injury News:
Reports yesterday were optimistic in regards to Andrew Bogut's status.  The Golden State Warriors' newest addition has hardly played since his trade from Milwaukee.  However, it seemed likely that Bogut could be back on the court as early as Saturday, and he was expected to practice yesterday.  That didn't happen.Rusty Simmons of the San Francisco Chronicle pointed out a few Warriors players who missed practice yesterday due to their injuries.  Bogut was one of them. Andrew Bogut (ankle), Richard Jefferson (calf) and Carl Landry (oral surgery) missed the Warriors' practice Monday, according to the team.— Rusty Simmons (@Rusty_SFChron) November 26, 2012Andrew Bogut had surgery on his ankle in April, tried to come back, but aggravated the ankle.  He has missed the team's last nine game due to the injury, but he was expected to be back Saturday.  That timetable is in doubt now that he was unable to practice Monday. The Warriors thought they were getting a player who could help lead them out of the cellar when they traded fro Bogut.  And they may have.  However, the team won't know what they have until Bogut is on the court and healthy.  In the four games he's played this season, Bogut has averaged just six points per game.  In his career, though, he has averaged 12.6 points per game and 9.3 rebounds per game. There is still a chance that Bogut can return Saturday, but he has to prove that he is ready.  The team will have a few more practices this week which will give Bogut an opportunity to test the ankle, but it seems unlikely that he would play Saturday.Follow @hoopsinjurynews!function(d,s,id){var js,fjs=d.getElementsByTagName(s)[0];if(!d.getElementById(id)){js=d.createElement(s);js.id=id;js.src="http://www.nbainjurynews.com//platform.twitter.com/widgets.js";fjs.parentNode.insertBefore(js,fjs);}}(document,"script","twitter-wjs"); var _gaq = _gaq || []; _gaq.push(['_setAccount', 'UA-34100676-1']); _gaq.push(['_trackPageview']); (function() { var ga = document.createElement('script'); ga.type = 'text/javascript'; ga.async = true; ga.src = ('https:' == document.location.protocol ?
