After acquiring Andrew Bogut from Milwaukee last season in exchange for Monta Ellis, the Warriors have been hoping that he can be the centerpiece big man they have been lacking. With a lot of offensive minded players on the team, Steph Curry, Klay Thompson, and David Lee, the team badly needs a post player who can control the paint on both ends of the floor against the best bigs in the league. He is capable of doing so, but he needs to be healthy. And he probably needs to play more than 20 minutes per game.
Andrew Bogut has had plenty of injury issues, with his surgically repaired ankle being the latest problem. He’s on the floor, but his doctors and the Warriors are being very cautious with the former number one overall pick.
A “20 Minute Rule” is in effect to begin the season, in which Andrew Bogut will not be able to play more than 20 minutes per game. And he’s not thrilled about it.
