Found October 21, 2013 on NBA Injury News:
Golden State Warrior’s center Andrew Bogut practiced with the team on Sunday, which is good news for both the team and the fans after he was injured in Friday’s exhibition against the Los Angeles Lakers. During the game, Bogut had wanted to continue playing, but with having him in the regular season a priority, coach Mark Jackson took him out. Luckily for the team, the injury does not appear to be bad. The back spasms that occurred was merely a setback as reported by Marcus Thompson of Mercury News. “Very good news,” Jackson said. “He waved me off and wanted to stay in the game. But it was a smart thing to do, especially facing the long trip. I’m glad that he’s recovered. He looks like himself.” Bogut is expected to play on Wednesday when the team takes on the Sacremento Kings. In the last two seasons combined, Bogut has played in just 44 games due to injuries. In the 32 games that he played, Bogut did not score as much on offense, averaging just 5.8 points per game in 24 minutes; but he was just as efficient as before, converting on 45.1% of his shots. When healthy, Bogut has established himself as one of the premier centers in the league. Teammate Harrison Barnes is expected to sit out the rest of preseason.
