Bogut encouraged by progress after ankle surgery

Associated Press  |  Last updated August 19, 2012
Golden State Warriors center Andrew Bogut fully expects to be in the lineup for the season opener Oct. 31 at Phoenix after undergoing surgery this spring on his troublesome ankle. How much he plays during the exhibition schedule, he's still not sure. Bogut believes he will be nearly full strength by the start of training camp Oct. 3, but might still be limited during the preseason as a precaution. Last week, he began light jogging on a treadmill as part of his recovery - and plans to do more this week at a higher intensity. The 7-foot Bogut underwent surgery on his fractured ankle April 27 to clean out loose particles and bone spurs. The 2005 No. 1 overall draft pick out of Utah, he is yet to play for the Warriors since being acquired in a trade from Milwaukee on March 13 that sent Monta Ellis to the Bucks. He also was sad to miss the London Olympics - which would have been his third Summer Games - with Australia.
