Not even two weeks into the preseason, and of course this happens:
Andrew Bogut got the ball on the left low block, with Pau Gasol on his back. He took a couple dribbles towards the middle then spun back to his left, dropping in the left hand hook. This was at the 9:26 mark of the first quarter.
Running back down court, Bogut began to grimace and hold his lower back. Moments later, he was taken out of the game. He limped straight to the locker room. Not exactly a sight Warriors fans wanted to see.
Bogut was done for the night, knocked out of the second and final preseason game with lower back spasms.
Mark Jackson later said he’s not concerned about the injury, but it’s near impossible to hear this news and not have an “oh, here we go again” attitude about it. Great timing, too, with contract extension talks underway.

Warriors head coach Mark Jackson wanted to trim back his starters' minutes but this definitely wasn't what he had in mind: Just 2 minutes 46 seconds into the team's 115-89 victory over the Lakers on Friday in Shanghai center Andrew Bogut started experiencing spasms in his lower back and had to be pulled from the game.

After months of rehab, setbacks, and disappointments, Golden State Warriors center Andrew Bogut proved his worth to the team in the playoffs, becoming a force on the boards and showing that he could be the defensive anchor that the Warriors have been missing for decades. He was instrumental in their first round series victory over the Denver Nuggets, and was solid in the second...
Golden State Warriors’ Harrison Barnes has missed two game and most of another with a left foot injury. He will miss tonight’s game with the Lakers and there is no timetable when he will return.
As reported by Scott-Howard Cooper at NBA.com, statements from the Warriors say that Barnes will rest when the calendar allows, which could mean he doesn’t play the rest of the preseason...
From NBA.com’s Scott Howard-Cooper-Draper-Pryce comes news of developing talks between the Warriors and Andrew Bogut over a contract extension: Bogut said team officials started conversations with agent David Bauman last week, before the Warriors left Oakland for exhibition games in Beijing and Shanghai against the Lakers. Bogut expects talks to heat up once Golden State returns...
Four games into the Warriors’ seven-game preseason schedule we’ve seen a fast start by power forward David Lee and a furious finish by point guard Stephen Curry.
We’ve seen 7-foot center Andrew Bogut play heavy minutes seen shooting guard Klay Thompson as a starter and as a sixth man.
And yes we’ve seen Andre Iguodala utterly dominate specific moments of games as few others...
Klay Thompson made 5 of 6 3-pointers and scored 25 points to help the Golden State Warriors rout the Los Angeles Lakers 115-89 in a pre-season game in Shanghai on Friday night.
David Lee added 16 points and Draymond Green had 14 points and six rebounds for the Warriors, who followed up their 100-95 win over the Lakers in Beijing on Tuesday with another victory.
