Bogut on the shelf for 7-10 days (ankle)

When you are held together with duct tape and screws, your days of playing 82-game seasons are over.

The Golden State Warriors knew this when they acquired Andrew Bogut from the Milwaukee Bucks last season, and now they are living with the consequences.

Bogut will not play for the next 7-10 days, the Warriors announced Thursday.

From their news release: “Warriors center Andrew Bogut will not play in any of the team’s games over the next 7-10 days in an effort to continue to strengthen his surgically repaired left ankle. Bogut has appeared in four of the team’s five games this season, averaging 6.0 points, 3.8 rebounds, 2.0 assists and 1.00 block in 18.3 minutes per contest.

Ironically, I discussed this very possibility with Matt Steinmetz and old NY radio buddy Brandon Tierney yesterday on 95.7 The Game in the Bay Area. Click the player below to listen.
