Golden State Warriors center Andrew Bogut has missed a lowkey two weeks of action since suffering a mysterious bone bruise in his left shoulder, and what was originally thought as the team keeping him out for precautionary reasons has become a cause for concern.
Bogut has missed four consecutive games, and is still considered day-to-day despite getting an ample amount of rest from the All-Star break. No one really knows when or how it happened, including coach Mark Jackson, but the injury is very real and the team will have to continue monitoring how the center progresses from his painful injury.
To help speed up the recovery process, Bogut was given a cortisone shot on the shoulder. Unfortunately, it may have made things worse for him:
7-8% of ppl have a bad reaction to cortisone, good to know im one of those lucky few! #horrible

The Warriors play their next game on Wednesday against the Sacramento Kings and can only hope for the return of their defensive anchor by then.
