Warriors Not Restricting Andrew Bogut, Treating Him '100 Percent Healthy'
When the NBA season starts, the Golden State Warriors plan to treat Andrew Bogut as a fully healthy center who will not be restricted.
“I think the initial thought is he is healthy, and play him as much as you want,” general manager Bob Myers said. “If something obviously were to develop, something unforeseen, you have to react to it. At this point, you treat him like he is 100 percent healthy, that is what he is saying, that is what the medical staff is saying, so, you don’t treat him any other way.
"Maybe the question is, do you want to play him 35 minutes? But that is a question for any center. It is not due to anything with his injury. We’re approaching it like he is healthy.”
Bogut missed 104 games in the past two years and dealt with ankle issues last season.
Bogut had a significant impact in the Warriors' run to the Western Conference semifinals and is entering a contract season.
