Golden State Warriors center and former No. 1 overall pick Andrew Bogut has had his fair share of injuries in his career. Last season he was bothered by an ankle injury which limited him to just 32 regular season games, but according to Contra Costa Times, Warriors GM Bob Myers says that Bogut is recovering well in the offseason:
Myers said center Andrew Bogut’s ankle is recovering fine. The Warriors get regular updates and will send a trainer to Australia to examine Bogut.
Despite being hobbled, Bogut did make a difference and helped the Warriors make a little playoff run this season. He averaged 7.2 points and 10.9 rebounds in 12 postseason games. Despite having lost a lot of his mobility, Bogut still made some big plays for the Dubs.
Bogut will be entering the last year of his contract next season and will earn $14.2 million. It’s clear at this point that he will never be the player he once had potential to be, but he can still make a difference as long as he stays healthy.
