Talent hasn’t ever been a problem for Australian born center, Andrew Bogut. Staying on the court however, that’s another problem all together.
The first overall pick in the 2005 NBA Draft will be entering his ninth season in the NBA and he’s apparently healthy for the first time in years, at least according to Golden State Warriors general manager Bob Myers.
Per Sporting News:
“I think the initial thought is he is healthy, and play him as much as you want,” general manager Bob Myers told Sporting News. “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 hasn’t played in 70 games since the 2007 season, so despite being deemed ‘healthy’, it might be a stretch for him to surpass 70 games considering his injury history.
