The Golden State Warriors will continue to play with a depleted front court when they host the Miami Heat Wednesday night.

Starting center Andrew Bogut and veteran reserve big man Jermaine O’Neal will miss the game.

Bogut has missed the Warriors’ last three games because of a shoulder injury. O’Neal has been bothered by a wrist injury that caused him to miss the Warriors’ 123-80 victory over the Philadelphia 76ers Monday night. The Warriors also don’t mind giving the 35-year old O’Neal extra rest heading into the All-Star break.

Fortunately for the Warriors, one big man seems relatively healthy.


Bogut is averaging 8.2 points, 10.7 rebounds, 1.9 blocks and 1.6 assists per game while shooting 63.6% from the field in 48 games this season. O’Neal has appeared in 20 games, averaging 6.5 points, 4.7 rebounds and 1.0 blocks per game.
