Golden State Warriors center Andrew Bogut is fully healthy

There’s no doubt that when healthy, Golden State Warriors center Andrew Bogut is among the best big men in the league. Of course, Andrew Bogut is rarely healthy and has seemingly become the poster child for the nagging injury.

It’s not very often that the native Australian begins the season on a positive note, but assuming Andrew Bogut is to get through training camp unscathed he’ll start the season fully healthy as CSN Bay Area says the Warriors big man is completely healed from last season.

Though Bogut said as late as June that he continued to experience pain and was taking medication, the Warriors now say the 29-year-old has “completely recovered” and is expected to be a full participant in training camp.

The Golden State Warriors are a very talented team though if they have a weakness, it’s their lack of size, especially in the middle. If Andrew Bogut was to go down for any extended period, that would leave Golden State in a very vulnerable position so it’s likely the Warriors will be very careful with Andrew Bogut through training camp.

Earlier this offseason the Golden State Warriors were said to have interest in signing undrafted free agent Eric Moreland to a contract in effort to give themselves depth, though he spurned both Golden State and the New York Knicks to sign with the Sacramento Kings.

There have also been whispers suggesting Emeka Okafor as a possibility, though he’d be more of a replacement for Bogut if the big man suffered one of his notorious injuries.
