Andrew Bogut doesn’t sounds like he’ll be playing basketball anytime soon. The center for the Golden State Warriors told the world today that he had to undergo microfracture surgery on his ankle. Previously, the Warriors were saying that his return could happen any day now.
Why did Bogut decide to go public?
Said Bogut: “We don’t want to fool anybody, anymore. We don’t want to keep creating a little bit of excitement of, ‘Hey, Andrew might be playing Saturday. It might be Monday. He’s back.’”
However, Bogut isn’t ready to shut the door on this season completely.
“We’ve got five months left, six if we make the playoffs,” said Bogut. “I don’t think it’s going to be another six months.”
Bogut began the season on the active roster but shut it down after a very slow start.
