And suddenly neither is the status of center Andrew Bogut, who aggravated a sprained left ankle in the first quarter Thursday night and did not return in the Warriors’ 116-97 loss to Oklahoma City.
Bogut, who had microfracture surgery on the same ankle late last April, suffered the sprain in Tuesday’s playoff-clinching victory over Minnesota, according to a team spokesperson.
He aggravated it Thursday and exited the game with 2:55 left in the first quarter. He went to the locker room for the remainder of the night. It was not immediately clear whether his removal from the game was precautionary or indicative of something more serious.
