The Warriors announced Saturday center Andrew Bogut is out three months after successful arthroscopic surgery on his left ankle Friday.
Dr. Richard Ferkel cleaned out loose particles and bone spurs in the ankle. Bogut, who fractured the ankle on January 25 while with the Milwaukee Bucks, is expected to be ready in time for training camp in October. He will not play for his beloved Austrailia during the Summer Games in London.
Bogut, acquired by the Warriors on March 13, is the third Warriors starter to have surgery this week. All three are expected to be ready for camp. Point guard Stephen Curry had his frequently sprained right ankle cleaned out on Wednesday, also by Dr. Ferkel. Forward David Lee had successful surgery Thursday, performed by Dr. William Meyers in Philadelphia, to repair torn abdominal muscles and abductors.
