Warriors C Andrew Bogut Will Play Tonight at Houston, Friday at Memphis

Warriors coach Mark Jackson said center Andrew Bogut will play tonight at the Rockets.
Bogut will make his fourth appearance since returning from left ankle rehab. As part of his recovery, he will not play games on back-to-back nights. Since the Warriors visit Houston on Monday and Oklahoma City on Tuesday, Jackson had to choose which game his starting center would play.
“At the end of the day, we’re playing good teams,” Jackson said. “We want to put him in position to be able to play, to be able to recover, and and then continue to progress.”
