A second opinion confirmed center Andrew Bogut is suffering from a bone bruise in his left ankle, the Warriors announced on Tuesday. Dr. Richard Ferkel, the surgeon who operated on Bogut’s left ankle a year ago, confirmed the initial diagnosis of Warriors doctors, the team said. He sustained it a week ago, a team official said, and it has kept him out the last two games.
Bogut is officially listed as questionable for Wednesday’s regular-season finale at Portland. He did travel with the team to Portland but his status will be determined by his progress. Warriors coach Mark Jackson said he won’t hold out Bogut for precautionary reasons. If Bogut is ready, he said the starting center will play since the Warriors have had limited time with a full roster.
