Warriors sign center Hilton Armstrong to 10-day contract

The Warriors have signed Santa Cruz center Hilton Armstrong to a 10-day contract, bringing him back to the team at a time when they could be missing big men for Sunday’s game against New York.

Armstrong, 29, has played in eight games for Golden State this season and will be on his third stint with the team. He previously was signed in December before being waived later that month. In February, he signed a 10-day contract with the Warriors and returned to Santa Cruz after it expired.

Armstrong averaged 12 points and 7.4 rebounds in 32 games for Santa Cruz and had 19 points and 13 rebounds in a loss at Los Angeles on Saturday.

Starting center Andrew Bogut was scheduled to undergo an MRI exam Saturday after suffering a pelvic contusion the previous night in a win against Memphis.

Power forward David Lee is also questionable to face New York at Oracle Arena due to a strained right hamstring suffered eight days ago in a loss to San Antonio.

    The Big Eucalyptus is made of brittle wood. ‘Pelvic contusion?’..a bruise..so what? Now players sit out games because of a bruise? I’m not sensing a terrific will to play. And that means Mark Jackson might have been right when he described Bogut injuries as only known to him.

    Are you kidding me? The Knicks? At Oracle?

    Well, the jellyfish are consistent in their impetuous, tinman, underperforming, entitlement generation dysfunctionality. . .

    They’re done. . .enough!

    That would be my point. . .I’m done with the spineless jellyfish. . .

    We got Kerr, it only gets better now!

    Mark Jackson, as you probably know, is now history. He had some success, but didn’t get along with two assistant coaches, senior management, or Bogut. He didn’t even want Jerry West at his practice sessions. With all that has come out, I’m going to have a “wait and see” approach to Bogut, who showed some dominance when healthy during this past year.

    What if Phil Jax hires Mark Jax?!

    Yes, I wanted Kerr as the new HC; not I’ll try to be as positive as I can. . .
