Andrew Bogut said his surgically repaired ankle is “110 percent stronger” than when he tried in Oct/Nov, and the...
numbers support him. He is clearly trying for self-imposed patience, though: The Warriors center said he won't seek to have the time restrictions reduced in the next five games before the scheduled re-evaluation during the All-Star break, no matter how good he is feeling.
Bogut is capped at 25 minutes and no back-to-backs, which is especially relevant this week with the Warriors playing Tuesday-Wednesday (at Houston, at OKC) and again Friday-Saturday (at Memphis, at Dallas).
One point not in the item: Bogut admitting he feels like he has something to prove to Warriors fans after so much time lost to the fractured ankle and surgery. "Yes. A hundred percent.” Because he needs to erase their doubts. "That’s what I’m playing for right now," Bogut said. "I want to prove that this trade was a good trade for the Warriors as well and that I can stay healthy and hopefully help this team go to the next level.”
