From what I can gather about Andrew Bogut and his back issue, he will miss the Warriors' entire trip because of
precaution rather than pure inability to play. The issue is apparently a bulging disc, but the greater concern is having him on the road for five games, subjecting his jacked-up spine to plane seats, an array of hotel beds and the other challenges of being on the road. Knowing they finish the season with 16 of 22 games at home has the Warriors confident they can get him fit and dialed in with the rest of the team before the postseason starts, all in a back-friendly environment. It's fairly well accepted that without Bogut -- the real Bogut, not the one that can get under the rim but not finish shots there -- the Warriors have little chance of advancing to the second round and that's apparently owner Joe Lacob's desire.
