Will he or won't he?
That's the question for Warriors center Andrew Bogut. Will he or won't he play in the team's season-opener on Oct. 31, against the Suns in Phoenix. And if he doesn't play on that night … then when?
Well, either Bogut doesn't know or he isn't telling, and by the sound of things it seems to be the former.
A week ago, Warriors general manager Bob Myers announced that Bogut's fractured left ankle was progressing well, but that the team was not going to put a timetable on his return.
At the start of training camp, Bogut said his goal was to play in a preseason game or two and be ready for the opener. But Bogut missed all eight preseason games.
Bogut has been cleared to participate in all basketball-related activities by the surgeon, Dr. Richard Ferkel, who performed the surgery on the ankle after Bogut injured in January. Still, though, Bogut has not yet felt comfortable enough to play five-on-five full-court and he is still playing without any contact. Here's a transcript of an interview with Bogut done on Saturday afternoon after Golden State's practice.
