Andrew Bogut C GS 3 Hrs

Bogut (illness) played 18 minutes in Wednesday night's win over the Kings. He scored four points with five rebounds and four blocked shots in the win.

Bogut was not nearly the factor head coach Steve Kerr envisioned when he implemented a new offense that would give the center more touches, but that's directly tied to the illness. With Bogut laboring and David Lee (hamstring) out, Kerr often employed a small-ball lineup but also resurrected Marreese Speights (16 points, 18 minutes).

Bogut is questionable for Wednesday's opener due to illness, Rusty Simmons of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

Bogut dealt with an illness during the Warriors' final few preseason games, but it appears that unrelated symptoms are now affecting him. If he's forced to miss the contest against the Kings, look for Ognjen Kuzmic to draw the start, with both Festus Ezeli and Marreese Speights representing candidates to see additional run. The Warriors are already short-handed with their big men, as starting power forward David Lee (hamstring) was ruled out Wednesday afternoon.

Bogut, who missed the previous preseason game due to illness, started and played 32 minutes in Friday night's preseason finale against the Nuggets. He had a robust 12 points (6-of-6 FG), eight rebounds and eight assists, a blocked shot and a steal in a win.

Friday's game appeared to be a dress rehearsal for the regular season as head coach Steve Kerr limited the rotation and the starters played a normal allotment of minutes. Bogut looks like he's ready to get more touches in the coach's new offense.

Bogut (illness) is expected to play in Friday night's preseason finale against the Nuggets, the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

Bogut was a late scratch Tuesday because of flu-like symptoms. This will most likely be a token appearance, a tune-up before the regular season opener next Wednesday in Sacramento.

Bogut did not play in Tuesday night's preseason game against the Clippers due to illness, the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

His absence provided an opportunity for head coach Steve Kerr to get a good look at the returning Festus Ezeli (shin). We presume Bogut will be ready to go for the preseason finale Friday against Denver, though it wouldn't be shocking if Kerr held him out in preparation for next week's regular season opener at Sacramento.

Bogut returned to the lineup Friday night after sitting the first game of a back-to-back set. He scored one point (0-of-2 FG, 1-of-4 FT) with four rebounds, seven assists, two steals and a blocked shot in a loss to the Heat.

Through four preseason games, Bogut has compiled 17 assists. Head coach Steve Kerr's plan to give the center more touches in the new offense is evident so far in the preseason. On Friday, those touches didn't translate into shot attempts, but he was able to set up David Lee (11-of-11) for a number of in-close buckets.

Bogut will stay on the floor late in games, according to head coach Steve Kerr, CSN Bay Area reports. "I'm not planning to take him out," Kerr said. "We need him on the floor. He's one of our best players. I'm going to have him out there. I'm confident that he'll make enough (free throws) that it won't matter."

This reverses a trend used by former head coach Mark Jackson, who often sat Bogut in close games late due to the center's troubles at the free-throw line. Bogut is a career 56-percent shooting from the line.
