Andrew Bogut C GS 2 Days
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.

Bogut is back in the Bay Area and working out with teammates in preparation for the opening of training camp later this month, the San Francisco Chronicle reports.
Bogut has recovered from the fractured rib he sustained in April and kept him out of the postseason. After meeting with new head coach Steve Kerr this past summer, Bogut is anxious to put Kerr's plan into action. Kerr wants to utilize Bogut more in the flow of the offense, having the ball go through him at times. "They're expecting a little more from me, and I think we have high-IQ players who know how to play. With our shooters on the perimeter and our bigs with passing abilities, I think we can do really well with the ball movement coach expects in our offense," said Bogut.

Bogut has "completely recovered" from a rib injury and is expected to be a full participant when training camp opens Sept. 29, according to the team, CSN Bay Area reports.
As recently as June, Bogut said the ribs were still bothersome and was taking medication. He's spent most of the summer at home in Australia, but had been limited in the ability to workout, particularly in the upper body. It now appears Bogut will be ready to roll come October.

Warriors coach Steve Kerr showed Andrew Bogut how he could become more involved offensively with the implementation of a "triangle-facilitator type of role."
"[Kerr] wanted me to be a bit more aggressive offensively and run through me a little more, so that's always good to hear," Bogut said. He added that he was "definitely" impressed by Kerr, who flew to Australia to meet with his veteran center. Bogut's 15 DNPs took a toll last season but when healthy he was a mid-round fantasy option -- unfortunately a bigger offensive role is something of a double-edged sword, as increased scoring will likely be accompanied by more FT attempts (34.4 percent at the line last season).

Andrew Bogut (ribs) will not participate in this year's FIBA World Cup.
Bogut fractured his rib nine weeks ago, an injury that kept him from playing during the 2014 playoffs, and he is still not 100 percent. "My rib is not 100 percent and I'm still not back into full training," Bogut told The Daily Telegraph. "I can't see myself playing through the Worlds and a full NBA season. I've spent the last three or four seasons rehabbing injuries so this is the first time I can get focused on getting in the gym and getting better."
