Bogut (back) will be active and available to play in Wednesday's game against the Celtics, Tania Ganguli of the Los Angeles Times reports.

EDGE Analysis

Bogut has missed the last three games with back tightness, but after testing it out during pregame warmups Wednesday, he's been given the green light to take the court. That said, Bogut is stuck in a bench role and the Lakers will likely take a cautious approach with his workload in his first game back, so Bogut will likely remain off the fantasy radar for now.

Bogut (back) is listed as questionable for Wednesday's game against the Celtics.

EDGE Analysis

Bogut has missed the Lakers' previous three games while battling back tightness, but with two full days off since the team's last contest, there's hope he might be able to make a return Wednesday. Even if he's able to dress for the contest, Bogut is unlikely to receive more than a handful of minutes with Julius Randle thriving as the top backup to starting center Brook Lopez.

Bogut (back) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Grizzlies.

EDGE Analysis

Bogut is slated to miss his third straight game, as he continues to deal with tightness in his back. The Lakers have yet to provide any sort of timetable for a return, so for now, it appears he'll be evaluated on a game-to-game basis. Bogut has been limited to single-digit minutes in all but one game he's played thus far, so even when he's at full strength, he'll struggle to be a fantasy contributor.

Bogut (back) has been ruled out for Friday's game against the Nets, Eric Pincus of Basketball Insiders reports.

EDGE Analysis

Bogut is dealing with some tightness in his back and will be missing a second consecutive game. That being said, he's only logged double-digit minutes once this season, so his absence shouldn't have a drastic impact on the team's regular rotation. If anything, look for Ivica Zubac to pick up a few extra minutes.

Bogut won't play during Thursday's game against the Trail Blazers due to back tightness, Mike Trudell of Lakers.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Bogut is averaging just 7.2 minutes per game this season, so his absence won't leave a huge hole in the Lakers' rotation. While he's sidelined, Brook Lopez, Julius Randle and Ivica Zubac are all candidates to absorb some of his workload.

Bogut (migraine) will be available to play in Wednesday's matchup against the Wizards, Mike Bresnahan of Spectrum SportsNet reports.

EDGE Analysis

Bogut left Tuesday's practice with a migraine that was causing him blurred vision, but is at least feeling good enough a day later to be available to play Wednesday. That being said, it doesn't guarantee Bogut will see the court or take on his normal workload, so it will likely be a situation to avoid for the time being. In the event that Bogut doesn't see the floor, Ivica Zubac could see his first action of the season.

Bogut left Tuesday's practice with a migraine, Mike Trudell of Lakers.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

With Bogut having a history with migraines, it looks like this isn't anything out of the ordinary, but it's still a situation worth monitoring depending on the severity. Expect another update to come on Bogut prior to Wednesday's game against the Wizards, but there isn't much concern surrounding the big man as of now.

Bogut (groin) went through a full practice Tuesday, Mike Trudell of Lakers.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

The veteran missed the entire preseason with a lingering groin issue, but the expectation all along has been that he'll be ready for the start of the regular season. With a full practice in the books Tuesday, that will likely be the case. Barring some sort of setback Wednesday, expect Bogut to be available off the bench Thursday against the Clippers.

Bogut (groin) was limited during Monday's practice, Mike Bresnahan of Spectrum SportsNet reports.

EDGE Analysis

Bogut reportedly went through everything but the team's final 5-on-5 scrimmage, so he continues to inch closer to a return. The 7-foot big man will hope to be elevated to a full participant over the next few days, though he remains questionable for Thursday's regular-season opener against the Clippers.

Bogut (groin) participated in Friday's shootaround but is out for the day's preseason finale against the Clippers, Mike Bresnahan of Spectrum SportsNet reports.

EDGE Analysis

Bogut, who is expected to be healthy for the season opener, is trending in the right direction but will be held out of Friday's game seemingly for precautionary reasons. He projects to serve as starter Brook Lopez's backup during the upcoming season and can likely be avoided in most fantasy drafts.
