Bogut Doesn’t Plan to Return this Season
Newly acquired Warriors center Andrew Bogut ruled out a late-season return from a fractured left ankle and put into question his playing status for the 2012 Summer Olympics during a wide-ranging 1 1/2-hour interview with The Chronicle on Thursday afternoon.
“At this point, I think it’s safe to say that returning this season is not going to happen,” Bogut said during lunch at a downtown Oakland cafe. “The most important thing is to get the bone right. If I come back at 99 percent, and the bone is unsettled, and something shards off, I’m in big trouble.
“It would be nice to play this season, but it’s not going to happen.”
