The Warriors’ Andrew Bogut Dilemma
Andrew Bogut, of course, is supposed to be the missing piece of the Warriors’ playoff puzzle. Acquired in a trade that sent Monta Ellis to the Milwaukee Bucks last season, Bogut has been nursing an ankle injury that kept him out of games last season and has cost him all but five games this season. Lee hasn’t spent a great deal of time playing with Bogut, but he saw enough to make him believe the two can be very effective together.
“Yeah, I’m very confident the two of us will play great together, it’s just a matter of getting the big fella back and getting him a part of what we’re doing right now,” says Lee. “Our front office has been very aggressive not only with making that big blockbuster trade, but also to add depth to this team. Carl [Landry] has played great this year, Jarrett Jack has played great, we had the injury to Brandon Rush, but because of our depth, we’ve been able to stay above water. It’s a big job from our front office and our coaching staff to put us in a good position, now we just need to follow through and play well.”
