Warriors GM Addresses Bogut Handling
Warriors general manager Bob Myers, in the wake of the controversy surrounding Andrew Bogut’s left ankle surgery, fell on the sword.
“I know it’s being perceived that it was mishandled and not handled appropriately,” Myers said during the pregame show on “Chronicle Live.” “Ultimately, that rests on my shoulders. … Ultimately, the last thing I want to do, or anybody in the organization wants to do, is deceive the fans. So the fact that some people feel that way, I feel really bad about that.”
Back in April, Golden State announced that Bogut had arthroscopic surgery and said he would be out three months after getting his ankle cleaned out. But Wednesday the Warriors admitted Bogut also had microfracture surgery that day.
“It’s a group of people. It’s not one person in a room writing a script,” Myers said. “In this specific situation, I feel like I could’ve done a better job, personally, as to how it was conveyed. … There is no use really offering anything beyond that. ”
