Andrew Bogut will miss the Warriors’ game on Friday against the Spurs, and is out indefinitely due to suffering from back spasms, head coach Mark Jackson told reporters before tip-off.
The ‘indefinitely’ part, along with Jackson’s demeanor while delivering the news, may be cause for legitimate concern.
From Rusty Simmons of the San Francisco Chronicle:
The big man, who has played only 12 games this season because of left ankle surgery, missed Thursday’s practice and had an MRI on his back Friday. Jackson said he didn’t mean to sound grim about Bogut’s condition, but the team doesn’t yet have the results from his medical tests.
Golden State got off to its hot start with Bogut sidelined, and though the team is certainly not better off without him in the long run, they may be able to regain that early-season stride by once again playing with him out of the lineup for what may be an extended period of time, pending those test results.
