Andrew Bogut Injury: Updates on Warriors Star's Achilles and Return
Kevin Jairaj-USA TODAY Sports

Golden State Warriors center Andrew Bogut missed one game because of a strained right Achilles but is ready to return.

Bogut Active vs. Hawks

Monday, Feb. 22

Bogut is available to play Monday against the Atlanta Hawks, the Warriors announced


Warriors Continue to Thrive with or Without Bogut 

The Australian big man is a menace around the rim, and the Warriors defense had limited opponents to just 96.6 points per 100 possessions while he was on the floor prior to sitting on Feb. 20, according to NBA.com. By comparison, the Warriors allowed 101.5 points per 100 possessions when Bogut sat prior to Feb. 20. 

However, there is a silver lining.

The Warriors' ultra-small lineup featuring Stephen Curry, Klay Thompson, Andre Iguodala, Harrison Barnes and Draymond Green has torched opponents all season long. According to NBA.com, that five-man unit has outscored opponents by 51.3 points per 100 possessions during the 124 minutes it's been on the floor. 

So while the Warriors were lacking in terms of size and strength with Bogut out, head coach Steve Kerr had plenty of lineup permutations to play with to try to keep the team's historic pursuit alive.
