Bogut Vital Part of Warriors Interior Defense

This was another physical setback for Bogut, who suffered an Achilles injury earlier in the season.

The former No. 1 overall pick has been injury-prone throughout his career and played a full 82-game schedule only once since entering the league in 2005. That happened to come in his rookie campaign for the Milwaukee Bucks, and he hasn't reached the 70-game plateau since the 2007-08 season.

When healthy, Bogut is a solid rebounder and provides an occasional offensive spark on the low block. He has averaged at least seven boards per game in every season of his career, and he has four different campaigns with double-digit averages on the glass.

Bogut has taken a backseat in the scoring department for the perimeter-minded Warriors, but he did average double-figure points in six different seasons while he was with the Bucks. Thus far, he is posting 5.6 points, 7.2 rebounds and 1.7 blocks per game in 2015-16.
