Steinmetz: Golden State Warriors center Andrew Bogut's rehab to take longer than expected

Kelley L Cox-US PRESSWIRE

Andrew Bogut will miss more than the initially projected 7-10 days for the Golden State Warriors, which is disappointing if not entirely unanticipated.

I suppose many of us expected Andrew Bogut to miss time this season so news of him actually missing more games isn't exactly bombshell breaking news.

Nonetheless, it is mildly disappointing to hear that he'll be out longer than the 7-10 days that the Golden State Warriors initially announced he'd be out, as reported today by CSN Bay Area's Matt Steinmetz.

That means the next possible game Bogut could play in would be a game against the Brooklyn Nets at Oracle Arena on Nov. 21. That would be two weeks from the team's initial seven-to-10 day announcement.

"That's where we are," Jackson said. "He's going to continue to rehab and when he's ready to go, he's ready to go. I don't even think it makes sense to put a number on it. At the end of the day, when he's ready, he's ready. We're not going to force a timetable. We're going to use wisdom on it.

If there's a silver lining here - and trust me, I know I might be reaching here - it's that centers Andris Biedrins and Festus Ezeli will get even more time to rebuild and build confidence respectively in a trial-by-fire setting with Bogut remaining out. If the team can remain competitive - despite the pair of disappointing losses recently, the team is still only a game removed from .500 - with Bogut out, this game experience could pay off down the road.

And hey, as long as Biedrins is a knock-down free throw shooter, it's all good, right?
