Golden State Warriors Center Andrew Bogut Says 'It’s Pretty Uneducated' To Call His Injuries Chronic

Recently acquired Golden State Warriors center Andrew Bogut was on 95.7 The Game yesterday and bluntly addressed those that consider him injury prone.

"We’re paid to play and obviously when you’re not playing you’re going to receive some negativity and that’s part of the business. What I would say is I’ve only had one injury in my NBA career that was probably was because my core wasn’t strong enough, when I had a stress fracture in my back. … The last two injuries, I can’t control falling on my arm and breaking everything in my right arm. And I can’t control having a good defensive quarter in Houston … and falling on a foot. If you call that chronic, it’s pretty uneducated in my opinion. But the reality is I have been hurt, so I need to try and, I don’t know, maybe see a witch doctor in the offseason to get that bug away from me."

Bogut's health is obviously at the center of any evaluation of the Monta Ellis trade and all we can do as Warriors fans is wait and see what happens next year.

Bogut also addressed his thoughts on the trade, the Warriors' fan base, and his thoughts on the fans booing Joe Lacob at Chris Mullin's jersey retirement ceremony.
