Golden State Warriors interim head coach Luke Walton said in an article yesterday that center Andrew Bogut is likely out for tonight's game against the L.A. Clippers after not practicing yesterday, according to Carl Steward of the Bay Area News Group.

Andrew Bogut did not practice and had yet to be cleared through the NBA's concussion protocol. Interim head coach Luke Walton said, "He's most likely out ... we're preparing as if he won't be there." Festus Ezeli would start a fourth straight game in Bogut's place.

However, things briefly looked promising today when Diamond Leung reported that Bogut made an appearance at shootaround this morning.

He was ultimately ruled out later this afternoon and I am certainly not thinking he needs to rush back for a bunch of November games.

There's no reason to believe the Warriors can't beat the Clippers without him.
