The entire organization is holding their breath regarding Boogie, and Bogut is coming back earlier than planned.

NBA: Golden State Warriors at Houston Rockets Troy Taormina-USA TODAY Sports

Golden State Warriors center DeMarcus Cousins will have an MRI on Monday. Boogie left Saturday’s victory over the Oklahoma City Thunder in the fourth quarter due to a sore right foot.

The team is listing Cousins as questionable for Monday’s game against the San Antonio Spurs, though they’ll surely play it safe with the four-time All-Star. The playoffs are right around the corner, and Cousins is still rounding into form following a year-long absence after tearing his Achilles, so the team will be very cautious.

And the team is surely worried that something more serious is at play.

With Cousins’ status in the air, Andrew Bogut is shifting his timeline, and will be in the lineup on Monday.

Bogut landed in the Bay Area on Saturday, but Warriors coach Steve Kerr said the center would stay in the Bay, rather than travel across the country following his 15-hour flight. The Warriors play the Minnesota Timberwolves on Tuesday, before returning home on Thursday to face the Indiana Pacers. That was when Bogut was set to make his season debut.

But with the injury to Cousins, Bogut is now meeting the team in San Antonio, and will be ready to play the final two games of the road trip.

We’ll keep you updated as soon as any information comes in regarding Cousins’ injury. In the meantime, get ready for some Bogut!
