OAKLAND -- Warriors center Andrew Bogut was at the facility Monday, but he did not practice as expected.
Golden State announced that Bogut, who has missed the past nine games while recovering from surgery on his left ankle in April, was rejoining the team after spending nearly a week away. He was in Los Angeles rehabbing his left ankle under the supervision of Dr. Richard Ferkel, who performed the surgery on Bogut in April.
There was hope that Bogut could return to practice Monday, even reports of him returning to game action this week. But everything is based on what Bogut's ankle can handle, and clearly he isn't ready for practice yet.
The Warriors have two more practices before Thursday's game against Denver, then one more before Saturday's game against Indiana. Bogut will have to show his ankle can hold up from full-throttle practice before he returns to the lineup.
