OAKLAND, Calif. — Golden State Warriors center Andrew Bogut will be sidelined the next seven to 10 days to rest and strengthen his surgically repaired left ankle.

The announcement Thursday is the kind of setback Bogut and the Warriors were hoping to avoid this season.

The 7-footer from Australia was held scoreless while playing 17 minutes in Golden State’s 106-96 win against Cleveland on Wednesday night. He had five assists and three rebounds.
Bogut sat out all of the preseason. He has moved slowly and showed little lift while playing four of the first five regular-season games.


The 2005 No. 1 overall pick fractured his ankle Jan. 25 with Milwaukee and missed the rest of the season after being traded to Golden State for guard Monta Ellis, among others
