OAKLAND Warriors center Andrew Bogut participated in hissecond complete practice on Tuesday, setting up the possibility that he couldplay in Wednesdays regular-season opener against the Suns in Phoenix.Bogut hasnt played in an NBA game since January, when hefractured his left ankle while playing for the Bucks.Bogut had been a limited participant in most of the Warriorspractices until Monday when he went through an entire practice. He did thesame thing on Tuesday, although the practice was somewhat abbreviated becausethe team left afterward for Phoenix.He responded well, Warriors coach Mark Jackson said. Now,its about getting treatment. Well play (Wednesday) by ear. He did exactly whatwe needed him to do.If Bogut doesnt play on Wednesday, the next chance he wouldhave to play would be Fridays home opener against the MemphisGrizzlies. If Bogut doesn't start, expect rookie Festus Ezeli to start at center for Golden State.
