Warriors center Andrew Bogut left Friday's game against the Lakers in Shanghai, China early in the first quarter after suffering back spasms and did not return.

"There is no concern," head coach Mark Jackson said. "He had back spasms and we're just playing it safe. He actually waved me off and wanted to stay in the ballgame, but we have plenty of time to make sure he's healthy and whole, and that's important closing out this preseason."

The Warriors are playing their second of two games against the Lakers in China as part of the NBA's Global Games. They beat the Lakers in Beijing on Tuesday 100-95. Bogut finished with nine points and a game-high 14 rebounds.
