While the Warriors are on the road playing the first game of a three-game roadtrip Friday in Minnesota, center Andrew Bogut is in Los Angeles rehabbing his surgically-repaired left ankle.

The USA Today's Sam Amick is reporting the Warriors have confirmed that Bogut is receiving blood-manipulation treatment while the team is on the road.

The treatment Bogut is receiving is similar to the procedure Kobe Bryant went through in 2011, and according to Amick, the blood manipulation is expected to decrease the inflammation in Bogut's ankle and speed up the recovery process.

Mark Jackson announced earlier this week that Bogut will be out for more than the previously announced seven to 10 days to rest his ankle and did not give a time table for his return.

Bogut has played a total of four games this season, averaging 18 minutes on the floor.
