Bogut receiving blood-manipulation treatment in L.A.

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.

Durant questionable for Monday's game in Philadelphia

Durant questionable for Monday's game in Philadelphia

Kevin Durant's status for Monday's game in Philadelphia remains up in the air.

The Warriors forward, who missed his first game of the season on Saturday, is listed as questionable for the team's game against the 76ers.

Prior to the game against the Nets, head coach Steve Kerr told the media that Durant's left hand was "still a little swollen" and called the injury a "day-to-day" thing.

Without Durant, the Warriors still managed to cruise to a 112-95 win over Brooklyn.

Durant injured his left pinky in the opening minutes against the Clippers on Thursday. He remained in the game, but late in the first quarter, he retreated to the locker room with a member of the training staff.

He returned to the game after X-rays came back negative. He played 34 minutes and finished with 25 points, 15 rebounds and seven assists.

Report: Bogut expected to join Cavs after 76ers buyout

It appears Andrew Bogut is set to see what the view is like from the other side of the NBA's top rivalry.

Traded by Dallas to Philadelphia on Thursday, the former Warriors center will receive a contract buyout from the 76ers and then join the Cleveland Cavaliers for the stretch run, according to ESPN.

On Saturday, the Cavs, Spurs and Rockets were all reported to have interest in Bogut if he was made available following a buyout.

Injuries have derailed Bogut's season. He appeared in just 26 games with the Mavericks this season and averaged 3 points, 8.3 rebounds and 1 block per contest.

Bogut was part of the two Warriors teams that faced the Cavs in the last two NBA Finals matchups.

Bogut's tenure with the Warriors came to an end on July 7, 2016 when he was traded to Dallas in order for Golden State to clear salary cap space to sign Kevin Durant.
