OAKLAND – Andrew Bogut's four-game absence is over, as the 7-foot center will return to action Sunday night when the Warriors face the Jazz at Oracle Arena, coach Mark Jackson said in his pregame briefing.

Bogut, who sustained a pelvis/groin contusion in the first quarter of the March 28 win over the Grizzlies, will be join in the starting lineup by forwards Andre Iguodala and Draymond Green, along with guards Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson.

Green will start at power forward in place of David Lee, who remains out indefinitely with a strained right hamstring.

Lee, who has not played since March 22, underwent an MRI test, which revealed significant nerve inflammation, affecting his ability to return has quickly as he had hoped.

It is conceivable, Jackson indicated, that Lee could be out for another week or more.
