But he was on a minutes-limit, and shortly after opening night, the Warriors made it clear Bogut wouldnt be playing in the second of back-to-back games.In mid-November, the team announced Bogut would be shut down for seven-to-10 days, but it turned out to be longer than that. Bogut eventually traveled to L.A., to work out under the supervision of Dr. Richard Ferkel, the surgeon who performed the April surgery.
