OAKLAND – Warriors center Andrew Bogut and power forward David Lee, listed as questionable before Sunday night's game against the Knicks, will not be in uniform, coach Mark Jackson said in his pregame briefing.

Moreover, their status for the upcoming road trip – Tuesday at Dallas and Wednesday at San Antonio, is in doubt.

Veteran Jermaine O'Neal will start against New York in place of Bogut, while Marreese Speights will make his second consecutive start in place of Lee.

Even if Bogut were to join the team Monday for the flight to Dallas, Jackson conceded "he's more than likely not going to play."

Bogut sustained a contusion of the pelvic/groin contusion in the first quarter of last Friday night's game against Memphis. He underwent an MRI test, which showed no structural damage but he remains sore and is listed as day to day.

"It could have been a lot worse than day to day," Jackson said. "Obviously, we won't know. He'll continue to get treatment, continue to rest, but he did feel better today than he did yesterday and we expect to continue."

Lee has not practiced since straining his right hamstring March 22 against San Antonio.
