OAKLAND – Starting center Andrew Bogut will not accompany the Warriors on their two-road trip to Dallas and San Antonio, coach Mark Jackson said shortly before the team left for the airport Monday afternoon.

Bogut remains sore after sustaining a pelvic/groin contusion upon taking a knee to the groin area from Grizzlies center Marc Gasol in a 100-93 win over Memphis Friday night.

"Bogs will stay here, continue to get treatment and try to get as close to 100 percent as possible,'' Jackson said.

Starting Power forward David Lee will make the trip, Jackson said, but has not practiced in a week and is unlikely to play in either game.

"He's made progress, feeling better,'' Jackson said. "He'll be on the trip, but I don't expect him to play tomorrow.''

Bogut, averaging 7.7 points and 10.2 rebounds per game, will miss his 12th and 13th games this season and likely will be replaced by veteran Jermaine O'Neal.

Lee, averaging 18.5 points and 9.4 rebounds, will miss his eighth and ninth games. Jackson gave no indication of who would replace him in the starting lineup.
