Bogut returns

Wednesday, January 30, 2013

TORONTO, Canada - Boomers big man Andrew Bogut has made a successful return from an ankle injury, playing his first NBA game in nearly three months, scoring 12 points and grabbing eight rebounds for the Golden State Warriors in a 114-102 victory Monday at Toronto.

Bogut, who started and also blocked four shots and made a steal in 23 minutes on the court, had not played since November 7 in order to allow his surgically repaired left ankle time to strengthen.

The 7-foot centre, who was the top pick of the 2005 NBA Draft, was traded from Milwaukee to the Warriors last March and only one month later underwent microfracture surgery on his left ankle.

Bogut played in four of the Warriors' first five games this season, averaging 6.0 points and 3.8 rebounds before taking a break to help his ankle heal.

Bogut was among six double-digit scorers for the Warriors, who were led by forward David Lee's 21 points and 12 rebounds.

Golden State improved to 27-17, fifth in the Western Conference, while the Raptors, led by 22 points from Aaron Gray, fell to 16-29, 11th in the Eastern Conference.
