    Andrew Bogut confident of return this season

    AUSTRALIAN NBA star Andrew Bogut is confident he will overcome a serious ankle injury to play for the Golden State Warriors again this season.

    Warriors owner Joe Lacob and the team's coach Mark Jackson have refused to put a timeline on Bogut's return to the court, raising the prospect Bogut's season could be over.

    However, the 28-year-old former No.1 draft pick was clear about his prospects despite missing the past 28 games.

    "I'll definitely play this season," Bogut said on Saturday.

    "I think I'll be ready to play this season. It's just a matter of when."

    Bogut was the Warriors' star recruit when traded from the Milwaukee Bucks last March, but after undergoing microfracture surgery on the ankle and missing the Australian squad's London Olympic campaign, he rushed himself back to play in the first four games of the season.

    The centre admits the ankle was not ready to support his 213cm, 120kg frame.

    "I definitely don't think I'll miss the whole season," Bogut, dressed in a black suit, said outside the Warriors' locker room in the bowels of Los Angeles' Staples Center before the team played the LA Clippers on Saturday (Sunday AEDT).

    "If I do I'll be pretty distraught about it."

    This week he began travelling with the team after spending the last month-and-a-half at home in the San Francisco Bay area rehabbing his ankle.

    Bogut's absence has not doomed the Warriors' season, with the team enjoying a 22-10 season so far. They sit in fourth place in the NBA's Western Conference.

    With the Warriors set for a playoff run, Bogut is keen to shed the suit and put on a singlet.

    "You bet," he said.

    What the hell, I thought he got surgery back in April??

    I was sure he would have been back by the new year, and be around by All Star break...but the rest of the year!?! What a nightmare. Not to be a nay-sayer, but this team is so great, that they don't need him(to win)(a championship).
    All great things come to an end...even in basketball -Me

    he had microfracture surgery in April, but the Warriors stayed mum on it till recently..so that would put his return in April since is typically a year for recovery..

    It doesn't sound like he's 3 weeks away, which is going to be three months since he last played. And he did say he would be back in 1-3 months, so.

    I guess stats aren't factual when rattled off?

    dang u guys are righta bout bogut not going to be able to return. Lacob is having him keep his lips shut and pretend that he might return this season. They are still deceiving us to keep ticket sales high. Bogut has become Yao Mang. What can I say? He got hurt. And he broke down.

    Rich Bucher says Bogut didn't look good. It's just to get a rise out of fans.

    Bogut can't play he's a bum. Wow. Bogut can't even get on the court like he used to and Biedrins can't put a ball in the basket like he used to.
