Bogut, Lee starting for Warriors vs. Timberwolves
OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) Banged-up big men Andrew Bogut and David Lee are in the starting lineup for the Golden State Warriors against the Minnesota Timberwolves.
The team made the announcement about 30 minutes before Friday night’s game.
Bogut strained his right knee and Lee sprained his left shoulder in the fourth quarter of Golden State’s 102-94 loss to the Indiana Pacers on Monday night. Bogut banged knees with another player under the basket, while Lee was injured when his pump-fake drew Pacers center Roy Hibbert in the air and on top of him for a foul.
The Warriors were off Tuesday. Neither Bogut nor Lee practiced Wednesday. Both were limited during Thursday’s practice and took part in Friday’s morning shootaround.
