Andrew Bogut suffered a right adductor strain in Game 5 of Golden State’s second round series against the Blazers, and though he returned to practice with the team on Sunday, Warriors head coach Steve Kerr said he’d be questionable for Monday’s Game 1 against the Thunder in the Western Conference Finals.
"We got up and down the floor a little bit with some drill work and he did everything," Kerr told reporters, via CSN Bay Area. "I would just say he’s questionable for (Monday). He’s got to go through his warmup before the game and we’ll see. It was encouraging today just to get him on the floor. And there were no setbacks."
If Bogut can’t go, Festus Ezeli would get the start.

Bogut appeared in 70 regular season games for the Warriors, and was a part of the team’s most-used lineup which outscored opponents by 13.2 points per 100 possessions. When Ezeli played with the starters during the regular season instead of Bogut, that number dropped by 10 points per 100 possessions over 142 total minutes.
