Warriors’ Andrew Bogut out indefinitely with back spasms

Golden State Warriors center Andrew Bogut was held out of last night’s contest against the San Antonio Spurs due to back spasms, an injury that has the big man sidelined ‘indefinitely,’ according to Rusty Simmons of The San Francisco Chronicle.

Bogut missed Thursday’s practice and underwent an MRI on his back yesterday, when the spasms were ultimately diagnosed. The extent of Bogut’s injuries are unknown at this time, as the Warriors wait to receive the results of the testing.

It’s been a tough season for Bogut injury-wise, as prior to his back ailment he was limited to 12 games due to surgery on his left ankle. Back injuries are unfortunately nothing new for Bogut, who missed 43 games from 2008-09 due to a stress fracture in his back.

When Bogut has been able to suit up for the Warriors, the center has averaged 7.1 points, 6.5 rebounds and 1.58 blocked shots. Golden State is 6-6 with Bogut in the lineup.
