After his knee injury, can the Warriors prevail without Andrew Bogut? | The Tylt
Golden State center Andrew Bogut seriously injured his left knee during Sunday night's Game 5. Apparently he'll need six to eight weeks to fully recover, which means he's out for the remainder of the NBA Finals. "It's bad news for our team," coach Steve Kerr said. The Associated Press called Bogut's loss "a major blow to Golden State's defensive scheme."
Can the Warriors prevail without Bogut?
Draymond Green, who will likely play center in Bogut's absence, said the news is a blow to the Warriors but also "an opportunity for someone else to step up."
And Lebron James said that "Even with Bogut out, they still have so much firepower that it doesn't take any of the focus out of our mind going into Game 6."
Is Bogut's loss a crushing blow that could deny the Warriors victory? Or can they do it without him?
