Warriors center Andrew Bogut will miss at least the back-to-back games at Dallas and New Orleans over the weekend due to right knee tendinitis after having the knee drained. Bogut, who will be reevaluated Monday, had the knee issue limit him to two minutes at Minnesota and keep him out of Wednesday’s win against Houston that extended the Warriors’ winning streak to 14 games.

Warriors center Andrew Bogut is questionable to play because of right knee tendinitis. He left Monday night's 102-86 win in Minnesota — the Warriors' 13th in a row — early in the first quarter with the injury. Bogut and coach Steve Kerr said after the game that they didn't think the tendinitis was anything serious. But any time Bogut is banged up is cause for concern. USA Today Sports

They go through center Andrew Bogut more than Mark Jackson did. And after thumping the Lakers Sunday night, the Warriors are 8-2 and two games clear of the Clippers for the Pacific Division lead. "We still want to push the ball -- I think we're number one in the league right now in pace of our offense, getting the ball up the floor," Bogut said. "Last season, the issue for us was when that wasn't there. What now? And it was usually one pass [and] iso. We have a lot of things in place where he wants to get ball movement and move the ball side to side, and he's emphasized that, and that's probably a key to our turnovers early in the season, because we're trying things that we're not used to. But I think it's going to get better and better." NBA.com

Most days rap wins the day, though Wednesdays are reserved for rock and heavy metal (and thus called "White Boy Wednesdays"). "I have to get on him a little bit to widen his arsenal of music," Bogut said, laughing. "No one will like it [but] I want my day. I listen to a lot of old rock and roll, old school rock and roll, some late '70s, '80s rock, [Bruce] Springsteen. And I listen to a bunch of Croatian music. I definitely can't put the Croatian on, because people will stop practicing and leave the gym. But I think the rock might pass." NBA.com

"In training camp, we did basic fundamentals," Bogut said. "We did dribbling drills. We did pivot drills. We did jump-stop drills. I'm talking like grade-school stuff. And some guys thought it was stupid, but I think it's just that attention to detail. He knew last season that we were horrible at turning the ball over, so he was all about, 'If you're double-teamed, do a jump-stop, get to your pivots.' We actually do that stuff. It's monotonous to some guys, because you're a pro and you're like, 'Holy (expletive), this is lame.' But I knew right away that he didn't care what guys thought. He was like, 'We're going to do this.' " That approach extended past training camp and into the regular season, too. "Last season, we didn't practice a lot," Bogut said. "Every coach is different, and coach Jackson liked us to be fresh for games and have fresh legs. We came in, did what we needed, scouted and got out of there. (Now) we're doing a little more with coach (Kerr). Like I said, the fundamental stuff … That worked for us last season. This season, they're different. They want to make sure we stay on the fundamentals and that kind of stuff." USA Today Sports
