Kerr admitted the club got absolutely no warning Bogut wasn’t going to play. He just said he wasn’t feeling well and bolted. Didn’t even give it a try. Kerr maintained he isn’t worried about Bogut’s dependability when pressed on the subject after the game. Privately, though, you know all the Warriors’ brass are discussing this behind closed doors because Bogut is such a monumental element to the Warriors’ long-term aspirations. It’s a 7-foot asterisk to them possibly making it the NBA Finals and winning it all. Without him, they probably don’t get through the second round in the West. Contra Costa Times

Safe to say Nick Young had some fury to unleash against his former team. But three weeks after the Lakers sixth man declared, “I hate the Wizards,” coach Byron Scott said Young will be unavailable to play Tuesday night, sidelined by a sprained right ankle suffered in Monday’s practice. For a Lakers team that has been beaten down by injuries, most recently and notably Kobe Bryant’s torn rotator cuff, it’s just another blow. “It’s one of those things,” Scott said, “one guy gets down, there seems to be a snowball effect and it just keeps happening. Just got to keep trying to plug guys in and see what happens.” Orange County Register
