The Warriors set no timetable for Bogut’s return. Bauman compared the Bogut situation to Houston’s Dwight Howard, who missed a little more than three weeks after receiving platelet-rich plasma therapy on his strained right knee. "Thank God it’s nothing major,” said agent David Bauman, whose Relativity Sports agency also represents Howard. “It’s a temporary setback. I’m not going to say two, three, four weeks, but that’s probably a reasonable assumption if all goes well, and then he’ll return sometime in January.” Contra Costa Times

Rusty Simmons: The Warriors say center Andrew Bogut had platelet rich plasma therapy on right knee, and there is no timetable for his return. According to medical Web sites, PRP patients usually get pain relief within 3-4 weeks and continue to improve over a period of 3-6 months. Twitter @Rusty_SFChron

Mitch McGary’s rough rookie season continues. The Thunder forward will miss the next 2-3 weeks with periostitis (inflammation) in his left tibia. It's not expected to be a serious injury, but McGary's court activity will be lowered as a treatment. This news comes only a few days after McGary finally made his NBA debut, scoring three points and grabbing four rebounds in six brief minutes against the Suns on Sunday. Oklahoman
