Marc Stein: ESPN sources say Mavericks center Andrew Bogut has been diagnosed with a minor bone bruise in his right knee and could be back in two weeks.
A source expressed optimism that Andrew Bogut's knee injury would not be a long-term issue. He will have an MRI on Tuesday to determine the severity.
Q: You took some hits on the way out of town, though. Your durability was questioned … Andrew Bogut: “Oh, who cares? I don’t care.” Q: Even though it seemed like it was coming from the inside (of the Warriors)? Andrew Bogut: “But that’s how it is. I don’t buy into the sources thing. I don’t buy into all that (expletive), because this league is so two-faced and everybody is so fake. The same people who made those comments will see me tomorrow and shake my hand and ask me how my family is. This league is full of people who are full of (expletive) and shallow, and that’s what you figure out in pro sports. It’s very hard to meet a genuine person who you can call your friend in this league. That’s just the reality, and I understand that. People can take parting shots. I didn’t have a great Finals series obviously, with the injury, and finish off the way I wanted to, but that’s the way it goes. I’m not bitter about it. I could have played better definitely, especially on the offensive end. But I think defensively that I provided something for them that really helped that team win games.”
Bogut is working around the clock in Melbourne to rehab a knee diagnosed as having bone bruising that will take six to eight weeks to heal. That prognosis means he cannot afford a single setback, with Bogut intent on making the “miracle” recovery he says he needs.
Without Bogut the Boomers’ aspirations of winning a medal in Rio diminish rapidly, but manager Bruce Kaider says not to give up hope. “He is back in Melbourne doing his rehab and he will be there (at the camp) next week,’’ he said. “Everything is going well, he is working around the clock doing everything he can to get himself right.
Andrew Bogut all but ruled himself out of the Rio Olympics on Thursday, saying the bone bruises around his left knee almost certainly will not be healed in time for him to play for Australia this summer. "I'm not great at math, but six to eight weeks minimum is what I've been told," the Golden State center said as his Warriors teammates ran through their shootaround practice in advance of Thursday night's Game 6 of the NBA Finals against the Cleveland Cavaliers. "It's very unlikely at this point, to be honest."
Bogut said if he can't play, he won't be going to Rio even to watch. He expressed some concerns in recent days about the Zika virus that is overshadowing much of the run-up to the Rio Games, but was committed to playing for Australia regardless. "I'm not going to be traveling around, doing all that if I'm not playing," Bogut said.
David Lee: Sorry to hear the news about @andrewbogut . Leader and UNSUNG hero ever since he joined the @Golden State Warriors. Heal up mate!
Marc J. Spears: Warriors release on Andrew Bogut: Warriors center Andrew Bogut, who suffered a significant impaction injury to his left knee during Monday's Game 5 of the NBA Finals, underwent an MRI yesterday in the Bay Area. The MRI revealed the impact resulted in bone bruises to the proximal tibia and distal femur. He traveled with the team to Cleveland for Game 6, but due to the remaining length of the NBA Finals and expected recovery time, a minimum of 6-8 weeks, he will miss the remainder of the series. The injury will not require surgery and he is expected to make a full recovery. Bogut suffered the injury at the 10:30 mark of the 3rd Quarter of Game 5 at Oracle Arena.
Marc Stein: ESPN sources say an official update on Andrew Bogut for Game 6 is now expected Wednesday as the Warriors continue to review the medical data
Injured center Andrew Bogut traveled with the Golden State Warriors to Cleveland on Tuesday afternoon in advance of Thursday night's Game 6 in the NBA Finals, according to league sources, but a firm status update on Bogut's health wasn't expected until later Tuesday night. Sources told ESPN.com that Bogut underwent an MRI exam on his sprained left knee Tuesday morning as scheduled. Yet sources said the results of that exam were being evaluated further by the Warriors' medical team during their Ohio-bound flight.
Though the Warriors did not scrimmage on Sunday, center Andrew Bogut rejoined his teammates for practice, his first activity since the Game 5 win over Portland last Wednesday. Bogut’s status for Game 1 Monday night against Oklahoma City remains uncertain, with coach Steve Kerr indicating a decision will be made after Bogut’s pregame workout Monday afternoon.
Rusty Simmons: Warriors center Andrew Bogut (adductor) returned to practice today, which Steve Kerr called "encouraging." Bogut is questionable for Game 1.
Warriors center Andrew Bogut didn't practice for a second straight day due to his right adductor strain and his status remains up in the air for the start of the Western Conference finals against the Oklahoma City Thunder.

“I thought they crossed the line,” Kerr added. “I’m all for booing guys, cheering for your own team. The appropriate cheer — if you want to go down that path — is ‘so-and-so sucks, so-and-so sucks.’ … when they were saying ‘F you Draymond,’ 20,000 people, I thought of Draymond’s kid too.
Brandon Rahbar: I asked Chet Holmgren (very loudly) about his fit with SGA and Josh Giddey: “I feel like I fit in well with them. They’re great players. Shai is a really good scorer, Josh is a great passer. Just go out there and be a great floor spacer.”
Murray on bringing a winning mentality to the Kings: “I’m excited. I’m excited to get down there. I feel like for me, the first thing that I feel like I bring to the Kings is just a winning culture, winning mindset. I think that’ll be special for me, to be able to get down there and help them win and see success in that. So I’m excited to go down there and play with a lot of really good players.”
“Listen we still run that franchise [Magic]. If they wanna sell it to us, DeVos family, we’re ready to go right now,” O’Neal said on The Big Podcast. “This message go out to the DeVos family, if you’re ready to sell Orlando Magic, sell it to somebody who’s gonna take it to the next level, that’s us. D[ennis] Scott and then, D Scott can pick everybody else. Smart people combined with common sense people and people that’s been there before, you can’t go wrong.”

“Their continuity wasn’t there,” Perkins said on a recent appearance on JJ Redick’s The Old Man & the Three podcast (h/t Lee Tran of Fadeaway World) about Westbrook and Durant. “No matter how much they tried to fake it to the public, their brotherhood, it never was a brotherhood. And that’s okay, right, because you don’t have to be somebody’s brother to go out there and win a championship. But it helps. They never just got on the same page.
