Warriors' Andrew Bogut suffers flare reaction to cortisone shot

After suffering from inflammation in his left shoulder, Warriors center Andrew Bogut will be sitting out even longer due to a bad reaction to treatment.

In an attempt to treat the inflammation, Bogut received a cortisone injection and is now suffering from a cortisone flare reaction-- a rare side effect which is apparently very painful.

Head coach Mark Jackson spoke to reporters including Diamond Leung of San Jose Mercury News about the discouraging news, stating, "It's frustrating, but he's still recovering, and we're going to miss him absolutely. Hopefully, this isn't something that is prolonged."

The 29-year-old took to Twitter, however, to express his frustration with the setback.
Bogut did not participate in practice Monday, and has sat-out the last five games including Wednesday night's win against the Sacramento Kings.

Before Feb. 6, the seven-footer had not missed a game since injuries to his ankle and back cost him 50 games last season.
Bogut is the team's top rebounder and defender, and the team is hoping to have him back soon.
