The Golden State Warriors defeated the Minnesota Timberwolves on Monday by the score of 130-120. The win improved the Warriors to 50-31 on the season, sixth in the Western Conference. The Warriors were without center Andrew Bogut, who will also miss the regular season finale against the Denver Nuggets on Wednesday due to a rib injury.

Marc J. Spears, NBA writer for Yahoo! Sports, tweeted the following on Bogut's status.
Jermaine O'Neal started in place of Bogut and had 10 points, four rebounds and a steal in 21 minutes. Marreese Speights nine points and seven rebounds in 16 minutes off the bench. Draymond Green was stellar in 38 minutes off the bench with 20 points, 12 rebounds, five assists, four steals and two blocked shots.

Bogut's status for the playoffs has not yet been determined. Should Bogut miss time, expect O'Neal to start with Green and David Lee getting the majority of the minutes at forward.
Bogut is in his ninth NBA season out of Utah.  He's averaging 7.3 points on 62.7 percent shooting from the floor, to go along with 10 rebounds per game.  In 507 career games with the Milwaukee Bucks and Warriors, Bogut is averaging 11.6 points, 9.3 rebounds and 1.6 assists per game.
