Andrew Bogut Out "Indefinitely" with Back Spasms

http://www.cbssports.com/nba/blog/eye-on-basketball/21754186/warriors-andrew-bogut-out-indefinitely-with-back-spasms

What is his problem? Carrying too much weight? Not enough core strength? Coming back too early from past injuries? Just horrid luck?

Did I say "poll"?
Sorry, Freudian slip.
I meant troll.

His NBA career is all but over, looks like he won't be playing for the Boomers in the worlds next year either. He would be too risky to take anyway.

Some harsh critics posting on that article, that obviously don't know anything about how physical it is to play basketball in the post!

Andrew plays a physical brand of basketball in the most demanding spot on the court.

I do hope he can recover, this is not good news...

His career isn't over, Triton. Bogut at 50% is still a productive NBA player.

It's just one step closer to calling curtains on the notion that he will ever be back to playing at a high level during his prime NBA years.

Was he injury prone before the NBA?

I'm guessing probably not, as otherwise he wouldn't have been a No.1 draft pick, but don't know for sure.

Has had issues with back spasms whole career.
Stress fracture in foot in second season.

Since then, FREAK elbow injury, unavoidable.

Landing on someone's foot, happens regulary. Unlucky he is 7'0 and 100+ kg's. Does anyone remember that in that game he had 4 blocks and around 8 points in the first quarter?!?!?

Wouldnt say as much injury prone as just unlucky.

Its unlucky for him a talented big man never really has shown what he is capable of, hopefully he'll be back for next season ready to play.

Lucky for him he signed that big 5 year $60 million contract because workers comp/ disability payments aren't that great. (although Bogut always seemed more than willing to put others down who are out of work through his twitter).

He's an unrestricted free agent next year, any guesses as to whats going through the minds of GSW front office?
