CLEVELAND — Andrew Bogut will be with the Warriors in Cleveland for Game 6 Thursday night.
Whether he plays or not is another question — nobody expects him to in the wake of a painful looking knee injury Monday night where he had to be helped off the court not to return. However, there has yet to be an official announcement from the Warriors on his status.
But he will travel with the team, Warriors GM Bob Myers told 95.7 The Game in San Francisco on Tuesday.
It would be unfortunate for Bogut to be sidelined.
However, with Tyronn Lue saying he will start Kevin Love in Game 6, no Bogut forcing the Warriors to go small with the “death lineup” from the opening tip is not the worst thing. The Warriors with Draymond Green at the five — he will be back from suspension for Game 6 — have torn up Cavaliers lineups most of the series. Start that lineup and get out to an early lead and the Warriors can close out the Cavaliers on the road. Again.
