OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) -- Andrew Bogut of Australia is in the starting lineup for the Golden State Warriors against the Toronto Raptors after missing the last six games with a bad back.
The Warriors announced about 45 minutes before tipoff that Bogut would start. He participated in Golden State's morning practice and pregame workouts after not traveling with the team during its 1-4 road trip because of a protruding disk causing back spasms.
Bogut also missed 42 games recovering from microfracture surgery on his left ankle earlier this season. The 7-foot Australian center is averaging 7.1 points, 6.5 rebounds, 2.3 assists and 22.5 minutes in his 12 games with the Warriors.
