OAKLAND — Golden State center Andrew Bogut had his injured right knee drained and will sit out games Saturday and Sunday for the NBA-best Warriors.

Bogut has tendinitis in the knee and will be re-evaluated Monday, the team said Friday. He left Monday night's 102-86 win in Minnesota early in the first quarter with the injury.

The Warriors (19-2) are riding a 14-game winning streak heading into Saturday's game at Dallas before a Sunday game at New Orleans. The three-game trip wraps up Tuesday in Memphis.

The 7-foot Bogut is averaging 7.1 points, 9.3 rebounds and 3.0 assists in 20 games.
