Warriors' Bogut out indefinitely after PRP therapy

OAKLAND — Golden State Warriors center Andrew Bogut is out indefinitely after undergoing platelet-rich plasma therapy on his ailing right knee.

The Warriors said that Bogut consulted with the team's medical staff and his personal physician from Australia before deciding on the treatment. He will miss his fifth straight game when the Warriors host Oklahoma City on Thursday night.

Bogut is averaging 7.1 points, 9.3 rebounds, three assists and 2.2 blocks. He has played a key role in helping the Warriors get off to an NBA-best 21-3 start.

The 7-footer is the anchor of Golden State's smothering defense, though his seasons have often been derailed by injuries, including last spring when a fractured rib kept him from playing in the first-round playoff loss to the Los Angeles Clippers.
