Golden State won't sneak up on anyone this season. They have sharpshooter Stephen Curry and they added perennial All-Star Andre Iguodala to a roster that also includes rising stars Klay Thompson and Harrison Barnes.
And on Friday, center Andrew Bogut declared that he is 100 percent healthy. He also said that he is a top-three center in the league with one caveat.
"Yeah, when healthy," Bogut said, according to multiple outlets. "And I'm healthy now."
"I haven't had any restrictions since July," Bogut said. "Five-on-five, three-on-three, four-on-four, conditioning drills, running, jumping, weights -- no restrictions."
Bogut was limited to 32 regular-season games last year as the Warriors made a run to the playoffs, where he overcame back and knee injuries to give Golden State a taste of his abilities.
The 7-foot Bogut is in the final year of a five-year contract. Milwaukee made the Australian native the overall No. 1 pick in the NBA Draft in 2005.
