Andrew Bogut hopes to return to Warriors' lineup on Dec. 1

Andrew Bogut is targeting a return to the Golden State Warriors' lineup next Saturday against the Indiana Pacers, a source tells Yahoo! Sports.

The injury-plagued center plans to practice on Monday and, barring a setback, is expected to be back on the court after a hiatus to rest his surgically repaired left ankle.

Bogut played in four of the Warriors' first five games of the season – averaging just over 18 minutes per game – before the coaching staff decided to give Bogut time off so he could strengthen his ankle.

In the four games he's played, Bogut averaged 6.0 points and 3.8 rebounds.
