Marc Spears of Yahoo! Sports has some good news regarding Andrew Bogut's injury:

Original Text

The late-season storm around the Golden State Warriors has involved a lot of off-the-court drama, but Andrew Bogut's pelvis is an actual on-court story that bears monitoring.    

Bogut was accidentally kneed in the groin by Marc Gasol during Friday's game against Memphis, an incident that led to the center being taken out of the game, as Dime Alert on Twitter reported:

CSN Bay Area later confirmed the injury as a pelvic contusion.

Now, Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo! Sports is reporting that Bogut will be out of action for at least "several days" and the team will make a roster move as a result:

This is the first season since 2010-11 that Bogut has been able to play in more than 32 games, appearing in 63 so far, and the results have been solid. He's averaging 7.6 points per game on a career-high 62.7 percent shooting, along with 10.1 rebounds per contest. 

The Warriors aren't a team that has a lot of size, relying on outside scorers like Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson, so Bogut's absence is sure to be felt. The good news is it doesn't sound like something that will be a long-term issue.
