Bogut to join Warriors early after Cousins' injury

The topic of Andrew Bogut surfaced. He is the only traditional center on the roster tonight as Cousins and Damian Jones (torn left pectoral muscle) will both miss the game against San Antonio.

When Steve Kerr told Bogut he's starting, he "burst out laughing", Kerr said.

The Warriors will enter their game against the Spurs atop the Western Conference with a 47-20 record.

DeRozan scored 10 points in the final quarter, including a pair of pull-up jumpers over Klay Thompson, to seal the victory. San Antonio forged a 19-2 run early in the second period and led by as many as 14 in a half that featured eight ties and six lead changes.

Bogut hooked up with Warriors superstar Steph Curry for an epic alley-oop in the second minute of play, marking Bogut's first points.

Bogut, who had been playing in Australia, was previously with Golden State from 2012-16.

Speaking to Britain's national broadcaster BBC, he raised the prospect of prorogation - ending the parliament session prematurely. To get a fresh vote, he said, Mrs. "This is something that requires proper consideration", a spokesman for May's office said.

With DeMarcus Cousins ruled out Monday due to a sore right foot, the Warriors needed a new starting center.

Andre Bogut ended up starting for the Warriors in his first game back since rejoining the team, and the National Basketball Association, after spending a season playing in Australia in the NBL.

Cousins has averaged 15.6 points, 7.9 rebounds, 3.6 assists, 1.5 blocks, and 1.3 steals across 21 appearances since making his long-awaited midseason debut.

Cousins was inactive, as was Andre Iguodala (dental work).
