Warriors center Andrew Bogut revealed to reporters in Memphis that the source of discomfort in right knee has been diagnosed as chondromalacia, more commonly known as "runner's knee."
The Warriors during the past week have described Bogut's malady is tendinitis.
Bogut's disclosure adds another dimension to his status. It is not known when he will be able to return to action.
Runner's knee, of Bogut's revelation is accurate, is described as a condition in which the cartilage on the undersurface of the kneecap deteriorates and softens.
There may be any number of reasons for it, including but not restricted to age or previous injury or high activity level.
Chondromalacia sometimes leads to surgery to alleviate the symptoms.
Bogut has missed the last four games and is scheduled to undergo another evaluation on Wednesday, after the Warriors return to the Bay Area from Memphis.
