OAKLAND –- Grabbing at his right thigh, Warriors center Andrew Bogut went into the locker room with 3:59 left in the first half of Game 5 of the Western Conference semifinals against Portland at Oracle Arena Monday night.
Bogut remained in the locker room for the remainder of the half. He came out at halftime and made an attempt to warm up before walking off shaking his head, after which it was decided he would not return.
He was diagnosed with a strain of the right adductor.
Bogut’s exit came less than a minute after he took a spill on the defensive end. He came up limping and shortly thereafter was replaced by backup Festus Ezeli.
Bogut had 4 points and four rebounds in nine minutes before leaving the game.
