Bogut has knee drained, will miss weekend games

OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) Golden State center Andrew Bogut had his injured right knee drained and will sit out games Saturday and Sunday for the NBA-best Warriors.

Bogut has tendinitis in the knee and will be re-evaluated Monday, the team said Friday. He left Monday night's 102-86 win in Minnesota early in the first quarter with the injury.

The Warriors (19-2) are riding a 14-game winning streak heading into Saturday's game at Dallas before a Sunday game at New Orleans. The three-game trip wraps up Tuesday in Memphis.

The 7-foot Bogut is averaging 7.1 points, 9.3 rebounds and 3.0 assists in 20 games.
