Offseason ankle surgery cost Andrew Bogut all but four games this season, but he's expected to return to the lineup Monday night in Toronto, reports the San Jose Mercury News.

Warriors starting center Andrew Bogut is aiming at coming back Monday night in Toronto. It will all depend on how he feels after pregame warmups. But multiple sources said Bogut is planning to give it ago.


The Warriors are being quiet on the matter and coach Mark Jackson maintains his stance that Bogut will come back when he is ready. Bogut doesn't want to create a big to-do, one source said, and ramp up

Acquired in a March 2012 deal that sent Monta Ellis to Milwaukee, Bogut has played in only four games total for the Warriors, averaging 6 points and 3.8 rebounds in 18.3 minutes. He has been plagued by injuries throughout his career, but helped Milwaukee finish as the fourth-ranked defense during the 2010-11 season.
