News: Warriors center Andrew Bogut might not be able to play through a fractured rib, putting his availability for the playoffs very much in doubt after he suffered the injury Sunday.

Bogut has been diagnosed with a fractured rib on his right side, and told the San Francisco Chronicle the injury might be one he is unable to play through, even if he could manage the pain. The rib is too close to his lung to consider playing and risking a puncture, which means he might be unable to play until it fully heals. That could take more than a month.
