by RotoWire Staff | Special to
(9:33 am ET) Warriors center Andrew Bogut (back) shed 22 pounds during the offseason, CSN Bay Area reports.

Bogut is a new man in training camp, and there's no sign of the back injury that plagued him during the summer. He credits watching the documentary "Is Sugar the New Fat?" in changing his eating habits.

A slimmer, more active Bogut might be less of a misfit when the Warriors go to a smaller lineup, a strategy that worked so well for them last season.

Trailblazers forward Cliff Alexander suffers bone bruise
by RotoWire Staff | Special to
(10/3/2015) Trailblazers forward Cliff Alexander will be out for a couple of weeks with a bone bruise, coach Terry Stotts said Saturday, Joe Freeman of The Oregonian reports.

Alexander underwent an MRI on Friday, which revealed an aliment in his left knee. The undrafted, once top-5 recruit in the class of 2014 is looking to find a spot on the Blazers roster after having a disappointing freshman season at Kansas.

Alexander averaged 7.5 points, 6.4 rebounds, 1.2 blocks, 0.3 assists, and 0.1 steals in 23 minutes per game through 11 summer league games with the Nets, which was enough for the Blazers to offer him a contract.

He has reportedly played well thus far in training camp and very well could find his way on to a dismantled Portland team in need of some front-court depth after losing LaMarcus Aldridge, Robin Lopez, and Joel Freeland this offseason.
