OAKLAND, Calif. – The Golden State Warriors will be without centers Andrew Bogut and Jermaine O'Neal when they host the Miami Heat on Wednesday night.
With the All-Star break up next, Warriors coach Mark Jackson says the team wanted to give Bogut and O'Neal more time to rest nagging injuries. It will be the fourth straight game Bogut has missed because of a left shoulder injury, while O'Neal will sit out for the second consecutive game with inflammation in his surgically repaired right wrist.
David Lee, who missed two games with a sprained left shoulder and strained left hip before returning in Golden State's 123-80 win over the Philadelphia 76ers on Monday night, participated in Tuesday's practice and is expected to start at center.
Draymond Green will likely start at power forward again.
