The Golden State Warriors are off on a three-game road trip, but their key big man is staying in Los Angeles to try to get himself healthy enough to return to the lineup.
Andrew Bogut has been undergoing injection treatments on his surgically repaired ankle, in hopes of expediting the healing process. He’ll continue to do so as his teammates travel, reports Sam Amick of USA Today:
The Warriors have confirmed that Bogut has received Regenokine injections, a blood-manipulation treatment on his ankle that is similar to the one Lakers star Kobe Bryant had on his right knee during the 2011 offseason and to which he credits his physical revival ever since. The procedure is expected to assist in Bogut’s recovery and diminish the inflammation in the ankle.
Regenokine injections, according to its website, is a program that uses “the body’s own proteins to reduce inflammation.” It is used to treat osteoarthritis, joint pain, low back pain and some muscle and tendon issues.
Really, it appears that Bogut is willing to try anything at this point. And I can tell you from an emotional standpoint, the fact that it’s taking so long for him to be back at full strength is beginning to wear on Bogut, because he wants nothing more than to return to the lineup at full strength, and without restrictions.
