It’s going to be an interesting season in Golden State — there are expectations now. No sneaking up on anyone.

They have a budding superstar in Stephen Curry, they went out and got a No. 2 guy and perimeter defender in Andre Iguodala, they have an All-Star in David Lee and good role players like Klay Thompson and Harrison Barnes.

But as we’ve talked about here before, Andrew Bogut is the playoff key for this team — if they are really going to make a run they need him healthy and defending the rim on defense. He was a key last playoffs and the second half surge of the Warriors the Warriors made after he missed 50 games to start the season.

Bogut says he is fully healthy and told the Associated Press he is ready to roll this season.

Golden State Warriors center Andrew Bogut says he is “100 percent” healthy and feeling the best he has since fracturing his left ankle in January 2012.

Bogut said Friday that he is not limited in any workouts and expects “to play a lot of minutes” this season. He is entering the final year of his five-year, $60 million deal.

Go ahead and be shocked he thinks he ready for a big year in a contract year.

If he’s healthy and performs he’ll be 29 when he’s a free agent next summer and will get paid again. But with a list of injuries that would read like Bruce Wayne’s physicals, he’s going to have to prove it to teams.

Warriors’ fans hope he does. They need him.

    He said that before he got out of bed before subsequently spraining his ankle putting his shoes on.

    Rarely was healthy in Milwaukee. Looks good when on the floor, but that is rare.
