OAKLAND, Calif. Geno Atkins Camo Jersey . —Golden State
Warriors centre Andrew Bogut fully expects to be in the lineup for the season
opener Oct. 31 at Phoenix after undergoing surgery this spring on his
troublesome ankle. How much he plays during the exhibition schedule, hes still
not sure. Bogut believes he will be nearly full strength by the start of
training camp Oct. 3, but might still be limited during the preseason as a
precaution. “I definitely want to be ready for training camp. I think it will be
close,” Bogut said Sunday before heading to a Monday morning workout in
Australia. “The immediate goal with all of this is to make sure Im ready for the
first game. Whether that means playing only half the preseason games, its just
about being smart with my ankle. Theres no point in trying to get ready for Oct.
1 when an extra week could significantly help. Its just a matter of monitoring
it very smartly and not doing anything stupid.” Last week, Bogut began light
jogging on a treadmill as part of his recovery—and plans to do more this week
at a higher intensity. The 7-foot Bogut underwent surgery on his fractured ankle
April 27 to clean out loose particles and bone spurs. The 2005 No. 1 overall
draft pick out of Utah, he is yet to play for the Warriors since being acquired
in a trade from Milwaukee on March 13 that sent Monta Ellis to the Bucks. Bogut
broke his ankle Jan. 25 when he landed awkwardly against Houston and missed the
rest of the season. That was another injury to plague Bogut during his career.
He missed the end of the 2009-10 season when he dislocated his right elbow,
sprained his right wrist and broke his right hand in a hard fall to the floor.
The injury bothered him for much of last season. Bogut, averaging 12.7 points,
9.3 rebounds and 1.6 blocked shots for his career, also missed significant time
with an injured lower back in the 2008-09 season. He is eager for a fresh start
out West in the Bay Area. “The last couple of years Ive had some previous
injuries,” Bogut said. “This is a big season.” He also was sad to sit out the
London Olympics—which would have been his third Summer Games—with
Australia. “Yeah, very tough,” he said. “I watched the opening ceremony and was
kind of thinking, what if and what could have been? Its been quite a frustrating
last six months for me. Its been a long, long process of rehab and surgeries.
Ive tried to stay positive throughout it. I couldnt really control what happened
but at the same time I was highly disappointed not to go to what would have been
my third Olympics.” New Warriors general manager Bob Myers sure would be
thrilled to have his roster healthy and available from Day 1. Point guard
Stephen Curry underwent arthroscopic surgery on his right ankle April 25 and has
been working out at team headquarters this summer. Curry missed 41 of Golden
States 67 games last season with the sprained right ankle, and like Bogut is
ready to get started again. Bogut will be back in California in a couple of
weeks, first stopping in Los Angeles for a doctors appointment before joining
his teammates to get to work. “Theyve done a great job thinking outside the
box,” Bogut said of the Warriors building a roster. “We look good on paper but
we still have to go out there and win games.” A.J. Green Youth Jersey . —The Norfolk
Admirals overcame an early deficit to stretch their American Hockey
League-record winning streak to 22. Geno Atkins Pink Jersey . And each Miami Heat
player offered it a different greeting. Mike Miller bowed. Udonis Haslem kissed
it three times. http://www.nflproshopbengals.com/jermaine-gresham-jerseys
. Phoenix managed to win despite being outshot 36-21 in the game, the eighth
time in this years playoffs that the Coyotes have been outshot by at least 15
shots in a game; they have a 4-4 record in those games. Andy Dalton Official Jersey . 20 teams are
1-1, set to either move forward or fall below .500 this week. Geno Atkins Elite Jersey . Brazilian
midfielder Oscar marked his first start for Chelsea with two long-range goals,
but Arturo Vidal pulled a goal back close to halftime and substitute Fabio
Quagliarella equalized late on. “We are disappointed and a little bit deflated
to get in a great position to win the game and come away with only a draw,”
Chelsea manager Roberto di Matteo said.The city council of Glendale, Arizona has
approved a reconfigured 20-year, $320 million lease package that could allow
former San Jose Sharks executive Greg Jamison to buy the Phoenix Coyotes. The
deal passed by a vote of 4-2 and is conditional on the purchase of the Coyotes
being completed by January 31, 2013. The package will reportedly pay Jamison
approximately $15 million annually to help run the Jobing.com Arena in Glendale.
The vote late on Tuesday night came after a lengthy debate among council
members, followed by several passionate public comments both for and against the
lease deal. Jamison was among the speakers who presented his case before
Glendale mayor Elaine Scruggs and a six-member council. One counciil seat is
vacant, meaning the vote was among five members and the mayor. Rey Maualuga Jersey. “I believe this deal we
have with Mr. Jamison is the best one well get,” said council member Yvonne
Knaack, who voted in favour of the deal. “I dont think he would invest his time
and money if he didnt think he would succeed.” Mayor Scruggs, who had once
supported the team in Phoenix, has been vocal against a deal in recent months
and voted against the deal on Tuesday. Sources told ESPN.com earlier on Tuesday
that the financing for a $170 million purchase of the team is in place. The
National Hockey League has owned the franchise since former owner Jerry Moyes
took the team into bankruptcy in 2009. ’ ’ ’
