Bogut injures back again, out indefinitely
19:32 AEST Sat Feb 23 2013

Australian centre Andrew Bogut's injury-marred NBA season continued on Friday when the Boomers big man was ruled out indefinitely because of back spasms.

Golden State's Bogut was set to take on compatriot Patty Mills when his Warriors hosted the San Antonio Spurs in Oakland.

But Bogut, who has missed 43 of 55 games this season - most due to microfracture surgery on his left ankle - was a late withdrawal.

Golden State coach Mark Jackson said Bogut had an MRI earlier on Friday, but the team failed to release the results of the scan.

Back trouble is nothing new to the No.1 draft pick, who is averaging 7.1 points, 6.5 rebounds, 2.3 assists and 22.5 minutes over his 12 games this season.

Bogut also missed more than half of the 2008-09 NBA season with a stress fracture in his lower back, one game with a mild back strain the following season and five games with a sore back during the 2010-11 season with Milwaukee.

He had been slowly finding his form since returning form the ankle injury on January 28.

Mills had only 10 minutes on the court during Friday's match, which the Warriors won 107-101 in overtime.

Point guard Mills failed to score, with Golden State counterparts Jarrett Jack (30 points and 10 assists) and Stephen Curry (19 points and six assists) starring.

The Warriors hadn't won against San Antonio since another overtime game at home, in January 2008.

Australian Aron Baynes, also on the Spurs' books, was not used in the match.
