Aussies in NBA: Bogut ready to go for season opener

Good news, Warriors and Aussie fans. Andrew Bogut has recovered from his broken nose and is ready to get back to being the starting center of the defending champs.

Bogut suffered the break in a preseason game against the Rockets, causing him to miss the Warriors' last three preseason games. Bogey's no stranger to broken noses though; apparently this was his fourth experience of it.

His game seems to have not suffered for it, with interim coach Luke Walton saying that Bogey "looked fine" in practice. As a precautionary measure, he will wear a protective mask for the first few weeks of the season. It might not last long however.

"If I miss my first couple shots, it might go flying," Bogut joked.

The Warriors don't have any significant injuries, and expect to have their full starting lineup ready to go for the season opener against the New Orleans Pelicans.
