OAKLAND, Calif. Mike Wagner Jersey . - Golden State Warriors centre Andrew Bogut has a fractured right rib that could keep him out for the start of the playoffs — and possibly all of the post-season. The team said Wednesday night that an X-ray revealed the injury. Warriors coach Mark Jackson and Bogut both said hes out indefinitely and gave no timetable for his return. Speaking in a sombre tone in his corner of the locker room, though, Bogut said he has done enough research and spoken to enough doctors that he will not come back until the rib heals. "Ive got to be careful, because if it cracks Im looking at a punctured lung. Youll see me in the hospital with a tube coming out of me," Bogut said. "Its one of those things people have played through, but this is too close to comfort for me." Bogut said he first felt the injury when Denvers Kenneth Faried elbowed him in a loss to the Nuggets last Thursday. The symptoms continued against the Los Angeles Lakers on Friday, he said, and he took a pain-killing injection before playing at Portland on Sunday night. Bogut left the overtime loss to the Trail Blazers in the fourth quarter after getting sandwiched by two players. He said he cant take deep breaths and is pain anytime he coughs or sneezes — let alone tries to run. "It definitely wasnt as bad until I fully cracked it," Bogut said. "I thought I was winded for a second, but it wasnt going away. I ended up going back in the game for the last possession (of regulation). I dont know how." Backup centre Jermaine ONeal was starting in Boguts place Monday night against Minnesota. Jackson also said he also could slide power forward David Lee to centre if needed depending on the matchup in the playoffs. Last years backup centre, Festus Ezeli, has been out all season recovering from right knee surgery and remains day to day. Jackson also indicated that reserve centres Hilton Armstrong and Ognjez Kuzmic are likely not options. "It certainly does not make us a better basketball team," Jackson said of Boguts absence. Golden States centre is hardly the only one ailing at the worst time of the season. Starting small forward Andre Iguodala sat out Monday night with right knee tendinitis that he has said is something he will have to deal with for the rest of the season. Lee is playing with a nerve injury in his right hamstring/back right and ONeal has been coping with pain in his wrist and knees. Harrison Barnes started for Iguodala against the Timberwolves. The Warriors visit Denver in their regular-season finale Wednesday night before the playoffs begin Saturday or Sunday. Ryan Shazier Jersey . -- Arizona coach Sean Miller rose from his seat every time Roberto Nelson touched the ball and yelled "Shooter!" He could have been talking about his own team, too. Le Veon Bell Jersey .Leicester won 25-21 in a heated European Rugby Champions Cup group match on Sunday.Toulon said on its website on Wednesday that it decided to open an investigation after Leicester complained about the behaviour of prop Martin Castrogiovanni and fullback Delon Armitage. http://www.footballsteelerstore.us/Black-Friday-James-Harrison-Jersey/ . - Doug Kalitta led Top Fuel qualifying Friday in the NHRA Nationals at Maple Grove Raceway with a 3.(SportsNetwork.com) - Amid a slightly higher-profile arrival this weekend at Soldier Field - in the form of Tampa Bay coach Lovie Smith visiting his former Chicago home for the first time since he was fired two years ago - theres also one Josh McCown. McCown appeared in 11 games and started seven times across three seasons (two under Smith) with the Bears before heading to Buccaneers on a two-year, $10 million contract after Chicago displayed its allegiance to Jay Cutler in the form of a seven-year, $126.7 million deal. His first three games with his new team yielded three losses and a thumb injury that subsequently kept him out of action for six weeks, but McCown returned to his starters role in Week 10 and has since thrown for 589 yards and four touchdowns against just two interceptions. He finally earned win No. 1 for the Bucs last week, throwing for 288 yards and a pair of scores in a 27-7 road defeat of Washington that ended a five-game losing skid. The momentum comes just in time for what he concedes will be an unusual experience this week. It will be neat, weird, all those things. Im sure for Coach Smith its the same thing, McCown said. But for us, weve got to win ball games, it doesnt matter who we play. His return has coincided with the emergence of first-round draft pick Mike Evans, whos caught seven passes in three straight games for 458 yards and five touchdowns. The Texas A&M product accounted for 209 receiving yards against the Redskins, making him the first rookie with a 200-yard game and two scores since Anquan Boldin did it 11 years ago. The defense did its part in Washington as well, registering three takeaways and six sacks while yielding its lowest opposition point total of 2014. Tampa Bay had averaged 30.2 points allowed through its initial nine games while accounting for only 12 turnovers and 14 sacks. Hopefully we can build on this and see where we go from there, Smith said. As it turns out, the tumult-wracked Bears could use a little building of their own. Lest he be reminded that Smith was 18 games over .500, reached the playoffs three times and appeared in a Super Bowl once during his tenure in Chicago, second-year coach Marc Trestman is enduring daily questions about why his star-studded team isnt performing anywhere near expectations. Trestman was 8-8 in his first go-round last year, following Smiths dismissal after he went 10-6 in 2012 and failed to reach the playoffs. And several of his holdover players are still fans of their old boss. (Smith) was the type of guy that you really wanted to run through a wall for, Bears linebacker Lance Briggs said. And you didnt want to see him go. Inconveniently, Chicagos offense is more than six points a game off of the NFC-best 27.8-point clip it posted under Trestman laast season, and his defense had allowed 50 points in two straight games before a circle-the-wagons 21-13 defeat of Minnesota in Week 11 ended a three-game losing streak. Jerome Bettis Jersey. Chicago allowed 243 total yards, but the Vikings were just 30th in the league in total offense coming in. Smiths defenses for the Bears averaged better than two takeaways per game, permitted less than 20 points and only surrendered 40 or more four times. Chicago has allowed 40 points six times under Trestman and defensive coordinator Mel Tucker, while surrendering 29.5 points per game overall. Were going to talk to our team truthfully about every aspect of this game, Trestman said. The thing I can tell you about Lovie is that Ive watched him for years and played against him for years and I know him as a person and I have tremendous respect for him as a person in all areas. Thats the only thing I can speak of at this point, and I truly mean that. As for offense, Cutler is expecting his former boss to supply a new defensive wrinkle or two. The QB passed for 330 yards and three TDs against Minnesota, but he was intercepted twice and has six INTs in his last four games. Running back Matt Forte had 117 rushing yards against the Vikings and is third in the league with 1,308 total yards. Its going to be challenging, Cutler said. We are going to be familiar with their defense, theyve got some really good players on that side of the ball. WHAT TO WATCH FOR Rookie on Rookie First-year man Evans comes into the game for the Bucs full of pass-catching momentum. Hes scored seven touchdowns since missing Week 5 with an injury and uses his 6-foot-5, 231-pound frame with surprising speed and agility. Hell be the focal point of rookie corner Kyle Fuller, picked seven slots after him in April, whos 6-foot, 190 pounds and will need to create disruption at the line of scrimmage. Facing an Old Friend On the flip side, Chicagos Brandon Marshall comes in after his own seven- catch, two-touchdown performance against Minnesota and will presumably be matched with veteran Alterraun Verner, whos been inconsistent in his first year with Tampa Bay. Marshall could have a big day if Smith employs soft coverages with Verner, especially if the receiver can escape initial contact and extend plays. OVERALL ANALYSIS If it were solely a match on paper, the Bears would win easily. Of course, if theyd all been solely matches on paper, the Bears would probably be 8-2 instead of 4-6. Expect Tampa Bay to be plenty revved-up for its popular new coach and for Smith to confound Cutler with a look or two, but in the end the advantages in personnel still reside with the hosts in Chicago. If he loses this one, Trestmans done.
