Warriors center Andrew Bogut left Friday's game against the Lakers in Shanghai, China just three minutes into the first quarter after suffering back spasms and did not return.
He finished with two points and one rebound.

Head coach Mark Jackson spoke about Bogut's condition at the post-game press conference:
There's no concern. He had back spasms and we're just playing it safe. He actually waved me off and wanted to stay in the ball game, but we have plenty of time to make sure he's healthy and whole, and that's important closing out this preseason."
The training staff will monitor Bogut who has experienced similar flare ups several times since coming to Golden State in March 2012, so this is nothing new. Yet it does occur in the midst of his contract extension talks which opened Wednesday.
