Turn your attention up from Andrew Bogut’s ringed middle finger to his head.

Monte Poole of CSN Bay Area:

Warriors center Andrew Bogut, who left in the third quarter of a 111-95 win over New Orleans on Tuesday night after sustaining a laceration to his head, has been diagnosed with a concussion, the team announced Wednesday afternoon.

Festus Ezeli stands to start if Bogut misses games, and this could be a big opportunity for Ezeli.

Golden State two more full games (at Rockets and at Hornets) and a partial on deadline day (vs. Grizzlies) while he’s eligible for a contract extension. He played well in the opener (13 points, four rebounds, a steal and a block in 17 minutes), and quality production as a starter could improve his bargaining power.
