Andrew Bogut returning tonight?

There's a chance that Golden State will have its 7-foot Australian center back in the lineup tonight.

Andrew Bogut participated in shootaround and is a game-time decision for Monday night vs. Toronto, according to this tweet by Rusty Simmons of the San Francisco Chronicle.

The timing of this is interesting for the Warriors, considering their current three-game slide and the surprising reality -- at least thus far -- that they are a better team without Bogut in the lineup.

Golden State is battling for one of the final three spots in the Western Conference playoffs. At 33-27, the Warriors currently are the No. 6 seed but only by the slimmest of margins. Houston and Utah are both just a half-game back, while the charging Los Angeles Lakers are only 3 games behind.
