The Warriors attempted to clear the air on the simmering topic of Andrew Bogut's troubled left ankle Wednesday. After a San Francisco Chronicle story implied the center had grown frustrated by the organization's handling of his return, Bogut and general manager Bob Myers jointly briefed the media to let it be known that everyone is on the same page and there are no hard feelings. "We're square, and I hope he feels the same way. I think he does," Myers said of Bogut. "We've always been square, and I would be concerned if that wasn't the case." Sitting next to Myers after practice, Bogut supported the Warriors' company line. "As far as the reports, there was never any pressure from the organization," he said. "The pressure was from was me, myself. After the big trade, I wanted to be out there to help my team and play basketball games, so the pressure never came from anybody -- Bob or Coach (Mark Jackson) or the owners. It was pressure strictly put on me by myself." Moreover, Myers said there was no intent to deceive regarding the extent of Bogut's April surgery, which the player and the club made known Tuesday involved a more serious microfracture procedure.
