08:06 AM ET 11.28 | The mere word "microfracture" can unnerve, but Golden State fans are urged not to believe the worst. As it turns out, Warriors center Andrew Bogut did have microfracture surgery on his left ankle in April. But, according to team sources, it's not the same as the alarming procedure we learned about through the likes of Penny Hardaway, Chris Webber and Greg Oden. Well, it's the same surgery. Just not the same situation. "Some people go in for microfracture surgery. This wasn't that," one source said. ... Bogut, on the other hand, went in to get his left ankle cleaned out of scar tissue and bone fragments. When Dr. Richard Ferkel was inside, he noticed a "minor" cartilage issue and he addressed it with a form of microfracture surgery.
