Bogans returns to practice

Keith Bogans returned to practice Tuesday,after he sprained his right thumb against the Philadelphia 76ers on October,11th.Bogans has been a veteran voice with this team, and on the depth chart Bogans is pretty low right now. I have no problem with Bogans, but I think we all can agree that he's a one year rental, and I think Danny intends on waiving him next summer.With that being said, I think Brooks, Lee, and Crawford will see more time on the floor over Bogans this season. Just from what we've seen so far in the preseason.

"I’m good; I’m cleared to play," said Bogans. "Hopefully, whenever I get back out there I’ll be ready to play. But I feel good. I practiced today for the first time, I feel like I’m good to go."

Bogans said he was uncertain if coach Brad Stevens would toss him right back into the mix for Wednesday's preseason finale against the Brooklyn Nets. But he's happy to simply be available again.

"If you’re a basketball player and you love to compete, you always want to play," said Bogans. "That’s how I’ve been my whole career.... A lot of people say it’s just preseason, but I never looked at preseason like that, I still want to play."
