Devastating news; it appears Andrew Bogut is done for the season. From NBA.com:
Not that they needed any, but there is more bad news for Andrew Bogut and Bucks fans after the 7-footer’s latest injury brush.
Bogut suffered a left ankle fracture in Wednesday’s game against Houston and is out indefinitely, per Charles F. Gardner of the Journal Sentinel.
Bogut left the game in the first quarter and did not return. Bogut has played all 82 games of the regular season just once during six seasons in the league, his rookie season, after being chose with the No. 1 overall pick by the Bucks in the 2005 draft.
Gardner reported that Bogut had a bad feeling about the injury after the game:
“It wasn’t good,” Bogut said. “I knew when I came down I was in some trouble. Keeping optimistic, everything’s fine with the X-ray, but that’s to be expected. I know I didn’t break a bone.
“But tomorrow’s the day of reckoning where I go under the MRI machine and find out my fate. I’m not optimistic. With my history of unlucky injuries I’m hoping this one can do me a favor and (go away). Most of my injuries are unfortunate things and this goes in the same boat as that. It’s frustrating.”
This is no doubt a huge blow for AB, so I am sure I speak for all of us in wishing him a speedy recovery.
