Milwaukee Bucks’ Andrew Bogut to miss 8-12 weeks
Milwaukee – The Milwaukee Bucks will have to figure out a way to win without their starting center. The fractured left ankle Andrew Bogut suffered against the Houston Rockets Wednesday night will force him to miss 8-12 weeks.
The Bucks players have sat out a combined 42 games due to injuries this season and just when they finally looked like they were healthy, their top rebounder and shot blocker goes down.
Bogut has only played in 12 of Milwaukee’s 18 games this season but in that time he averaged 11.3 points, 8.3 rebounds, 2.6 assists, 1.0 steal and 2.0 blocks per game. He has incurred several injuries over the past few years to the point where it is unknown if he will ever play another full season without getting hurt.
The Bucks are 6-3 this season when Bogut scores 10 points or more and 1-8 when he either scores less than 10 points or does not play in the game. The one win when Bogut scored less than 10 points came against the Rockets when he had to leave the game after fracturing his ankle.
Milwaukee is looking to rebound against the Los Angeles Lakers tonight at the Bradley Center.
