Bogut out indefinitely with fractured ankle
Milwaukee Bucks center Andrew Bogut will be sidelined indefinitely with a fractured left ankle.
Bogut was injured in Wednesday’s game against Houston when he landed on the foot of Rockets guard Kyle Lowry.
The 7-foot Australian underwent an MRI exam on Thursday that revealed the injury.
“It’s a very unfortunate injury for Andrew,” said Bucks general manager John Hammond. “Obviously we’ve been in this position before. Other people will have to step up.”
Bogut has battled injuries the past two seasons, most notably from a fall toward the end of the 2009-10 season in which he hurt his right hand and elbow in a hard fall to the floor.
The former No. 1 overall pick in 2005, Bogut is averaging 11.3 points, 8.3 rebounds and 2.0 blocked shots.
