NOT FOR THE FAINT HEARTED
Bogut's horrific injury could not have come at a worse time for the Milwaukee Bucks. With only 13 games remaining in the regular season, the Bucks were eyeing off a playoff spot. They would have been one very tough 1st round opponent. Now they will only make up the numbers, that's if they can keep their spot.
I don't know if you have seen the fall, but it is sickening. I have seen it a couple of times now. On the fall Bogut discolated his right elbow, broke his right hand and sprained his right wrist. He was having one of his best seasons to date. In 69 games this season, Bogut is averaging career-highs in points (15.9) and blocked shots (2.5), while adding 10.2 rebounds and 1.8 assists per game. He ranks second in the NBA in blocked shots, ninth in rebounds and 17th in field goal percentage (.520).
Not only is this bad for the end of his NBA season.The freak injury has sent Australia's chances to take home a much needed medal at the World Championships into tatters. The World Championships are in August, Bogut will miss all preparation time and was already struggling with a back injury. Australian Basketball needed success in the World Champs. It was a chance to grab some exposure after the Socceroos finished their World Cup campaign. Who knows what is in store now for the Boomers?
