Andrew Bogut Out 8-To-12 Weeks With Ankle Fracture

Bucks GM John Hammond gave an update on the status of center Andrew Bogut on Friday. Bogut suffered a fracture to his left ankle on Wednesday night in Houston when we was attempting to block a shot and landed on another player's foot during the first quarter of the game.

"This morning in Milwaukee, Andrew had additional diagnostic tests performed on his left ankle. The results of the testing confirmed a left ankle fracture which will keep Bogut sidelined for a period of 8-to-12 weeks," Hammond announced on Friday.

Brew Hoop expects Drew Gooden to move into the starting spot in place of Bogut with Jon Leuer and Larry Sanders picking up more minutes.

Bogut was averaging 11.3 points and 8.3 rebounds per game in about 30 minutes of play through 12 games. This is another unfortunate setback for the Aussie big who was just coming back into form after suffering a bad elbow injury in April 2010.

Eight weeks would have Bogut back in late March while a 12-week recovery would put him out until the last week of the regular season. Video of the play is posted after the jump.
