Bogut's constant back flairs have kept him out of a number of games between November and early January. His play has been inspired when he gets on the court, but it's hard to tell how many games he will be able to play over the course of the rest of the season. What do you think? Is his drop to #23 justified?
I did a brief Q&A with Tim over at the excellent Spurs blog 48 Minutes of Hell. Click the link above for a discussion of Redd's trade value, the Ridnour/Sessions debate, and the future of Charlie V.
I feel really good. It’s a good situation for me. With Coach Skiles system, he puts me in the position to be a playmaker and to score. That’s what I was looking for in a team and it’s something that I didn’t get in the past years. Coach Skiles put a lot of trust in me in order to make plays.Charlie Villanueva, as told to SLAM's Matt Caputo
Andrew Bogut stays on his grind. Moved up 3 spots on this Top 25 Under 25 list even with injuries keeping him out of late November games. Ramon Sessions makes an appearance, too. At #24.
BDL's J.E. Skeets has video and reaction to the Saturday dust-up between Andrew Bogut and Kevin Garnett, which has now earned KG a one game suspension. Bogut's technical foul was also upgraded to a flagrant one, which isn't unreasonable. I do think there was some intent on Bogut's part to flail a bit more than usual, but it would have also been harsh to suspend him for something so marginal.
There's apparently good news on the injury front: Michael Redd's right ankle injury is being categorized as minor. Yahoo! reports that the Bucks expect both Redd and Luke Ridnour back in the lineup on Wednesday against Washington.
Andrew Bogut may not be thriving under Scott Skiles yet. But he did he get some love in this ranking of the best NBA players under 25.
Bulls-Centric look at the season opener, with comments on offensives tendencies of Skiles.
