Milwaukee Bucks center Andrew Bogut will be sidelined at least one week after suffering an ankle injury last night against the Houston Rockets according to the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel.
“It wasn’t good,” Bogut said. “I knew when I came down I was in some trouble. Keeping optimistic, everything’s fine with the X-ray, but that’s to be expected. I know I didn’t break a bone.”
The injury occurred when Bogut went up to try to block a shot by Rockets guard Kyle Lowry and came down on Lowry’s foot. Bogust twisted his left ankle and limped off the court with the help of Bucks trainer. According to team trainers, the best-case scenario would be a severely sprained ankle, which would likely to sideline Bogut for a week or more.
The Bucks (7-10) rallied without Bogut to win its third straight road game, defeating the Rockets, 105-99. Thus far this season, Bogut averaged 11.3 points per game, 8.3 rebounds, and 2 blocks.
