Injury: MRI shows Andrew Bogut has a left ankle fracture

Milwaukee Bucks General Manager John Hammond announced the following information on the injury to Andrew Bogut (7-0, 260):

“Andrew returned to Milwaukee this morning to be evaluated by Bucks orthopaedic physician Michael Gordon, M.D., and to undergo a magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) exam on his left ankle.   The results of the MRI identified a left ankle fracture which will keep Bogut out indefinitely.”

The seventh-year center was injured in last night’s win at Houston when his left foot landed awkwardly on a Rockets player’s foot after attempting to block a shot in the first period.  Playing in his 400th career NBA game last night, Bogut left the contest with three points, four rebounds and three blocked shots.  In 12 games this season, Bogut averaged 11.3 points, a team-high 8.3 rebounds, 2.6 assists, 1.0 steal and a team-high 2.0 blocked shots (T-7th in NBA) in 30.0 minutes per contest.
