Summer of rehab for Andrew BogutPosted by Inside Hoops
The Journal Times reports:
Bucks center Andrew Bogut met with the media after Friday’s practice and discussed his recent season-ending hand and wrist injuries.
Bogut, who suffered extensive damage after crashing to the floor after a dunk attempt in a game against the Phoenix Suns on April 3 at the Bradley Center, won’t be picking up a basketball anytime soon.
“It’s going to be a long summer rehabbing,’’ Bogut said. “It’ll be a three-to-four month rehab.’’
Considering the severity of the injuries — Bogut has large cast on his right arm — Bogut won’t be able to play for Australia in this summer’s FIBA World Championship in Turkey. The 24-team tournament runs from Aug. 28 until Sept. 12.
Bogut wouldn’t comment on his status for the World Games. An official announcement is expected to be made in the next three weeks.
