Bogut Done for the Year

According to the Bucks’ Facebook page:

General Manager John Hammond announced today that center Andrew Bogut will miss the remaining four games of the regular season due to right elbow pain.

Bogut will undergo arthroscopic surgery to remove loose particles and scar tissue in his elbow in the near future.

In 65 games this season (all starts) Bogut averaged 12.8 points, a career-high 11.1 rebounds and a league-leading and career-best 2.6 blocks per game.

Amazingly enough, Bogut had career-high marks in rebounds and blocks while playing with one fully functional arm.  If he can make even incremental progress following surgery this summer, the Bucks stand to reap huge benefits.  While his elbow didn’t damper his defense and rebounding, his offense suffered as a result of his right-handed options being limited — including his FT attempts.

On a more positive note, Ersan Ilyasova is expected to return tonight vs. the Pistons.
