Bucks: Bogut won't need surgery on injured ankle

Posted Feb 24 2012 7:04PM

MILWAUKEE (AP) -- The Milwaukee Bucks say center Andrew Bogut won't need surgery on his injured left ankle.

Bucks general manager John Hammond says doctors reviewed a CT scan performed on Bogut's ankle Tuesday and agreed his ankle is healing properly. He is still expected to miss 8-12 weeks.

Hammond said Friday that Bogut will be allowed to go to the next stage of his rehabilitation program and have another scan in about a month.

Bogut fractured his ankle Jan. 25 against Houston when his foot landed awkwardly on a Rockets player's foot. In 12 games this season, Bogut averaged 11.3 points, 8.3 rebounds, 2.6 assists, one steal and 2.0 blocked shots in 30 minutes per game.

Bogut was the No. 1 overall pick in the 2005 draft.
