Milwaukee Bucks General Manager John Hammond announced the following information on center Andrew Bogut:

"After falling hard to the floor after a dunk in the second period of the Bucks win over Phoenix, Andrew was examined at the Bradley Center by team orthopaedic physician Dr. Michael Gordon and then taken to Aurora Sinai Medical Center by ambulance for more tests.

"Further testing and imaging at Aurora Sinai showed that Andrew sustained a dislocated right elbow, a sprained right wrist and a broken right hand. He was released from the hospital and no timetable has been determined for his return."

In 69 games this season, Bogut is averaging career-highs in points (15.9) and blocked shots (2.5), while adding 10.2 rebounds and 1.8 assists per game. He ranks 2nd in the NBA in blocked shots, 9th in rebounds and 17th in field goal percentage (.520). Bogut's 175 blocked shots to date are the most for any Bucks player since Alton Lister had 177 in 1982-83, giving him the sixth highest single-season total in franchise history. Bogut and Dwight Howard are the only players in the NBA averaging at least 15.0 points, 10.0 rebounds and 2.0 blocks per game.
