The Associated Press is reporting that Milwaukee Bucks center Andrew Bogut underwent successful on Monday afternoon to repair his injured right hand. Bogut injured his hand, wrist, and elbow on the same gruesome fall during a game against the Phoenix Suns on Saturday.
Bogut is expected to begin rehab in six weeks, which makes the chances he’ll play before next season extremely slim. Fortunately, the surgery appears to have went well, and Bogut was tweeting about
soccer star Lionel Messi earlier in the day. Hopefully Bogut can make a full recovery and pick up where he left off when he does get back on the court.
Somebody is in midseason form.
Stephen Curry put up 30 on Portland in a preseason game Thursday night, hitting six threes and getting to the line 15 times over the course of his less than 26 minutes. It was quite a show.
Portland won the game 118-101 behind 25 points from Allen Crabbe and 22 from Damian Lillard. Not a lot of defense in this one but it was fun to watch.
If you believe there is a difference between being dunked on and being dunked around, this definitely falls in the latter category.
Still, it’s an impressive move by Toronto’s Anthony Bennett to make the move and dunk around Lakers’ big man Robert Upshaw during the Raptors’ 105-97 preseason win over the Lakers Thursday night.
Bennett only had four points, but Kyle Lowry had another impressive preseason outing with 25. He has looked sharp. Julius Randle had 17 for the Lakers on 7-of-10 shooting.
