Andrew Bogut leaves game with knee injury, called a sprain with MRI coming Tuesday

OAKLAND — That looks ugly.

Andrew Bogut rotated over and rejected the layup of a driving J.R. Smith, but the collision left him in pain below the basket, grabbing his left knee in obviously tremendous pain. The Warriors went down and had a full possession 4-on-5, the Cavaliers came back and had a full possession, and the Warriors were headed back up the court before coach Steve Kerr stepped in and called a timeout.

Bogut had to be helped off the court straight to the locker room, he could put no pressure on his left leg.

The Warriors are calling it a sprain right now and say an MRI is scheduled for Tuesday. From the replay, it looks to me like a hyperextension, but that’s just speculation.

He’s out for the rest of Game 5, and maybe for the series.
