Bucks’ Bogut has hand surgery
The team announced Monday evening that Bogut had successful surgery on his right hand earlier in the day. He broke it Saturday against Phoenix. He also sprained his wrist and dislocated his elbow.
The team says Bogut will need up to six weeks to recover from the surgery before he can fully engage in rehab. The surgery was performed by Dr. Michael Gordon and Dr. Curt Crimmins at the Orthopaedic Hospital of Wisconsin.
Bogut has been a major contributor in the Bucks’ surprising season and his teammates vow to continue their playoff push without him.
Milwaukee, sixth in the Eastern Conference, can clinch a playoff berth with a win tonight at Chicago.
