Andrew Bogut's Horrifying Arm Injury: Video and Reaction
If you didn't see it, you can view the game highlights of the Bucks vs. Suns here. The highlight package contains the play that resulted in a season ending injury for Bucks center Andrew Bogut.
In the interest of full disclosure, this is a horrifying injury and is difficult to watch.
So where do the Bucks go from here? Kurt Thomas will likely be inserted into the starting lineup, and Scott Skiles may even rotate the 6'10" Ersan Ilyasova to the center position in a small lineup situation.
While Thomas has filled his role quite nicely for the Bucks this season, he simply isn't a player who the Bucks will run the offense through in the high pick and roll. In addition, the Bucks will have to replace about 16 points and 10 rebounds per game...not to mention Bogut's outstanding defensive presence and leadership.
This is a devastating loss for the Bucks, but no one in the organization is throwing in the towel - the playoffs are still on the horizon for the Bucks, and in the midst of adversity, lies opportunity.
Fear the Deer? I sure hope so.
