Bogut leaves Bucks for personal reasons
Tuesday, January 3, 2012
SALT LAKE CITY (AP) -- Andrew Bogut left the Milwaukee Bucks for undisclosed personal reasons and missed Tuesday night's game against the Utah Jazz.
His last entry on his personal Twitter feed -- "On to the next one. No road win is easy.... Flying to Utah shortly" -- was posted shortly after the Bucks lost to Denver, 91-86 Monday night. However, he was not with the team for shootaround earlier Tuesday.
Bogut, who is averaging 14.3 points and 10.0 rebounds after elbow surgery ended last season, was replaced in the starting lineup by Drew Gooden.
Mike Dunleavy, who missed the loss to the Nuggets with flu-like symptoms, was also not with the team due to groin pain. Carlos Delfino took Dunleavy's starting spot.
Reserve guard Beno Udrih has been dealing with a left shoulder sprain and also did not dress for the game against the Jazz.
