Report: Andrew Bogut to miss 2 weeks with knee injury
The Dallas Mavericks will have another player added to their injury list.
Already missing the services of Dirk Nowitzki, J.J. Barea, and Seth Curry, it was recently reported that their starting center, Andrew Bogut, will likely miss the next two weeks after suffering a knee bruise.
ESPN sources say Mavericks center Andrew Bogut has been diagnosed with a minor bone bruise in his right knee and could be back in two weeks.

This is definitely a huge blow to the Mavs who are already struggling to win games and are currently ranked dead last in the Western Conference with a 4-16 record.
Bogut is averaging 3.8 points, 10.3 rebounds, 2.2 assists, and 0.9 blocks per game this year and has been the inside presence Dallas has been relying on heavily to change shots and patrol the paint.
Without the 7-foot Australian international, Dwight Powell is expected to see a big increase in his playing time as he tries to fill in the void left by Bogut.
