Early in the third quarter of Game 5 of the NBA Finals, Andrew Bogut fell awkwardly on his leg while defending a J.R. Smith shot in the paint, and he ended up writhing on the ground afterward with an injury. You can watch the scary play here.
Initially, Bogut was diagnosed with a sprained knee, and MRI results were supposed to give the Warriors more clarity on his condition as well as a timetable for his return.
Bogut traveled with the team to Cleveland, but his status for Game 6 is yet to be revealed. The Warriors have received the medical data on Bogut, but they're still in the processing of reviewing it, per ESPN's Marc Stein. Stein stated that an official announcement is expected some time later today.
In the 2016 playoffs, Bogut is averaging 16.6 minutes while putting up 4.6 points, 5.7 rebounds, and 1.6 blocks on the scoresheet per game. His presence protecting the rim has been his biggest contribution to Golden State in the Finals so far.
