Bogut gets the flick from Cavaliers

IT appears the Cleveland Cavaliers will be moving on from Andrew Bogut after less than one minute of playing time.

The Cavs announced Wednesday that the veteran centre will miss the rest of the season and playoffs due to his fractured left tibia. According to ESPN, the team plans to waive Bogut to free up a roster spot.

Bogut reportedly plans to return to his native Australia to undergo rehabilitation, opting not to have surgery.

The Cavaliers indicated Bogut would not have to undergo surgery and should be fit before the 2017/18 NBA season begins in October.

"Andrew Bogut underwent additional imaging and evaluation at the Cleveland Clinic yesterday related to his fractured left tibia," the club said in a statement.

"His tibia has been set and he is undergoing a non-surgical treatment and recovery plan commencing immediately with an extended period of immobilisation and healing stimulation.

"He will not be available to play the remainder of the regular season and playoffs but is expected to successfully complete his recovery process in advance of training camp for the 2017-18 NBA season."
