    MILWAUKEE (Ticker) -- Center Andrew Bogut and forward Charlie
    Villanueva will miss the remainder of the season due to
    injuries, the Milwaukee Bucks announced on Wednesday.

    The announcement was made during the second quarter of
    Wednesday's game against the Los Angeles Clippers.

    Sidelined due to left midfoot sprain, Bogut missed a game for
    the first time in his young career. The top overall pick in
    2005, Bogut suffered the injury against the Los Angeles Lakers
    on March 7, and re-injured it in practice on Tuesday.

    Bogut will have his foot immobilized for two to four weeks, and
    is expected to resume basketball activity in six to eight weeks.

    A native of Australia, Bogut averaged 12.3 points and a
    team-leading 8.9 rebounds in 66 games this season.

    Villanueva is out due to a recurring right shoulder injury that
    will require arthroscopic surgery. The second-year forward had
    missed the previous two games due to the injury.

    Acquired from Toronto in an offseason trade that included T.J.
    Ford, Villanueva has appeared in just 39 games this season. He
    was averaging 11.8 points and 5.8 rebounds.

    Following Wednesday night's game with the Clippers, the Bucks
    have 15 games remaining.


  2. Gawd dang that sucks. But it really doesn't matter anyway. Memphis isn't a playoff team.

    I wish them luck with their injuries, and hopefully they both can return strong for their teams next season..As long as they don't get in the Lakers way lol.
