CLEVELAND — Golden State center Andrew Bogut will need six to eight weeks to recover from a left knee injury, ruling him out for the remainder of the NBA Finals and almost certainly affecting his Olympic plans as well.
The Warriors are calling it an “impaction injury” that resulted in serious bone bruises. Bogut will not need surgery, the team said.
Bogut was hurt Sunday night about 90 seconds into the third quarter when he blocked a shot by the Cleveland Cavaliers’ J.R. Smith, then landed awkwardly.
“It’s bad news for our team,” coach Steve Kerr said.
