Bucks' Bogut hospitalized with elbow injury

Bucks' Bogut hospitalized with elbow injury

Milwaukee Bucks center Andrew Bogut was hospitalized with a right elbow injury after falling hard to the floor and awkwardly twisting his arm against the Phoenix Suns on Saturday.
With the Bucks leading late in the second quarter, Bogut took a long outlet pass in for a fast break slam dunk. He hung on the rim afterward, was touched in the back by the Suns' Amare Stoudemire and crashed to the court. Bogut appeared to wrench his elbow on the way down, then hit his head.
A flagrant foul was called on Stoudemire, and he was booed loudly by Bucks fans, but television replays showed what appeared to be relatively light contact with Bogut.
Bogut appeared to be in serious pain, briefly writhing on the floor before being helped to his feet by the team's medical staff. Hunched over and clutching his arm, he ran down the tunnel toward the locker room.
Bogut, the No. 1 overall pick in the 2005 draft, is having a standout season for the resurgent Bucks, averaging a team-high 15.9 points and 10.3 rebounds.
Bogut has shown ability on both ends of the court since he entered the league, but nagging injuries have hindered his development. The Australian star played only 36 games last season because of a back injury.
