After fouling out of Sunday's bronze-medal game vs. Spain, Andrew Bogut lashed out at FIBA's referees.
"[Spanish players] fall over and get fouls and go to the free throw line the whole game. It's unbelievable," he said. "Questionable calls all game. That's FIBA basketball. Wouldn't expect anything less from the refs." Bogut's lamentations aren't likely to make any impact on FIBA or its referees, especially since Australia and Spain were both called for 22 personal fouls during Sunday's game. Aug 21 - 8:14 PM

Andrew Bogut fouled out of Sunday's Bronze medal game, finishing with two points, five rebounds, three assists and one block in 14 minutes.

He fouled out in the third quarter which was huge down the stretch because they lost by just one point. Bogut looked healthy this summer and is projected to be the starting center in Dallas, but he's still not a great fantasy target due to a lengthy injury history and the fact that his minutes will likely be capped in the mid-20s.

Andrew Bogut was ineffective in Team Australia's loss to Serbia on Friday night.

Bogut was minus-20 in the 22 minutes he played versus Serbia in the Olympic semifinals. He scored a total of four points and grabbed just one rebound in his 22 minutes of action. Nonetheless, Bogut has played well at times during the Aussie's run in Rio. Most importantly, Bogut showed he was healthy after an injury knocked him out of the NBA Finals back in June. Bogut will be an intriguing late-round flier in deep leagues next season (especially those that start multiple centers), as he has limited competition for minutes in Dallas.

Andrew Bogut did a little bit of everything for Team Australia during Wednesday morning's 90-64 thrashing of Team Lithuania, tallying 10 points, seven boards, six assists and one turnover in 20 minutes.

Bogut can be a sneaky late-round producer with his ability to bring a bit of everything to the box score, but health is obviously a constant issue for the oft-injured big man. Rick Carlisle does tend to maximize the potential of his players, and Bogut should fit in nicely in his system, but the well documented health woes make Bogut worth little more than a late-round gamble on draft day.
Aug 17 - 12:05 PM

Andrew Bogut finished Sunday's 81-56 win vs. Venezuela with 10 points on 5-of-6 shooting, six rebounds, two assists and one steal in just 18 minutes.

Bogut has been remarkably efficient during the Olympics, shooting 24-of-29 from the field (82.8 percent), though he's been battling a left knee injury and was rested vs. China on Friday. The Mavericks don't have much depth at center, with only Salah Mejri and second-round pick A.J. Hammons backing up Bogut, so his health will be paramount for Dallas this season.

Andrew Bogut made it clear that his Australian team wants to win the gold medal at the Olympics.

"No disrespect to the U.S., but we don’t want to go into an Olympics aiming for second, or fourth," he said. "We should go in with the mindset that we’re going to be first and they beat you, they beat you. But we’re not disrespecting anybody by saying that. We have a goal of being first. We have a goal of trying to be there in the end. What’s the point of playing otherwise? We have that mindset from the start, guys were saying let’s get a medal and we said as a group, ‘No, let’s get a gold and we’ll live with what we get after that, if we don’t get it.’ "

Andrew Bogut has soreness in his left knee.

Trainers were working on his left knee during Wednesday's game against the United States, so this isn't a surprising update here. Bogut has looked terrific in the Olympics, but it's certainly easier on him with smaller bodies out there and not as many games. At worst, he should be ready to go for the quarterfinals next week.
Aug 12 - 3:47 PM

Andrew Bogut is getting the day off vs. China on Friday.

It's just a day of rest for the veteran in a game that the Aussies should be able to handle without him. Expect Bogut to be back on Sunday vs. Venezuela.

Andrew Bogut wasn't satisfied with Australia's close lose against Team USA on Wednesday.

Bogut had a solid game with 15 points, one rebound, three assists, three blocks, and one steal in 26 minutes, but the Aussies were unable to pull of the upset against Team USA. "We’re disappointed. We had every opportunity to try and push that game," he said. "We still lost the game, it doesn’t mean anything. There’s no small victories — it’s either winning or losing, and tonight we lost. We’ve got some stuff to work on and we’ll go and do that." Bogut said his bruised knee isn't an issue and is poised to finish the Olympics strong.
Aug 11 - 12:08 PM

Andrew Bogut made 7-of-9 shots to finish Wednesday's tough loss to the U.S. with 15 points, one rebound, three assists, three blocks and one steal in 26 minutes.

Bogut has been excellent in the preliminary round of the Olympics, playing brick-wall defense while shooting a combined 19-of-23 from the field in three games. Trainers attended to Bogut's knee during the game, but that's likely just a precaution -- he moved without obvious discomfort, and said recently that if his knee were a significant problem he'd be on "a flight back home." So far, so good for the Mavs' oft-injured center.
Aug 10 - 8:15 PM

Andrew Bogut said that he's had no issues with his bruised left knee during the Olympics.

"If it wasn’t right, I’d put my hand up and I’m on a flight back home. It was good enough to play," Bogut said, adding that Cuban "has been great. We have a great relationship via email and via text. The whole thing was, if you feel like you’re 100 percent, and you feel like your knee is a go, we’re going to support you." Health is always a concern for Bogut, and while he's looked great so far for Team Australia, he'll be a risky guy to target in standard leagues.
Aug 10 - 10:33 AM

Andrew Bogut scored nine points with 12 rebounds, six assists and three blocks in 25 minutes against Serbia on Monday.

He's looked like he's found the Fountain of Youth in Rio, but it helps to not go against NBA players every game. Bogut's durability will be a concern for him at age 31, so it'll be tough to draft him with his concerns on free throw shooting.
Aug 8 - 3:31 PM

Mark Cuban said he supports Andrew Bogut's decision to play in the Olympics.

"We obviously were nervous and I'm still not a fan of NBA players in the Olympics, but Andrew was going to have to go through a process to get back on the court anyway," Cuban said. "Our staff has communicated with him and we knew he would be cautious in his approach to returning." The good news is that Bogut looked healthy on Saturday, scoring 18 points with four rebounds, five assists and a block. He's going to be the starting center for the Mavs, but don't be surprised if his new team limits the 31-year-old center's minutes just like the Warriors did.

Andrew Bogut (knee) looked healthy in his first game at the Olympics, going off for 18 points, four rebounds, five assists and a block on 9-of-10 shooting in an 87-66 win over France.

Bogut wasn't even sure if he'd be able to play this summer due to the knee injury he suffered in June, but he was quite productive in just 22.5 minutes of action. The Mavericks will be relying on Bogut heavily once the NBA regular season begins, but Dallas will have to manage the big man in order to ensure he makes it through the campaign (mostly) unscathed.
Aug 6 - 3:06 PM

Dallas coach Rick Carlisle is excited to work with Andrew Bogut.

"You know, it gives us not only a legitimate starting center, but it gives us one of the best centers in the game," Carlisle said of the acquisition of Bogut. "I’m looking forward to getting to know Andrew." Bogut will obviously be the starter, but the Mavs would be wise to limit his workload given his injury history. The Mavs also have a lot of incentive to give Salah Mejri and A.J. Hammons minutes, while Dwight Powell could spend some time at the five as well. Bogut won't be a great option in fantasy leagues.
