Andrew Bogut (fractured left tibia) has officially been ruled out for the remainder of the regular season and the playoffs.

Bogut will opt for nonsurgical treatment, but this injury doesn't have much impact in fantasy hoops considering Bogut was only able to play a total of 58 seconds for the Cavs this season. Leave him on the wire.
Mar 8 - 12:47 PM

Andrew Bogut reportedly suffered a fractured left tibia on Monday vs. the Heat.

Initial X-rays confirmed the diagnosis, but Bogut is on the way to the hospital "for further imaging and evaluation." He lasted just two minutes in his debut and this could be the end of his season. The Cavaliers will likely provide an update after the game, but with Bogut out, Tristan Thompson's role of 30+ minutes is safe.

Andrew Bogut has suffered a left leg injury and will not return on Monday night.

He is getting an X-ray today and could get further evaluation. Bogut could not put weight on his leg as he went to the locker room and the team calling it a "left leg" injury is a little odd. He lasted just one minute before his injury on his new team. We should have an update post game.
Mar 6 - 8:02 PM

Andrew Bogut suffered a left leg injury in the second quarter and went to the locker room.

It didn't look good. He closed out on Okaro White and had some contact to his lower leg. Bogut did not put weight on his leg as he went to the locker room and needed Tristan Thompson and James Jones to help him off the court. We'll have an update shortly.
Mar 6 - 7:40 PM

Andrew Bogut's visa issues have been resolved and he'll be available to play Monday vs. the Heat.

Head coach Tyronn Lue is sick and will not be coaching Monday's game, so lead assistant Larry Drew will be the man making the calls for Cleveland tonight. Drew said that he wasn't sure how much he'd use Bogut, if at all, so there's no reason to deploy Bogut in any setting tonight.
Mar 6 - 5:13 PM

Andrew Bogut was not at Monday's morning shootaround.

He's still expected to be available to play against the Heat, but he wasn't at shootaround due to "immigration issues." Bogut will provide some depth behind Tristan Thompson, but we're not excited about his outlook on the defending champs. Minutes in the teens is probably what he's looking at in Cleveland.

Cavs sign C Andrew Bogut.

It's official and Bogut will be available on Monday. The Cavs basically only had one center on their roster with Tristan Thompson, but they've had success going small throughout the season. Bogut is likely going to only pick up minutes in the 12-15 range, which could take away from Channing Frye, Richard Jefferson and Derrick Williams.
Mar 2 - 2:57 PM

Andrew Bogut has officially cleared waivers, and he's expected to sign with the Cavs.

Bogut has already made a verbal commitment to Cleveland, so now it's just a matter of him signing the dotted line. He might not be making his Cavs' debut until Monday, but he won't have a large enough role in Cleveland for his playing status to matter in most leagues.
Mar 1 - 5:32 PM

The Vertical is reporting that Andrew Bogut has committed to sign with the Cavaliers and is expected to sign with Cleveland this weekend.

Bogut was reportedly also considering Houston and Boston but decided to join the Cavs. Cleveland already had impressive depth, but adding two quality veterans in Deron Williams and Andrew Bogut this week fortified an already loaded roster. Bogut's fantasy value is limited in Cleveland, as he'll likely see less than 20 minutes a night backing up Tristan Thompson. The Cavs will want to keep Bogut fresh for the playoffs, so they will do their best to limit his playing time over the final six weeks of the regular season. He can be left on the waiver wire in standard leagues.
Feb 28 - 7:47 PM

The Celtics are one of the five or six teams Andrew Bogut will consider signing with after he clears waivers on Wednesday, according to the Boston Globe.

Adam Himmelsbach of the Globe writes that "reports stating Bogut has decided to sign with the Cavaliers after he clears waivers on Wednesday are inaccurate, and that the Celtics are very much in contention." Bogut has purportedly already spoken with Danny Ainge and will talk with coach Brad Stevens on Tuesday. The Celtics have solid depth but a lack of rebounding has been a weakness all season. Bogut will likely see only limited minutes off the bench in the regular season no matter where he lands, so he can be left on the wire.
Feb 28 - 10:57 AM

Andrew Bogut has reportedly reached a buyout agreement with the 76ers.

The Cavs are rumored to be the frontrunners to land Bogut, but the Spurs, Rockets, Celtics and Jazz have also been mentioned as teams that will pursue Bogut's services. He won't have any fantasy value with any of those teams, so he's safe to leave on the waiver wire just about everywhere.
Feb 27 - 5:19 PM

Andrew Bogut is expected to join the Cavs once he's bought out from his contract in Philly, according to sources of Tim MacMahon of ESPN.

Bogut would play limited minutes behind Tristan Thompson in Cleveland, so that would not be an ideal spot for him in terms of fantasy value. He can be left on the waiver wire in most leagues.
Feb 26 - 3:17 PM

There are reportedly five teams interested in Andrew Bogut once he reaches a buyout agreement in Philly.

Bogut is fully expected to join a contender and has been linked to the Cavaliers, Spurs, Rockets, Celtics and Jazz. None of these teams are great landing spots for Bogut in terms of fantasy value, so there's no real reason to stash him right now. He's likely looking at a backup center role with minutes in the teens or low 20s on most of these teams. Bogut averaged 3.0 points, 8.3 rebounds, 1.9 assists and 1.0 block for the Mavs this season.
Feb 26 - 9:36 AM

Andrew Bogut will not be with Sixers for at least a week while dealing with personal issues.

There are no further details as to the nature of the issues. However, this does not preclude the Sixers from buying out Bogut's contract, which would enable him to sign with a contender. The Warriors, Cavs and Rockets are reportedly the teams that will be competing for Bogut's services.
