Andrew Bogut has agreed to a one-year deal with the Lakers for the veteran's minimum.
As expected, the Lakers keep their financial flexibility for the free agent market in 2018. Bogut is familiar with coach Luke Walton from his Warriors days and should slide in as Brook Lopez's backup, though Ivica Zubac isn't just going to hand him his minutes. He's not a fantasy target after averaging 3.0 points, 8.4 rebounds, 1.9 assists and 1.0 blocks last season. Sep 18 - 11:18 PM

A recent CT scan on Andrew Bogut's tibia shows "complete healing," and a radiology report shows Bogut's leg is "solidly united."

Bogut will return to the United States next week and will likely make his decision on whom to sign with at that point. There are reportedly four teams vying for his services, with the Celtics possibly in the lead.

The Celtics are one of four teams that are reportedly interested in free agent center Andrew Bogut (tibia).

Bogut underwent a bone scan on Tuesday on his fractured left tibia, but we're still waiting on the results. For what it's worth, he was expecting to receive full clearance this week. The Celtics' biggest need is rebounding and rim protection, so it would make a lot of sense for them to use their final roster spot on the 32-year-old veteran.

Andrew Bogut (tibia) will get a final bone scan on Tuesday and expects to be cleared for a full return, according to Adam Himmelsbach of the Boston Globe.

There are reportedly four teams pursuing Bogut, and he hopes to sign a new contract next week. The Celtics had been linked to Bogut earlier this offseason and now have an open roster spot as a result of the Kyrie Irving trade. Bogut makes sense for Boston, as they could use another rebounder and rim protector.

Andrew Bogut's camp had "preliminary contact" with the Celtics this week, according to Adam Himmelsbach of the Boston Globe.

The Celtics now have a roster spot with their Kyrie Irving trade, so they could opt to get some depth behind Al Horford -- they could even use Horford at the four next to Bogut in some matchups. Bogut is targeting the season opener and may be close to full basketball activity, but he won't be playing big minutes on basically any team.
Aug 25 - 3:55 PM

According to ESPN's Marc Stein, teams were notified this week that Andrew Bogut is closing in on a return to full basketball activity.

He's been cleared for running and jumping about four months after fracturing his left tibia. Bogut will be entering his age-33 season and has some durability concerns, so he will likely be looking for a limited role on a contending team. He was a shell of himself last season with averages of 3.0 points, 8.4 rebounds, 1.9 assists and 1.0 blocks, so his days of fantasy relevance are likely over.

The Cavs officially waived Andrew Bogut (tibia) on Monday.

The Cavs needed to open up a roster spot for Larry Sanders, so Bogut was the obvious choice to go given that he's done for the season.
Mar 13 - 4:39 PM

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.
Mar 6 - 8:45 PM

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.
Mar 6 - 11:22 AM

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.
