MILWAUKEE — Andrew Bogut finally is back healthy. If he can stay that way, the Milwaukee Bucks believe he'll play a leading role in their return to contention this season.
Bogut's right arm was twisted grotesquely in a hard fall to the floor in April 2010, leaving him with a broken hand, dislocated elbow and sprained wrist. In the wake of the injury, the No. 1 pick in the 2005 draft never was quite right last season. Bone fragments floating in his elbow would hit nerves and cause his arm to go dead at times.
With Bogut back healthy, and the addition of Stephen Jackson, the Bucks are hoping to make a push for the playoffs. They open the season Monday at Charlotte.
