MILWAUKEE (AP) -- Milwaukee Bucks center Andrew Bogut has been helped off the court after falling hard to the floor and awkwardly twisting his right elbow Saturday night against the Phoenix Suns.
With the Bucks leading 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. He appeared to wrench his elbow and hit his head hard on the court. A flagrant foul was called on Stoudemire, but television replays showed what appeared to be relatively light contact with Bogut.
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.
