Bogut was in Australia dealing with a personal matter, which reports claimed related to family, and as a result, he missed four consecutive games for the Bucks, the side dropping all four of them.
"Obviously, it was a tough road trip for the guys," Bogut told ESPN upon arriving back in the US. "I appreciate everyone else giving me my personal space," he said. "It's a tough personal issue."
Bogut scored 14 points and reeled in 11 boards in the side’s tough-fought win over the Spurs, bringing them to a 3-6 record after their 2-1 start.
They currently sit second-last in the Central Division and the road ahead does not get any easier for the Bucks. Although games against Detroit and Denver are obviously very winnable, they look ahead to games against Miami, Dallas, Philadelphia, Atlanta and New York just around the corner.
With their superstar centre back on the court and fighting fit however, the side will be looking to get back into the winners circle.
