Bogut's arthrosopic ankle surgery a success

Aussie big man Andrew Bogut underwent successful arthroscopic surgery on his left ankle over the weekend, it was announced by the Golden State Warriors.

Bogut is expected to be sidelined for an additional three months and is expected to be ready for the start of training camp in October.

Bogut tweeted following the surgery:

The surgery, performed by Dr. Richard Ferkel in Van Nuys, cleaned out loose particles and bone spurs.

Bogut sustained the injury on 25 January, after landing on an opponents foot after attempted a shot block. The injury will see the superstar centre sidelined for the 2012 London Olympic games.

Bogut appeared in 12 games before suffering the season-ending injury, averaging 11.3 points, 8.3 rebounds and 2.0 blocks.

Bogut was the last of a trio of Warriors to go under the knife this past week.

Stephen Curry underwent successful right ankle surgery on Wednesday. David Lee had a successful surgery on Thursday to repair torn abdominal and  abductor muscles. Both should be ready for the start of training camp as well.
