In an interview with Australian sports network Ten, available here (but not in the US), Bogut revealed that fluid buildup in the elbow could keep him out for the first month of the NBA season: “‘I’m optimistic that I should be ready for the season but you never know with these things because of the nerve damage and so on, it’s on its own course,’ he said. ‘I’m one of those guys who will play through injury but if I’m not 100% for the season to start, there is no sense going into an NBA season at 85% ’cause we’re playing up to May.’”
