Andrew Bogut suffered what looked like a pretty gruesome knee injury during the Warriors’ Game 5 loss on Monday night and while the injury reportedly wont’t require surgery, the recovery time will knock him out for the remainder of the Finals.
The injury could also knock him out of the 2016 Olympics.
NBA.com’s David Aldridge had the news first and the Warriors PR confirmed:
Hearing Andrew Bogut will not require surgery, but projected recovery time will take him out for rest of Finals.

"I've been in this position before. Be aggressive, especially on the boards & in the paint. We win that way," GS C Festus Ezeli w/Bogut out.
