by September 22, 2009

The Bucks are looking to ease the big fella back into things, as he recovers from an ailing back: ”It remains unclear how much Bogut will be able to participate in the training camp that will open next Tuesday at the team’s practice facility. The ultimate goal is to have him ready for the regular-season opener in Philadelphia on Oct. 30 … Bucks coach Scott Skiles believes that Bogut will be ready for the start of the regular season. ‘He’s on his way to 100%, trying to get there,’ said Skiles. ‘We’re trying to be smart about it. We don’t want to do anything at this time of year where we’re putting too many stresses on him, where he has some kind of setback.'”
