Aussies in NBA: Bogut to undergo surgery, estimated return by season opener

Following his nose injury against the Houston Rockets earlier this week, Andrew Bogut has been sidelined indefinitely. Monte Poole of CSN Bay Area updated earlier today, that the Warriors have confirmed Bogut's nose surgery for Monday.

Bogut was unable to breathe out of his right nostril after the injury. The surgery will fix this issue by resetting his nose, but will likely require the use of a mask as a precautionary measure afterwards. This is not Bogut's first brush with a broken nose; the center commented on it being his fourth experience.

“It is what it is,” Bogut said. “I’m just more pissed off because I got called for the foul, because I didn’t touch him at all. My nose hit his fist, and I got called for a foul. No date has been set for his return as yet, but a successful surgery will very likely see him return by, or even before the season opener.
