Aussies in NBA: Surgery complete, masked Bogut appearing soon

Golden State center Andrew Bogut had surgery performed on his broken nose at Stanford earlier today, and things are sounding positive.

The nose injury was sustained from last week's preseason game against the Houston Rockets, while defending a dunk against KJ McDaniels. Thankfully, it sounds like everything went well. Bogut sounds like he is expecting only a few days of rest, before he returns to the court with a protective mask.

Hopefully this mask.

In all seriousness, it will very likely be a clear protective mask, as black carbon fiber masks have been disallowed by the NBA.
