Bucks center Andrew Bogut is expected to miss "a few more games" while he tends to a private matter that has nothing to do with his own health, according to a statement released Thursday by his agent, David Bauman.
"It is important to note that this is not related to Andrew's personal health in any way," Bauman said in a statement released to CBSSports.com. "Andrew appreciates the support of the Bucks, his teammates and his fans, and he expects to be back after a few more games' absence fully prepared to play the game that he loves and 100 percent ready to help the Bucks win games."
Bogut is in his native Australia taking care of what has been described as a personal family matter. Given the distance, the earliest he could possibly return would appear to be Sunday's game in Phoenix. After that, the Bucks return home for games Tuesday against the Spurs and Thursday against the Pistons.
"In the interests of the situation, he asks that his privacy be respected," Bauman said.
The Bucks are off to a 2-3 start with Bogut averaging 14.3 points and 10 rebounds in the four games he's played.
