Andrew Bogut just can't escape the dark, ominous cloud that has followed him the last two seasons.
After suffering serious wrist and elbow injuries two seasons ago that required surgery, Bogut was never 100 percent healthy last season and struggled.
This season, Bogut has had more issues. First, he missed four games because of an unspecified family matter in Australia. Now, he is sidelined with concussion-like symptoms.
Milwaukee Bucks officials said Bogut hit the back of his head on the court after taking a charge in the second half of Thursday's game against the Pistons at the Bradley Center. Bogut then took a league-required concussion test Friday and failed it.
As such, Bogut sat out the Bucks-Mavericks' game Friday night -- which the Bucks lost 102-76 -- at Dallas. His status for Monday afternoon's game in Philadelphia is uncertain.
Bogut is averaging 13.5 points and 9.2 rebounds a game. The Bucks are 0-5 this season without Bogut.
Veteran Drew Gooden, a natural power forward, has replaced Bogut in the starting lineup.
