Just as Bogut has the minutes restrictions designed to protect his surgically repaired left ankle lifted, the Aussie center has suffered another injury and will be sidelined indefinitely. Bogut began experiencing back spasms, a painful symptom that is generally linked to a more serious structural problem. An MRI revealed a partially bulging disc in his back, which is both good and bad news. The good news lies in the fact that the disc has not completely herniated and can be treated in a non-surgical manner. Rehab exercises designed to strength the back extensor muscles, as well as the abdominals, can help correct the issue. Unfortunately, this takes time and patience has run understandably thin for Bogut owners. The situation gets even murkier when you factor in Bogut's injury-riddled past. He missed 43 total games in the 2008-2009 season managing a stress fracture in his lower back and has missed six other games with back-related issues in the seasons since.
