Kings Rally Past Bucks To Give Smart Win In Debut

Andrew Bogut was out for the Milwaukee Bucks against the Sacramento Kings, missing his second straight game because of undisclosed personal reasons.

The team confirmed before Thursday night’s game at Sacramento that Bogut is still dealing with a personal matter. It’s unclear when he’ll return. The 7-foot Australian center was again replaced in the starting lineup by Drew Gooden.

Bogut is averaging 14.3 points and 10 rebounds after elbow surgery late last season. He was a surprise scratch moments before Milwaukee’s 85-73 loss at Utah on Tuesday night.

Mike Dunleavy Jr. is recovering from a groin injury and not with the team, and forward Luc Mbah a Moute is out indefinitely with right knee tendinitis.
