Andrew Bogut, in his first game with the Cleveland Cavaliers, has suffered an apparent left leg injury.
Twenty-two seconds into the second quarter, Bogut and Miami Heat forward Okaro White collided shins and Bogut stayed out. He moved over to the sideline where the Cavs’ trainers came out and checked out his leg. Then, though, Tristan Thompson and James Jones helped him back to the locker room. During that time, Bogut did not appear to put any weight on his leg. Cavs GM David Griffin also went back to the locker room when Bogut went down.
Here’s a video of the injury from Rob Perez of Fox Sports:

Bogut played a total of two minutes before the injury. Earlier this season with the Dallas Mavericks, he suffered from leg and hamstring issues. Last season with the Golden State Warriors, he suffered a knee injury in Game 5 of the NBA Finals that knocked him out for the series. He also missed most of the 2011-12 season with a knee injury.
We’ll have more on Bogut’s injury as information becomes available.
Update - 8 p.m.
Per the Cavs’ broadcast, Bogut is undergoing further testing and the team will update his status after the game.
