The player will likely be out for the rest of the season, as the need for surgery is highly likely.

He fell after getting a pass from teammate Carlos Delfino and dunking the ball. He hit the court super hard after the dunk, and immediately yelped in pain after landing badly. It was a brutal injury, and it was immediately evident that is was going to be a nasty injury.
He was taken by ambulance to Aurora Sinai Medical Center for an evaluation, and the liklihood of surgery is pretty great, according to reports. Bogut was drafted to the Bucks in 2005, and was selected first overall in that year's draft. He is 7 feet tall, and from Australia.
