Bogut's Cavaliers debut ends in disaster

BASKETBALL: Andrew Bogut has left the court in agony just moments into his debut with the Cleveland Cavaliers, after joining the NBL team as a free agent.

Bogut entered the Cavs' game against Miami and went down with an injury to his left leg. He was defending Heat forward Okaro White, whose leg collided with Bogut as he attempted to dribble around the 32-year-old Aussie.

Bogut was taken from the court to the locker room, having played just 58 seconds.

The Australian centre had already registered two fouls before leaving the court. After an injury-prone career, the Cavaliers will hope Bogut is not out of action long-term, having been signed to bolster their looming playoffs campaign.
