Boomers centre Andrew Bogut is in doubt for the London Olympics despite being on track in his recovery from an ankle injury.
Bogut, who was recently traded by the Milwaukee Bucks to the Golden State Warriors, has a fractured left ankle and has ruled out a return in the current NBA season.
The seven-foot centre represented Australia at the 2004 and 2008 Olympics but is unsure if he will add to his Games record.
“I wanted to play this (NBA) season, and following that up with missing the Olympics would be really tough,” Bogut told the San Francisco Chronicle.
“It’s one of the greatest things you can be involved with in our sport, but I’ve got to think about this franchise (Golden State) and what they’ve invested in me.“I’ve got to treat the Olympics with the respect it deserves and be fair to the fans in Australia. But if I’m not 110 per cent, I’m not going to play.”
