Andrew Bogut Broke His Tibia After Playing One Minute for the Cavaliers

The seven-footer could not put any weight on his leg as he was helped by new teammates James Jones and Tristan Thompson, who moments earlier had cheered along with fans in Quicken Loans Arena when Bogut checked in for the first time.

Andrew Bogut has had a horror start at Cleveland Cavaliers after he broke his leg just 58 seconds into his debut for the National Basketball Association champions.

Bogut spent a grand total of 58 seconds on the court for the Cavs, before a collision with Okaro White of the Miami Heat sent Bogut hopping away in visible agony. The 7-foot center entered the team's March 6 game against the Miami Heat at the end of the first quarter, but after less than a minute of play, he had to be carted off the court due to a leg injury.

He appeared to tell Cavs staff on the sidelines that he believed his leg was broken.

"Initial x-rays and evaluation. revealed a fractured left tibia", a team statement said.

Bogut joins the Cavaliers after spending the last four seasons with the Golden State Warriors.

Bogut's season with the Cavaliers could now threaten to be over as soon as it started.

Bogut officially signed with the Cavaliers this week after he was traded by the Mavericks and bought out by the Sixers at the trade deadline.

'It was a tough decision, ' Bogut said. "It came down to two teams, Boston and Cleveland, and I chose to go with Cleveland, obviously".

Superstar team-mate LeBron James said he didn't need the confirmation.

"It was a tough decision, in a way, because of the history but I can't control it". As seen in the video below, Bogut was injured while trying to play on defense as the Cavs took on the Heat in Cleveland.

"I'm not quite sure yet whether I'll use him or not".
