According to the Melbourne, Australia (Associated Press), The Australian coach has included Bogut on Team Australia’s roster for the Olympics but has to prove he is healthy.
Bogut has until the night before games start to prove to the coach that he has recovered from the bone bruise around his left knee. This injury seemed serious as it cost Bogut the chance to finish the rest of the NBA Finals. Based on how injury prone he is, it would make sense for Bogut to simply sit out of the Olympics and let his body fully recover. If the big man is cleared to play, it looks certain that he will represent his country. The Mavericks should be a bit nervous right now.
