The rumors were true. Andrew Bogut has a stress fracture in his back and will miss at least 8 weeks.
If you're looking for a small silver lining, here's one. You can't really be a major player in the NBA without a legitimate star player. The Bucks have a good supporting cast and solid 2nd tier stars with Redd and Bogut. Due to their market size, they are unlikely to attract top free agents. Their only hope of landing a big star is in the draft lottery.
This will almost certainly make them a lottery team, and quite possibly a high lottery team, and therefore there is some chance that they will land a 1st tier star to go with their solid base. This has happened before with the small(ish) market San Antonio Spurs, who lost David Robinson for a year and managed to land Tim Duncan in the draft.
So, there's that.
