Milwaukee, WI (Sports Network) - Milwaukee Bucks center Andrew Bogut is healing appropriately from a fractured left ankle and surgery is not planned at this time, the team announced Friday.

Bogut had a CT scan performed on the ankle on Tuesday. After reviewing the results, Bucks orthopaedic surgeon Dr. Michael Gordon and other foot and ankle specialists agreed that the seventh-year center will be allowed to progress to the next stage of his rehabilitation program.

An additional scan on the ankle, which was injured in a January 25 win against the Rockets, will be performed in approximately one month. The initial recovery timetable of 8-to-12 weeks has not changed.

Bogut is averaging 11.3 points per game and 8.3 rebounds in just 12 games so far this year. In addition to the ankle injury, he missed four games due to personal reasons and sat out one other contest with a concussion.

For his career, the first-overall pick of the 2005 NBA draft averages 12.7 points per game to go along with 9.3 rebounds and 2.3 assists.
