Cavaliers centre Andrew Bogut will miss the remainder of the National Basketball Association season, including playoffs, with a broken leg.
Entering Thursday night's action, the Cavaliers have 20 games remaining in the regular season and are now 2.5 games ahead of the Boston Celtics for the top record in the Eastern Conference.

Of course, that moment took place in Game 5 of the 2007 Eastern Conference Finals - when the four-time MVP scored 29 of Cleveland's final 30 points, including their final 25, going 11-for-13 from the floor.
LeBron will match up primarily against Marcus Morris, who's notched double-figures in 14 of his previous 15 games - including a 36-point outing at Minnesota and a 37-point outburst against the Blazers. Cleveland shooting guard J.R. Smith returned to practice on Wednesday for the first time since fracturing his thumb on December 20 and is questionable to play against Detroit.
The Cavaliers have announced the Australian centre's broken left leg has been set and he has begun a rehabilitation program that rules him out for the season but is expected to have him back on the court for next season's training camp. Cavs GM David Griffin, who has overhauled Cleveland's roster with the additions of Derrick Williams, Kyle Korver, and Deron Williams, will likely add yet another big man.
