Keith Bogans Out For Season

Keith Bogans has suffered a fractured left ankle and a complete tear of his deltoid ligament, the Nets announced today (Twitter link). Bogans, who was injured in last night's game against the Pistons, will undergo surgery on Monday, and figures to be out for the rest of the season.

Bogans signed with the Nets just over a week ago to help provide depth to a backcourt that was without MarShon Brooks and DeShawn Stevenson. The 31-year-old averaged over 18 minutes in his five games with the Nets, scoring a total of 21 points on 38.1% shooting.

New Jersey has been decimated by injuries this season, as big men Brook Lopez and Mehmet Okur have also missing significant time. With Brooks still out until at least Sunday, the Nets could look to add players on 10-day contracts to fill out their rotation while they wait for their players to get healthy.
