Bogut suffered a broken left leg less than one minute into his team debut and the Cavaliers never recovered in a 106-98 loss to the surging Miami Heat, who defeated the National Basketball Association champions for the second time in three nights.
Then, he cracked his left shin against Okaro White's knee with 11:38 left in the second quarter and landed awkwardly after that.
The seven-footer could not put any weight on his leg as he was helped by new teammates James Jones and Tristan Thompson, who moments earlier had cheered along with fans in Quicken Loans Arena when Bogut checked in for the first time.
Cavaliers star LeBron James said he had guessed the seriousness of the injury after hearing a "crack". Him getting some games under his belt before the playoffs, so hopefully we can hope for the best with the MRI or whatever the case may be, but uh, it's a tough one.
Bogut's injury sent a chill through the Cleveland crowd and seemed to affect the Cavs, who were without an ill coach Tyronn Lue and were out of rhythm even before the big man dropped to the floor clutching his leg in obvious pain. With the loss, the Cavs dropped to 42-19 on the season which is now good for first place in the Eastern Conference standings with a 2 ½ game lead over the second-placed Celtics. Even after the win on Saturday night, the Miami Heat are just ninth in the Eastern Conference, 14 games behind first-place Cleveland.
Moama drowning: Body of five-year-old boy found in the Murray
The Bendigo Magistrate's Court also heard she allegedly told witnesses the night before that she "had to drown my babies". The father of the boys has spoken of his devastation and said he was numb after learning about what had happened.
There was no carry-over - other than the Heat having their way with the Cavs for most of the night. "But the point is to get a win".
On the year, he is averaging a career-low 3.0 points to go with 8.3 rebounds per game.
Perhaps still riled up over his exchange with Smith, Waiters seemed motivated to punish his former team and scored 24 in the first half. You always want to test yourself to see where you're at.
The bulk of Cleveland's points came through James and Kyrie Irving. James sat out the Cavs' previous visit, a 106-90 loss.
