Golden State Warriors center Andrew Bogut will miss the rest of the NBA Finals due bone bruises in his left knee, the team announced Wednesday.

Bogut left the Warriors’ Game 5 loss in the third quarter with a sprained knee after colliding with Cavaliers guard J.R. Smith. Boguts’s MRI results were expected on Monday night, but were delayed until later Wednesday.

The MRI revealed that Bogut will not need surgery, but will be out six to eight weeks. He is expected to make a full recovery.

Bogut has averaged 4.6 points, 1.6 blocks and 5.7 rebounds in this year’s playoffs.
