It's been a busy summer for Andrew Bogut, who is now playing for the Australian national team at the Olympics after completing a move to the Dallas Mavericks.
Bogut's new boss in Dallas - Mark Cuban - has normally been in staunch opposition of NBA players competing in the games but the Mavericks owner has given his approval for the big center to take part.
While Bogut did suffer a bad knee injury during the NBA Finals a few months ago, Cuban is willing the big man to go as far as he can.
"We obviously were nervous and I'm still not a fan of NBA players in the Olympics, but Andrew was going to have to go through a process to get back on the court anyway," Cuban said, according to the Associated Press, via CBS Sports.
"Our staff has communicated with him and we knew he would be cautious in his approach to returning."
Bogut is being smart, though, stating that he won't overdo it.
"They were very, very nervous obviously because my prognosis was six to eight weeks and this is right on six weeks right now, but I was open with them and honest," Bogut said.
"I said, 'Look, if I know I'm not ready and the knee's swelling up, I'm pulling the pin.' And they said fine, we trust you."
Bogut netted 18 points for the Aussies in the opening game of the tournament as they beat France 87-66 on Saturday. They won again on Monday, winning out 95-80 over Serbia.
