On Monday evening, the Cleveland Cavaliers' newest team member made his official debut on the court at Quicken Loans Arena. Unfortunately for Andrew Bogut and his new team, the former member of the Golden State Warriors suffered a quick injury in just a minute of game action. The big NBA news has the team and fans concerned over Bogut's ability to assist with another run at the NBA title. What's the latest prognosis for Bogut and will he be back in time to help out his new squad with a championship run?

Bogut hurt in debt

The Cavs hosted a home game against the Heat just days after the team recently blew them out in Miami. In the previous game, both Kyrie Irving and LeBron James sat out for rest. New Cavs acquisition Deron Williams was on the court, but Andrew Bogut was not, yet, since his recent signing with the team.

In tonight's game, Bogut stepped on the court in a Cavs uniform for the second quarter.

With 11:38 left to go in the quarter, Bogut's left leg bumped into Heat forward Okaro White's left knee. From there, Bogut had to be helped off the court to the locker room by teammates James Jones and Tristan Thompson.

In other bad news for the Cavs, the Miami Heat also won the game 106-98, dropping Cleveland to 42-20 for the season. LeBron finished with 30 points while Kyrie Irving had 32, but one has to think the injury news was weighing on the players' minds.

What's the prognosis?

As of right now, ESPN is reporting that Andrew Bogut had X-rays done at the arena and was said to have suffered a fractured left tibia. He was being taken to Cleveland Clinic for further examination and evaluation of the injury.

It's unknown how long the Cleveland Cavs' big man will be sidelined for from the latest injury, but the Cavaliers and their fans have to be disappointed.

Expectations were running high after the team announced they would be signing former All-Star Deron Williams and former Golden State Warriors champion Bogut.

Cleveland remains among the top two teams in terms of NBA Championship odds for winners. However, they are still without their All-Star Kevin Love since right before the All-Star break and hoping to have him back in time for their playoff run.

Still, the Boston Celtics remain just a few games behind the Cavs for the top spot in the Eastern Conference with about 20 games or so to go on the regular season schedule.
