Recovered Bogut to play Monday

MILWAUKEE -- Milwaukee Bucks coach Scott Skiles says center Andrew Bogut will return to the court for Monday night's game against the Chicago Bulls.

Skiles says Bogut's left leg began feeling better late last week, and Skiles plans to ease him back into the rotation. Bogut was kicked in the leg during a Nov. 18 game against New Jersey and originally was expected to miss two to four weeks.

Bogut says he's "pretty much" pain-free and eager to return to help the Bucks, who have lost four straight games.
