The Cleveland Cavaliers announced Wednesday that center Andrew Bogut won't need surgery to repair his fractured left tibia. He's still going to miss the rest of the 2016-17 campaign, including the playoffs.

The team's official release noted Bogut is undergoing a "non-surgical treatment and recovery plan" that should make him available in time for next season's training camp.

According to Dave McMenamin of ESPN, the Cavs will waive Bogut to free up a roster spot. 

Cleveland signed the 32-year-old veteran post player on March 2 to bolster its frontcourt rotation for its upcoming title defense.

Bogut was just one minute into his Cavs career when the injury occurred. McMenamin passed along comments from LeBron James, who stated he heard the bone break during a collision, about the immediate setback.

"It's very deflating ... a tough moment," James said. "We all were excited about the acquisition and bringing him in here. We can hope for the best ... but it's a tough one not only for him, first of all, but for our ballclub."

Bogut joined Cleveland after getting waived by the Philadelphia 76ers less than a week after they acquired him from the Dallas Mavericks as part of the package for Nerlens Noel. He'd previously spent time with the Milwaukee Bucks before being traded to the Golden State Warriors, with whom he won a title in 2015.

The Australian big man was slated to provide the Cavaliers with experienced depth behind Tristan Thompson and Kevin Love, who's working to return from injury before the playoffs.

It's unclear whether the Cleveland front office plans to search for another veteran to fill the void or stick with its current group. Derrick Williams and Channing Frye are the other options on the active roster.

Meanwhile, Spotrac notes Bogut had signed a one-year deal at the veteran's minimum. So his Cavaliers career could already be over before it really started unless he's re-signed.
