Andrew Bogut was back with the Milwaukee Bucks on Tuesday after a four-game absence due to a family-related issue in his native Australia.

Bogut did not want to discuss the issue in detail but said it involved illness.

"It's a personal issue with family," Bogut said. "It's something that doesn't happen to most regular people. When it does, you have to address it. Hopefully everyone will get well from it.

"I appreciate the team - Senator (Herb) Kohl and John Hammond - letting me go out there (to Australia) and do that. I appreciate everyone else giving me my personal space. It's a pretty tough personal issue.
