MILWAUKEE -- Bucks center Andrew Bogut left the court in the third quarter during a team scrimmage Saturday after banging his leg into Steve Blake's knee.

Bogut, who did not return to the game, was diagnosed with a contusion on his lower left leg.

Bucks coach Terry Stotts said Bogut, the first pick in the 2005 draft, was "going to be all right" and is listed as day-to-day.

"Whenever someone comes out of the game, you always want to make sure he's all right," Stotts said.

General manager Larry Harris told the crowd of about 5,000 before the scrimmage that the 2006-07 Bucks were the best team in his four years. He said the team's goal is to fight for home-court advantage in the first round of the playoffs.

The Bucks finished in the eighth seed last season and lost to Detroit in the first round of the playoffs.

"We expect that the people here today will be in the building with us in April in the playoffs," he said. "We expect nothing less."
