Bucks’ Malcolm Brogdon Out Indefinitely

The Bucks may have to go through the stretch run without Malcolm Brogdon, who is out indefinitely with a minor plantar fascia tear in his right foot, tweets Shams Charania of The Athletic. Brogdon will likely be sidelined six to eight weeks, sources tell ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski (Twitter link).

The team confirmed the injury on its website, noting that Brogdon had an MRI and a medical exam today that revealed the tear. The Bucks said his status “will be updated as appropriate.”

Brogdon played just seven minutes Friday night before being pulled from the game because of a sore heel. He has been battling plantar fasciitis recently and had to miss a game earlier this month.

The injury robs Milwaukee of a key starter with the playoffs less than a month away. The former Rookie of the Year is putting up career-best numbers in his third NBA season, averaging 15.6 points, 4.5 rebounds and 3.2 assists per night through 64 games. He’s leading the league in free throw percentage at 92.8% and is on pace for the 14th 50/40/90 season in NBA history.

    If he comes back it won’t be until end of April or early May . That’s usually a 6-8 week recovery. Wow..huge blow

      It’s also a very painful injury. 6-8 weeks is just so he can run again. A full recovery is usually 6 months.

    MIL 2G PERs: Brogdon 18, Snell 11, Connaughton 13, SterlingBrown 10, Divencenzo 9… Middleton 16, Hill 10.

    Decent depth; some call Middleton a guard anyway. Since Bledsoe doesn’t need much help in the backcourt, replacing Brogdon with Mirotic (16PER) would not be that surprising. Seems like Giannis could cover 3s.
    I am surprised KM has overall only the 6th-best stats on the Bucks after the trade!

      My man Pat Connaughton w a strong 13 PER. I was always upset he was included in the deal for RHJ on draft night. The Nets could have used him and he’s a prototypical Net w the 3pt marksmanship.

          The average is set to about 15 but 13 is good for a nonstarter. And he’s young so that could go up, and has. On the other hand, the Bucks may be so smooth right now that everyone’s numbers have been raised by the system!

  3. Tough break for Milwaukee, but on the bright side for Brogdon, he sealed up a 50-40-90 season.

  4. That makes Bucks less clear favorites in the ECF vs Sixers, that is the only bright side, right?
