Eric Bledsoe Out Two Weeks With Fibula Avulsion Fracture

A right fibula avulsion fracture will sideline Bucks guard Eric Bledsoe for at least two weeks, according to Ben Steele of The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel. The team announced the injury after last night’s game.

Bledsoe was hurt during the third quarter Friday in a collision with teammate Wesley Matthews. Bledsoe underwent an MRI Saturday in Milwaukee and was examined by the team doctor.

He is averaging 15.0 points, 4.9 rebounds and 5.7 assists for the Bucks, who have begun the season at a sizzling 24-3 pace. He had started all 26 games before last night.

In Bledsoe’s absence, Donte DiVincenzo moved into the starting lineup, just as he did when Khris Middleton missed seven games with a left thigh bruise.

“We got to wish Bled a fast recovery,” Giannis Antetokounmpo said. “Come back healthy and this team is going to be exactly how it is now when he gets back. “We did it (when) Khris missed a lot of games. We were able to win games without him. We got to to it without Bled. If I ever miss games, they got to do it without me. We built a winning culture around the team and everybody knows what they got to do when we step on the floor.”

    Tough loss with DAL and LAL coming up but neither team has great backcourt assuming Doncic misses the game as well.

      Unfortunately for the bucks, the team isn’t just competing against the Lakers backcourt. This is more pronounced considering the Lakers have Lebron and AD and the team as a whole is great on both ends.

        I am looking forward to the Giannis-Lopez-Middleton vs James-Davis-Howard.

    I think the Bucks will be just fine based on how well Hill has been playing this season

    • Buckman

      Given that they are 24-3, the Bucks are probably 17-0 for lots of different combinations of variables. Having said that The Big Ragu is playing good ball this year. Connaughton will also have to play more minuutes.

    Cue the “Milwaukee should have kept Brogdon because of this” nonsense.

    I wonder if anyone dares to criticize Giannis after he scored 48 points in a loss. Any time it happens to Harden he gets crucified by the media.
