Donte DiVincenzo Undergoes Left Ankle Surgery

The Bucks have announced (via Twitter) that starting shooting guard Donte DiVincenzo underwent successful left ankle surgery for a torn ligament today in Wisconsin.

DiVincenzo suffered the season-ending ailment during the third game of the Bucks’ first-round playoff series sweep of the Heat. The Bucks are missing his offense thus far in their second-round matchup with the Nets. The team has been outscored by 47 points across its two losses in Brooklyn.

The third-year swingman out of Villanova had been enjoying his best season as a pro prior to the injury, his first as a full-time starter. For the 2020/21 regular season, he averaged 10.4 PPG, 5.8 RPG, 3.1 APG, and 1.1 SPG across 66 games with Milwaukee, with shooting percentages of .420/.379/.718.

The Bucks have the ability to extend DiVincenzo during the summer, ahead of the last year of his rookie deal in 2021/22.
