Milwaukee Bucks guard Malcolm Brogdon has a minor plantar fascia tear in his right foot and will be sidelined indefinitely, the team announced Saturday. Brogdon exited early in the Bucks' 113-98 comeback victory at Miami on Friday, finishing with no points on 0-for-3 shooting in 6:30 of playing time.
The third-year player had an MRI and an examination Saturday by team physician William Raasch in Milwaukee, according to the Bucks. There is no clear timetable for Brogdon's return, but ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski cited sources saying that Brogdon will miss six to eight weeks. The regular season ends in 3 1/2 weeks.
The Eastern Conference-leading Bucks have 13 regular-season games remaining, beginning with a Sunday afternoon game against the visiting Philadelphia 76ers. In 64 games (all starts) this season, the former NBA Rookie of the Year is averaging a career-high 15.6 points to go with 4.5 rebounds and 3.2 assists per game.
Brogdon is shooting 50.5 percent from the field, 42.6 percent from 3-point range and a league-leading 92.8 percent from the free-throw line. A 50/40/90 shooting line has been accomplished only 13 times in NBA history. --Field Level Media
