Bucks Malcolm Brogdon out for weeks after injury in right foot
MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) – Milwaukee Bucks guard Malcolm Brogdon is out indefinitely after an injury in his right foot. Brogdon underwent an MRI and exam on Saturday which revealed a minor plantar fascia tear.
According to the Bucks, Brogdon will be listed as out and his status will be updated as appropriate.
In 64 starts for the Bucks this season, Brogdon is averaging a career-high 15.6 points, 4.5 rebounds and 3.2 assists in 28.6 minutes per game, while shooting career bests in field goal percentage (.505) and 3-point percentage (.426). He is also shooting an NBA-high 92.8 percent from the free throw line, making him the only player in the NBA shooting better than 50.0 percent from the field, 40.0 percent from three-point distance and 90.0 percent from the foul line. A 50/40/90 season has only been done 13 times in NBA history.
According to ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski, Brogdon is expected to miss six to eight weeks. That would mean he would miss at least the start of the NBA playoffs.
