MILWAUKEE (AP) — Injuries are thinning the Milwaukee Bucks’ frontcourt as they begin a Western Conference road trip.
The team says forward Mirza Teletovic is expected to miss four weeks following arthroscopic surgery on Tuesday (Wednesday, PHL time) to repair cartilage in his left knee. He has missed the last six games.
The 6'9" Teletovic is a key player off the bench for Milwaukee. He is averaging 7.1 points in 10 games this season, shooting 46 percent from three-point range.
The Bucks also say starting center John Henson will miss Wednesday night’s (Thursday, PHL time) game in Phoenix after what they call a “successful eye procedure.”
Henson is expected to rejoin the Bucks before Saturday’s (Sunday, PHL time) game at Utah. He is averaging 6.7 points and 6.6 rebounds.
Guard Matthew Dellavedova also remains out with left knee tendinitis.
