Brogdon out indefinitely with plantar fascia tear in right foot

MILWAUKEE | Milwaukee Bucks guard Malcolm Brogdon has a minor plantar fascia tear in his right foot. The injury was discovered Saturday when he underwent an MRI.

The Bucks did not announce a timetable for his return but, according to ESPN, Brogdon is expected to miss six to eight weeks.

This is a big loss for the Bucks. Brogdon has been one of the most consistent pieces on this team. He is averaging a career-high 15.6 points in 64 starts this season. He is also shooting 50.5% from the field, 42.6% from beyond the arc and 92.8% from the foul line. There have been only 13 50/40/90 seasons in NBA history.

Bucks lose Malcolm Brogdon for 6-to-8 weeks

Milwaukee is getting forward Jabari Parker back just as its losing guard Malcolm Brogdon.

The Bucks announced Friday that Brogdon suffered a partially torn quadriceps tendon in the loss at Minnesota Thursday night and would be out 6-to-8 weeks. The injury comes on the heels of guard Eric Bledsoe missing the matchup with the Timberwolves because of an ankle injury.

The 2017 NBA Rookie of the Year, Brogdon was averaging 13.3 points, 3.3 rebounds and 3.2 assists for Milwaukee this season.

His absence likely means a further increase in minutes for rookie Sterling Brown and veteran Matthew Dellavedova in the team’s backcourt.

Milwaukee had been looking forward to getting its entire preferred rotation on the floor together for the first time in several years with Parker’s return from a torn ACL planned for Friday night against the New York Knicks. That plan will apparently have to wait another month and a half or so.

Bucks fire Kidd, defeat Suns 109-105

Monday was an interesting day for the Milwaukee Bucks as it started with the franchise relieving Jason Kidd of his duties as head coach. Later Monday night the Bucks snapped a short two game losing skid with a 109-105 win over the Phoenix Suns.

Forward Khris Middleton had 35 points on the evening. His effort was aided by guard Malcolm Brogdon who finished with a career-high 32 points in his return from a one game absence. Brogdon missed Milwaukee’s loss to Philadelphia on Saturday night while he was handling a personal matter.

The Bucks trailed Phoenix 79-76 to start the fourth quarter but outscored the Suns 33-26 in the game’s final period. Middleton and Brogdon combined for 23 of Milwaukee’s 33 points. Middleton made all four shots he attempted in the quarter.

Phoenix was led by forward TJ Warren in scoring with 23 points. Center Greg Monroe had 19 points and seven rebounds in his return to Milwaukee after being traded from the Bucks to the Suns earlier in the season.

Milwaukee All-Star forward Giannis Antetokounmpo missed his second consecutive game with a sore right knee. He is expected to return on Friday night when the Bucks host the Brooklyn Nets.

Giannis Antetokounmpo to miss pair of games

The Milwaukee Bucks have announced that All-Star forward Giannis Antetokounmpo will miss the next two games with right knee soreness. Those two games come on Saturday night in Philadelphia and Monday night at home against the Phoenix Suns.

Milwaukee will also be missing guard Malcolm Brogdon Saturday night in Philadelphia. He’s away from the team dealing with a personal matter. Brogdon is expected to be back in the lineup Monday night according to Milwaukee head coach Jason Kidd.

Guard Tony Snell and forward Thon Maker are expected to start in place of Brogdon and Antetokounmpo on Saturday night in Philadelphia.

Antetokounmpo did also miss the December 23 game against Charlotte with soreness in his right knee. Milwaukee lost that game 111-106 despite a 31 points from forward Khris Middleton.

Antetokounmpo is expected to return to action on Friday, January 26, when the Brooklyn Nets visit Milwaukee.

On the season Antetokounmpo is averaging 28.2 points, 10.1 rebounds, and 4.6 assists per game. He was named to his second consecutive All-Star team earlier this week by the NBA.

Bucks officially acquire the draft rights to Sterling Brown

The Milwaukee Bucks have officially acquired the draft rights to Sterling Brown from the Philadelphia 76ers for cash. The trade was reported the night of the NBA draft, but wasn’t made official by the league until this afternoon. Brown was selected 46th overall by the 76ers in the second round of this years NBA draft. This was two spots ahead of the Bucks second round pick (Sindarius Thornwell), which they sent to the Clippers for cash.

Sterling Brown is the brother to former NBA player Shannon Brown. Brown stands 6’6″ and weighs 225 pounds. He played four seasons at SMU and played in a program record 136 games. Brown averaged 13.4 points, 6.5 rebounds, and 3 assists per game. He also led the American Athletic Conference in three point shooting, shooting 44.9% from three point range. Brown was selected to the All-AAC Second Team.

Brown has been called a taller, longer Malcolm Brogdon. He hasn’t mastered any single skill, but doesn’t have any particular weakness in his game. Brown doesn’t jump out as explosive at first glance, but according to some scouts is a very athletic and lanky guard.

The Bucks are hoping to get Brown on their Summer  League roster as soon as possible. The Bucks Summer League schedule stats tomorrow, Friday, July 7th, against the Cleveland Cavaliers. Other Bucks participating in Summer League competition are Thon Maker, Rashad Vaughn, former Wisconsin basketball player Bronson Koenig, and the Bucks first round pick D.J. Wilson.

Report: FA guard Derrick Rose meeting with the Bucks

The Milwaukee Bucks could be in the market for some help at point guard.

ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski reported Monday morning that the team is hosting free agent guard Derrick Rose, most recently of the New York Knicks. Milwaukee is already over the salary cap, and would need to shed contracts to sign a high-priced player such as Rose, according to Wojnarowski.

Named the 2011 NBA MVP while with Chicago, Rose played in just 49 games the next three years due to knee injuries and was eventually traded last summer to the Knicks. He averaged 18.0 points, 4.4 assists and 3.8 rebounds per game, as New York struggled to a 31-51 record.

Rose is originally from Chicago and could be looking to get back to the Midwest.

The Bucks used a combination of Malcolm Brogdon and Matthew Dellavedova at point guard a year ago, though Giannis Antetokounmpo served as the primary ball handler and led the team in assists.

Clutch Brogdon gives Bucks 103-100 win over Celtics

BOSTON — The Milwaukee Bucks held off a Boston Celtics rally for a 103-100 win thanks to six key points down the stretch from rookie Malcolm Brogdon.

Brogdon finished the game with 16 points and nine rebounds, but none bigger than the contested shot he converted with just seconds remaining to seal the win for Milwaukee.

”Tonight the ball was in my hands at the end of the game,” Brogdon said. ”It takes a lot of character and will to win more than anything to have it in a rookie’s hands at the end of the game.”

Brogdon’s confidence is one of the reasons his play has put him in the conversation for Rookie of the Year. The 26-year-old Virginia product is averaging 10.3 points per game and shooting nearly 46 percent on the season.

Giannis Antetokounmpo added 22 points and nine rebounds, while Khris Middleton poured in 19 points. The win keeps Milwaukee in a tie with Atlanta for the fifth spot in the Eastern Conference standings with seven games to go. The Bucks have a two-game cushion in the playoff hunt and have won five of their last six, including the last four on the road.

Milwaukee returns home for a pair of games this weekend against the Pistons and Mavericks.
