Report: Malcolm Brogdon may only miss six weeks with plantar fascia tear
Malcolm Brodgon has a minor plantar fascia tear in his right foot, but he may be back for the team before too long.
The Milwaukee Bucks announced on Saturday the results of Brogdon’s MRI and physical exam, which showed his injury. His timetable is said to be 6-8 weeks before a return, though ESPN’s Malika Andrews and Adrian Wojnarowski say he could be able to return closer to the six week mark.
Brogdon only played seven minutes in the team’s win over the Bucks on Friday night. The third-year guard is averaging 15.6 points, 4.5 rebounds and 3.2 assists per game this season. More impressively, he’s shooting 50.5 percent from the field, 42.6 percent on threes, and 92.8 percent on free throws, which would put him in the exclusive 50/40/90 club, which has only been done 13 times in NBA history.
The Bucks are 52-17 and looking to make a deep playoff run. Based on a six-week timeline, Brogdon might be able to return during a conference semifinals series.
