Brogdon was spotted telling teammates he heard a pop. After tests were run, the Bucks determined that Brogdon suffered a Partially Torn Quad in his left leg, the team announced today. He will miss 6-8 weeks.
Milwaukee Bucks guard Malcolm Brogdon suffered a left quadricep tendon injury during the second quarter of last night’s game at Minnesota. This morning, he underwent an MRI and subsequent examination by team physician Dr. William Raasch at Froedtert & the Medical College of Wisconsin. The exam revealed a partially torn left quadricep tendon that is expected to sideline Brogdon for 6-to-8 weeks.
Brogdon has played in 46 games this (20 starts) and averaged 13.3 points, 3.3 rebounds and 3.2 assists in 30.5 minutes. The 25-year-old reigning Rookie of the Year hits the injury list on the same day his teammate Jabari Parker returns from a torn ACL.
