The Bucks could be without Malcolm Brogdon for a while.
Milwaukee announced Saturday the third-year guard has suffered a minor plantar fascia tear in his right foot. He sustained the injury in a win over the Heat on Friday and is out indefinitely.
According to ESPN, Brogdon is expected to be out for six to eight weeks.

Brogdon has been under the radar, but is one of the NBA’s most efficient shooters. He is on pace to join the prestigious 50-40-90 club and is averaging a career-high 15.6 points, 4.5 rebounds and 3.2 assists in 64 games for the Bucks in 2018-19.
The 2017 rookie of the year has been an impactful contributor for his team, helping lead Milwaukee (52-17) to the best record in the NBA.
The Eastern Conference-leading Bucks are 9-3 since the All-Star break, but losing Brogdon temporarily could be big. They will face off against a dangerous 76ers team on Sunday.
