Carter-Williams (hip) will have surgery Thursday to help fix a torn labrum in his left hip and miss the rest of the season, Charles F. Gardner of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports. Carter-Williams had been fighting both a knee and hip injury and has missed the team's previous four games. With Carter-Williams now out, the point guard position gets even thinner than it already was for Milwaukee, with Greivis Vasquez (ankle) still recovering from surgery. In the meantime, the Bucks will continue to look to both O.J. Mayo and Jerryd Bayless to handle floor leading duties for the team, with forward Giannis Antetokounmpo also continuing to emerge as a playmaking point forward for the Bucks.
Carter-Williams (knee) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Thunder, Aron Yohannes of BrewHoop.com reports. In addition to his left patellar tendinitis, Carter-Williams is nursing a sore left hip, and the two injuries will conspire to keep him out for the third straight contest. Carter-Williams hasn't practiced since first suffering the ailment prior to last Monday's game against the Rockets, so until he's able to work out again without any complications, we likely won't see him back on the court.
Carter-Williams (knee) has been ruled out for Friday's game against the Timberwolves, Charles Gardner of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports. Carter-Williams has been dealing with tendinitis in his knee of late and will sit out for the third consecutive game Friday. According to Gardner, Carter-Williams has yet to return to practice as well. O.J Mayo will get another start in Friday, although he has struggled in the scoring column over his last five games, scoring in double figures just once in that span.
Carter-Williams (knee) is considered questionable for Friday's matchup with the Timberwolves, the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports. Carter-Williams has missed each of the last two games with tendinitis in his knee, and he could ultimately end up a game-time call, as was the case Wednesday against Indiana and Monday against Houston. The former Rookie of the Year has come off the bench and seen somewhat of a reduced role of late, as the Bucks have unleashed Giannis Antetokounmpo as their primary point guard in recent games.
Carter-Williams (knee) will not play in Wednesday' game against the Pacers. Carter-Williams was originally listed as questionable leading up to Wednesday's game after he missed Monday's game against the Rockets and sat out of Tuesday's practice. The Bucks didn't struggle too much without him in Monday's win over the Rockets, and his absence shouldn't have too large of an impact on the minutes distribution. His next chance to return will be on Friday against the Timberwolves.
