Bembry (knee) was waived by the Bucks on Thursday, Shams Charania of The Athletic reports. Bembry tore his ACL and MCL in his right knee in mid-March, and the Bucks are letting him go following surgery to open up a roster spot. It's unclear if Bembry will be healthy enough to play next season.
Bembry underwent successful season-ending surgery to repair the ACL and MCL in his right knee. Bembry suffered the injury while closing out to Jordan Poole in the third quarter of a March 12 contest and had to be helped off the court. The veteran forward spent time with the Nets and Bucks during the 2021 campaign and averaged 5.1 points, 2.9 rebounds and 1.2 assists in 18.3 minutes across 56 appearances. Bembry will be a free agent heading into the 2022-23 campaign, though there may not be many willing suitors if he has to miss a big chunk of the season due to rehab.
Bembry (knee) has been diagnosed with a torn ACL and MCL in his right knee, Eric Nehm of The Athletic reports. The Bucks' fears were confirmed Monday night after further imaging on Bembry's leg revealed multiple torn ligaments. Bembry will obviously miss the remainder of the 2021-22 campaign, and his recovery could encompass much of the 2022-23 season, as well.
The Bucks fear Bembry suffered a season-ending right knee injury during Saturday's 122-109 loss to the Warriors, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports. Bembry suffered the injury while closing out on Jordan Poole in the third quarter and had to be helped off the court. According to Marc J. Spears of ESPN.com, Bembry was spotted with a large brace on his knee and was walking around with crutches after the game, so it's not too surprising that the Bucks are bracing for a long-term absence. He's scheduled to undergo an MRI later Sunday, with the results of those tests likely giving the Bucks a clearer idea regarding how long he might be out. Since joining the Bucks in mid-February, Bembry appeared in seven games and averaged 0.9 points, 1.4 rebounds and 0.9 assists in 10.9 minutes.
Bembry (knee) has been ruled out for the remainder of Saturday's contest against Golden State. Bembry hurt his right knee while closing out on Jordan Poole in the third quarter and had to be helped off the court. The Bucks ruled him out shortly thereafter, though further details about the injury have yet to be announced. Before exiting, Bembry played four scoreless minutes, during which he notched one steal. Per Jim Owczarski of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, he's scheduled to get an MRI on the injured knee.
