Teletovic (illness) was waived by Milwaukee on Saturday.
After playing in just 10 games this season, the Bucks have waived Teletovic. He's been sidelined due to knee surgery since Nov. 7 and he also has a pulonary emboli in both of his lungs. Teletovic averaged 7.1 points and 2.3 rebounds during the 2017-2018 season.
Teletovic, who has been sidelined since Nov. 7 due to left knee surgery and a pulonary emboli in both of his lungs, refuted reports Wednesday that the latter condition will spell an end of his playing career, Matt Velazquez of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.
The lung issues aren't anything new for the veteran forward, who was previously sidelined for an extended period during the 2014-15 season with multiple blood clots. Though the health of his knee doesn't seem to be a concern at this juncture, the Bucks have no timetable for Teletovic to return to the court as a result of the pulonary emboli. Teletovic enters the final season of his three-year, $30 million contract with the Bucks in 2018-19.
Teletovic is out indefinitely as a result of pulmonary emboli in both lungs.
Teletovic was nearing a return from arthroscopic surgery to repair cartilage in his left knee, but after experiencing unusual fatigue earlier this week, the lung condition was also found. He's expected to have 10 days off for rest and will then begin a supervised rehab program to help combat the illness. Look for additional updates on Teletovic as he makes his way through the recovery process, though no timetable has been released at this point.
Teletovic underwent surgery to repair cartilage in his left knee and is expected to be out four weeks.
Teletovic has missed the last six contests with the knee injury, and now he'll be set to miss about a month after requiring surgery. The timetable leaves Teletovic with a return date around mid-to-late December, and his absence will leave Milwaukee light on frontcourt depth with John Henson now reportedly battling an eye injury. Rookie D.J. Wilson could be called upon to play extended minutes while the frontcourt is plagued with injuries.
Teletovic (knee) won't play Monday against the Wizards, Zach Rosen of the Wizards' official site reports.
Teletovic recently resumed working out, but the sore left knee will keep him sidelined for a sixth consecutive contest Monday. With an exceptional 46.7 percent mark from 3-point land on the season, Teletovic should have a spot waiting for him in the Bucks' rotation once he's healthy, but it's unclear if he's on track to return at any point during the team's three-game week.
