The Bucks are planning to waive Kurucs, Shams Charania of The Athletic reports.
Milwaukee is the third team Kurucs has suited up for this season after starting the year with Brooklyn and ultimately getting traded to Houston. He only saw significant minutes with the Bucks in one game and otherwise never really had an opportunity to carve out a role for himself. The 23-year-old will now be forced to look for a new opportunity.
Kurucs (oblique) is listed as available on the Bucks' injury report ahead of Tuesday's game at Charlotte.
Acquired from Houston as part of the P.J. Tucker deal, Kurucs hasn't made much of an impact for his new team, appearing in only five games and logging single-digit minutes in four of those contests. He can be ignored in virtually all fantasy leagues.

Kurucs took full advantage of his limited workload in the blowout win as he drained two triples and set a new high mark in scoring with his new team.

Kurucs has been active for each of the Bucks' first four games of April, but he has yet to play in any contest in coach's decision.
Acquired March 17 as a throw-in to the trade that sent P.J. Tucker to Milwaukee, Kurucs was sidelined for the first two weeks with his new team while he battled an oblique strain that he initially suffered while playing for the Rockets in late February. He's since made a full recovery from the injury, but the 23-year-old has yet to make his Bucks debut. Kurucs is unlikely to see any playing time with the Bucks outside of blowout situations.

Kurucs (oblique) is questionable for Saturday's game against the Spurs.

Kurucs (oblique) is listed as out for Friday's game against the Jazz, Jonathan Feigen of the Houston Chronicle reports.
Despite having more than a week to heal up from his strained left oblique due to the All-Star break, Kurucs won't be available for either half of the Rockets' back-to-back set to begin the second half of the season after he sat out Thursday's loss to the Kings. While Kurucs hasn't been counted on to play major minutes this season, his absence hurts from a depth standpoint, as the Rockets could have as few as eight players available for Friday's contest.
