The Milwaukee Bucks will be without one of their key contributors for at least two weeks.

Bucks forward and fan favorite Bobby Portis sustained an MCL tear. NBA insider Shams Charania reported the news of Portis’ injury Wednesday afternoon.

“Milwaukee Bucks’ key F/C Bobby Portis has suffered an MCL sprain in his right knee and will miss some time,” Charania tweeted.

The Milwaukee Bucks account also tweeted about Portis’ looming absence. They tweeted, “Medical Update on Bobby Portis: Bobby Portis suffered a right knee MCL sprain and a right ankle sprain in Monday’s game at Detroit. He will be re-evaluated in two weeks.”



In 47 games this season, Portis recorded an average of 14.4 points and 10.1 rebounds per game. He shot 34.1 percent from 3 and 82.9 percent from the free-throw line this season and 49.9 percent from the field.

The Bucks will surely miss Portis and his contributions over the next two weeks. Milwaukee has games lined up vs. the Denver Nuggets, the LA Clippers, and the Boston Celtics over the next two weeks. The Nuggets and reigning NBA MVP Nikola Jokic are on the ledger Wednesday night for the Bucks. They stand 30-17 through the first 47 games of the season and sit 3rd in the NBA’s Eastern Conference Standings.

The NBA world reacted to the terrible news about Portis and his injury after it broke.
