Brandon Jennings having foot surgery, out 4-6 weeksPosted by Inside Hoops
Milwaukee Bucks guard Brandon Jennings (6-1, 169) will undergo surgery this afternoon to repair a fracture of the fifth metatarsal of his left foot, General Manager John Hammond announced today.
Jennings, 21, was examined by Bucks orthopaedic physician Dr. Michael Gordon following Saturday’s game vs. Utah and an MRI procedure on Sunday confirmed the diagnosis.
Jennings is expected to miss four to six weeks of action and will be re-evaluated throughout his recovery.
The AP reports:
Jennings had started every game since being picked 10th overall in 2009, a string of 107 regular-season games and seven in the postseason. He’d been averaging 17.9 points per game and 5.5 assists in 25 games this year.
Jennings said earlier in the week that he hurt himself on a drive to the basket against the Spurs when he came down awkwardly on his knee and it put pressure on his ankle. Against the Jazz, he went 3 of 7 from the field and finished with six points, four assists and three rebounds.
