The injury puts Bledsoe out for at least two weeks. He will be re-evaluated after that, with the timeline being updated according to the evaluation. Bledsoe has already been injured this year, a rib ailment prior to the season that kept him out another two weeks.
Milwaukee signed Eric Bledsoe to a contract extension this previous summer, a move that made some people skeptical. The organization let dependable sixth-man Malcolm Brogdon walk and instead kept the cheaper George Hill to be the primary backup to Bledsoe.
The 30-year-old Bledsoe is averaging 15 points, 5.7 assists and 4.9 rebounds per game. Hill figures to take on the starting role while Bledsoe is on the mend.
