VIDEO: Michael Carter-Williams will have surgery to repair a torn labrum in his hip
HANG TIME HEADQUARTERS — The Milwaukee Bucks will have to finish the season without the services of Michael Carter-Williams. The third-year point guard is scheduled for season-ending surgery on the torn labrum in his left hip on Thursday and the recovery time, according to the Bucks, is expected to be three months.
Carter-Williams started 37 games for the Bucks this season, averaging 11.5 points, 5.1 rebounds, a team-leading 5.2 assists and 1.48 steals. The Bucks, a playoff team last season, have struggled to reach expectations this season. At 26-37 the Bucks are currently 12th in the Eastern Conference standings, six games behind the Chicago Bulls for the eighth and final spot.
The Bucks visit the Bulls tonight at the United Center (8 ET, League Pass).
