The Milwaukee Bucks have a lot to celebrate on Tuesday evening; the team got their championship rings, and they have a 66-59 lead over the Brooklyn Nets at halftime of the first game of their regular season.
However, they got some bad news during the first half.
Former All-Star Jrue Holiday will miss the remainder of the game on Tuesday evening.
The announcement from the team can be seen in a Tweet that at is embedded below.
The injury has been labeled as a right heel contusion.
Holiday had 12 points, one rebounds and one assist before exiting the game.
At one point during the first half the Bucks had a 19-point lead, and are led by Giannis Antetokounmpo, who has 18 points, nine rebounds and three assists.
Over on the Nets side of things, James Harden has 15 points, four rebounds and three assists.
Hopefully the injury is not anything serious for Holiday, because he is a huge part of the Bucks and they will need him if they want success this season.
