Monday March 7th, 2016

Milwaukee Bucks point guard Michael Carter-Williams will miss the final 19 games of the season due to a torn labrum in his left hip, the team announced on Monday.

Carter-Williams, 24, will undergo surgery to repair the injury on Thursday at the Steadman Clinic in Vail, Colo.

Carter-Williams averaged 11.5 points, 5.1 rebounds and 5.2 assists in 54 games (37 starts) this season. 

The former Syracuse star was acquired by the Bucks at the trade deadline during the 2015 season in a three-way deal involving the Philadelphia 76ers and Pheonix Suns. 

Milwaukee (26–37) is currently 12th in the Eastern Conference standings.
