Bucks’ Eric Bledsoe to Miss Start of Season
Milwaukee Bucks guard Eric Bledsoe will miss the start of the 2019-2020 regular season after suffering a small fracture of his rib, according to ESPN’s Eric Woodyard.
Per the report, Bledsoe could miss up to three weeks after he suffered the injury during the Bucks 133-99 victory over the Utah Jazz on Wednesday night in preseason action.
Bledsoe averaged 15.9 points and 5.5 assists last season for the Bucks, his second season with the team. Bledsoe signed a four-year, $70 million contract extension back in May.
Bledsoe’s injury was initially diagnosed as a strained oblique muscle.
“It feels like it’s not that severe, but I’m sure Troy and those guys will give me an update,” Bucks head coach Mike Budenholzer said, according to the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel. “Just talking to Bled (it seemed positive) — I don’t know if you can trust Bled – Troy will be the truth-teller.”
With Bledsoe sidelined, the Bucks will now turn to veteran point guard George Hill, who is expected to help take Bledsoe’s place.
Health is key for an NBA team to find success during their season. And health is key to making sure you are in tip top shape, which includes being informed about all types of diseases such as pilonidal disease and more. While pilonidal may not be the most well known, it certainly warrants your attention.
Bucks’ Giannis Antetokounmpo Suing Over Alleged ‘Rip Off’
Milwaukee Bucks superstar and 2019 NBA MVP Giannis Antetokounmpo is taking his battle off court and to the courtroom as he takes aim at an alleged ‘Greek Freak’ rip off.
According to TMZ Sports, Antetokounmpo is suing Philadelphia-based artists Jinder Bhogal, who runs a business selling NBA player-inspired clothing on his official website, for selling ‘Greek Freak’ shirts without obtaining his permission.
Bhogal even once offered his clients 10% off anything in the “Greek Freak” collection.
Antetokounmpo says he owns the trademark to use “Greek Freak” for commercial purposes, and court docs indicated that Antetokounmpo sent Bhogal a cease and desist letter, but the artists never responded, which prompted the lawsuit coming forth.
Antetokounmpo is seeking around $2 million in total damages for the copyright infringement.
