Pat Connaughton added 16 points (4-8 FG, 3-6 3PT, 5-6 FT), five rebounds, and one steal in Thursday's victory against the Wizards.
Connaughton was able to record his third straight double-digit scoring effort tonight. His six free throw attempts actually marked a season-high. He'll look to keep the momentum going against the Grizzlies on Saturday.
According to the NBA Injury Report, Pat Connaughton (finger) is listed as probable to play Saturday against the TWolves.
After a four-week absence from the team due to having surgery on his hand to repair a fractured finger, the veteran seems likely to suit up for Saturday's game. Prior to Connaughton's injury, he was averaging 10.1 points, 4.4 rebounds, and 1.2 assists a game. He will likely be on a minutes limit and restrict the playing time of both Jordan Nwora and Wesley Matthews.
Connaughton underwent successful surgery on his right hand. His recovery is expected to take approximately four weeks.
Grayson Allen and Jordan Nwora played most when Connaughton left Thursday’s game against Phoenix. Allen and Nwora are likely the primary beneficiaries while he is out, but Milwaukee’s usage is very concentrated toward their big three, so they are only on the radar in deeper leagues. The surgery comes at a decent time for Connaughton, as he will take advantage of the All-Star break to recover.
Pat Connaughton (hand) will undergo surgery on his right hand and is expected to be back before the end of the regular season.
Connaughton sustained the finger injury in Thursday's loss to the Suns. The veteran will now undergo surgery, but he is expected to be back in the lineup before the end of the regular season. The Bucks may pick up a free agent to help with their depth issue, but until then, look for players like Wesley Matthews or Jordan Nwora to see additional minutes in Connaughton's absence.
