Jae Crowder of the Milwaukee Bucks is set to undergo surgery to mend a left adductor and abdominal tear, which will keep him sidelined for approximately eight weeks, as reported by Shams Charania of The Athletic.
Crowder left Saturday’s game against the Magic prematurely and had already been ruled out for Monday’s contest against Chicago.
However, his absence will now extend for a significantly longer period. This extended absence creates an opportunity for Pat Connaughton and MarJon Beauchamp to see increased playing time.
While they may not be essential additions in standard leagues, they could hold value in deeper leagues and serve as viable streaming options should Milwaukee face additional injuries.
Crowder had previously filled in as the starter when Khris Middleton was sidelined with a knee injury, but that role is now up for grabs.
