Monroe to miss three games

Milwaukee Bucks center Greg Monroe is set to be sidelined for approximately three games after he sprained the MCL in his right knee. 

Monroe sustained the injury during his team’s shootaround prior to their game against the Los Angeles Lakers on Tuesday, which they ended up losing 113-95. 

Monroe did not feature in the game and later had an MRI scan, which revealed a Grade 1 sprain. 

The 25-year-old’s injury is a major blow for the Bucks as they have only won 10 of their 26 games thus far, which included a 108-95 victory over the Golden State Warriors to end their record-breaking 24-game winning streak to start the season. 

In the 25 games he has played this season, Monroe has been averaging a career-high 16.2 points, along with 9.8 rebounds, 2.4 assists and 1.2 steals per game.
