A former Cat has suffered a minor setback. Today, the Milwaukee Bucks announced that Eric Bledsoe fractured the cartilage between two of his ribs during Wednesday’s game vs. the Utah Jazz. According to Matt Velazquez, Bucks GM Jon Horst said no bones are broken nor surgery required, but Bledsoe will be sidelined for two to three weeks, or whenever the pain has lessened to the point he feels he can play.
In his second season in Milwaukee, Bledsoe averaged 15.9 points and 5.5 assists. The Bucks tip off the season October 24 at Houston.
