Jed Jacobson/Getty Images(ST. FRANCIS, Mil.) — The Milwaukee Bucks continue to lose key players from their lineup. The team announced that reserve point guard Kendall Marshall will miss the remainder of the season with a torn anterior cruciate ligament.
Marshall is a big part of the team’s bench rotation. The Bucks’ bench averages 43.6 points per game, the highest in the NBA.
“He’s been great for us,” Bucks coach Jason Kidd said. “It’s disappointing. It’s an unfortunate accident for a player who was playing well.
“We’ll play the 11 that we have and we’ll go from there,” Kidd added. “Kendall brought a lot to the table for us, being able to anchor that second group, keep the ball moving and post up, too.”
In 28 games this season, Marshall was averaging 4.2 points and 3.1 assists per game.
The Bucks are also dealing with the loss of rookie foreard Jabari Parker, also due to a torn ACL, and the suspension of center Larry Sanders.
