Milwaukee Bucks' Zaza Pachulia has fractured foot

The Milwaukee Bucks can’t catch a break. Or actually, maybe they’re catching too many as big man Zaza Pachulia suffered a fractured foot during a recent game.

It’s just another injury in a long line of such for the Bucks who have a decimated roster.

Zaza Pachulia has fractured foot; will be reexamined in four weeks.

Keep in mind – that’s a re-exam in four weeks, not a return. Of course, players have been known to heal faster than their original prognoses, but that’s still a pretty hefty blow to the Bucks, who brought Pachulia over from the Atlanta Hawks in free agency.

John Henson will likely be the biggest beneficiary of Pachulia’s absence while Ekpe Udoh and Ersan Ilyasova will also likely see a bump in minutes.

Regardless, it’s just another tough blow for the woeful Bucks as they march towards the lottery with a roster looking like a MASH unit. Hopefully some good luck will finally bounce their way come the NBA lottery as they’ll be in the thick of the Andrew Wiggins tanking party.
