Shams Charania of The Athletic is reporting that the Bucks will be without Donte DiVincenzo for the rest of the playoffs.
He suffered a serious tendon injury to his left foot early in the Bucks’ eventual Game 3 win against the Miami Heat on Thursday night.
Significant blow for DiVincenzo and Milwaukee. He played a major role as starting guard on the title-contending Bucks, averaging 10.4 points, 5.8 rebounds and 3.1 assists this season. https://t.co/Bp3gS4UJiU
