The Milwaukee Bucks forward Jae Crowder is expected to be unavailable through injury for approximately two months, the team confirmed on Monday. The forward suffered a left adductor and abdominal tear during last Saturday’s 112-97 defeat to the Orlando Magic.

Initially, the team announced that Crowder had experienced a groin strain. He then jetted off to Philadelphia to be evaluated by Dr. Bill Meyers, who specializes in core injuries, who detected the true nature of Crowder’s injuries.

“Sports can be brutal at times,” Bucks coach Adrian Griffin said ahead of his team’s 118-109 win over the Chicago Bulls on Monday night. “[Crowder] came into training camp in phenomenal shape — mind, body and spirit — and he’s a tremendous piece of what we’re trying to do moving forward.” Crowder is now scheduled to undergo surgery on Tuesday.
