Michael Carter-Williams to Undergo Season-Ending Hip Surgery

by March 07, 2016

The Milwaukee Bucks announced Monday that point guard Michael Carter-Williams is done for the remainder of the season, and will go under the knife to repair the torn labrum in his left hip this week.

MCW, 24, has put up averages of 11.5 points, 5.1 rebounds, a team-high 5.2 assists and 1.48 steals in 30.5 minutes through 54 games.

The Bucks acquired the former NBA Rookie of the Year at the trade deadline two years ago, in a three-team swap that sent Brandon Knight to Phoenix.

Per the Journal Sentinel:

Carter-Williams will have surgery for a torn labrum in his left hip at the Steadman Clinic in Vail, Colo., the team announced. The Bucks released a statement that said Mark Philippon would perform the surgery and the recovery time for Carter-Williams is expected to be three months.
