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.
Carter-Williams has missed the last four games with a left patellar injury and the hip problem. Carter-Williams has played 54 games this season and made 37 starts while averaging 11.5 points, 5.1 rebounds and 5.2 assists. […] Carter-Williams shot 45.2% from the field and 27.3% from three-point range while making 65.4% of his attempts from the foul line.
The point guard was benched in Charlotte on Nov. 29 but had a stretch of good games as a reserve and earned his starting job again.
