Source — Eric Bledsoe of Milwaukee Bucks has small rib fracture

Milwaukee Bucks guard Eric Bledsoe will miss the start of the 2019-20 season after suffering a small fracture of his rib, a source confirmed to ESPN.

Bledsoe could be out for up to three weeks, the source said, after getting injured during the Bucks’ 133-99 preseason win on Wednesday night against the Utah Jazz.

The injury was originally diagnosed as a strained oblique muscle after he posted five points and two assists in 12 minutes of action. The Bucks will open the regular season at Houston on Thursday, Oct. 24.

The Athletic earlier reported on Bledsoe’s injury.

Bledsoe averaged 15.9 points and 5.5 assists last year, his second in Milwaukee.
