The Milwaukee Bucks are making an attempt to hold off the Toronto Raptors to the leading spot from the East, however that job just got tougher due to a key accident.

Bucks forward Nikola Mirotic has a break on his left hand, the team announced Wednesday. The team did not provide a timetable for his return, but sources confirmed to ESPN which Mirotic will miss about two to four weeks.

The Athletic first reported that the accident.

The Bucks are also without starting point guard Malcolm Brogdon, who’s expected to miss six or eight weeks with a minor plantar fascia tear on his right foot.

After averaging 16.7 points and 8.3 rebounds per game for New Orleans, he has averaged 11.6 points and 5.4 rebounds per contest for Milwaukee.

The Bucks are 10-4 from the matches he’s played . That has helped Milwaukee build a three-game lead to the Eastern Conference.
