The injured list continues to grow and grow for the NBA’s best team, the Milwaukee Bucks, who have lost veteran big man Pau Gasol for approximately a month because of an injured left ankle, according to Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN.
Bucks center Pau Gasol is expected to miss approximately one month with a left ankle injury, league sources tell ESPN. He joins Nikola Mirotic and Malcolm Brogdon as among those likely out for the regular season.

Gasol and teammates Malcom Brogdon (plantar fascia tear in his right foot) and Nikola Mirotic (fractured left thumb) will all likely miss the regular season for the Bucks. Gasol was signed by the Bucks on March 3, two days after being bought out by the San Antonio Spurs.
The 38-year-old is averaging 1.3 points and 3.3 rebounds in 10.0 minutes in three games with the Bucks, shooting 16.7 percent from the field and 50.0 percent from the free-throw line.
The third overall pick of the 2001 NBA draft, the 17-year veteran carries career averages of 17.0 points, 9.2 boards, 3.2 dimes and 1.6 blocks in 33.4 minutes in 1,226 games (1,150) starts. The six-time All-Star has posted a shooting line of 50.7/36.8/75.3.
Milwaukee (54-19) will host the Cleveland Cavaliers (19-54) on Sunday.
