Just yesterday he couldn't lose to the Los Angeles Lakers for the same reason.

What is striking is that the Milwaukee Bucks did not provide any update or timetable regarding the injury of Beverley, who joined the team last February. However, he himself ventured to predict that the operation would take him out of combat “for months.” This clearly raises questions about his participation in the remainder of the season.
