Mirza Teletovic underwent surgery to repair cartilage in his left knee before learning a short time later he would be sidelined indefinitely with pulmonary embolism in both lungs. According to Bucks officials, he was to rest for 10 days, which was until Dec. 24, before having a supervised rehabilitation. But two sources close to the Bucks claim Teletovic won’t be returning anytime soon. They believe the 6-foot-9 forward will be sidelined for at least three more months – or until late in the regular season. At that point, it could be difficult for Teletovic to be in game shape for the playoffs, if the highly erratic Bucks would make them.
The Bucks are probably going to be in the market to fill a need equally as important: a shooter – especially with Mirza Teletovic’s future up in the air. Teletovic is sidelined indefinitely with blood clots in both of his lungs. “They (the Bucks) are a pretty good team,’’ said a veteran NBA advanced scout, who saw the Bucks up close and personal in recent weeks. “They can be really good on defense with their length, and they attack the basket pretty well on offense with Giannis (Antetokounmpo) and they have some good mid-range shooters like (Kris) Middleton and (Tony) Snell. “They just don’t have outside shooters. I see that as their biggest weakness.’’
