Bucks' Carter-Williams to have hip surgery, out for year

Posted:

  
MILWAUKEE (AP) -- Point guard Michael Carter-Williams will have left hip surgery and miss the rest of the season for the Milwaukee Bucks.
   
General manager John Hammond said Monday that Carter-Williams would have the procedure in Colorado on Thursday to repair a torn labrum. He will need three months to recover.
   
Carter-Williams averaged 11.5 points, 5.1 rebounds, and a team-high 5.2 assists in 54 games this season, including 37 starts.
   
Most recently, Carter-Williams came off the bench with young forward Giannis Antetokounmpo taking over more of the ball-handling responsibilities in the starting lineup.
   
The loss of Carter-Williams is the latest setback for a Bucks backcourt that has also been without veteran Greivis Vasquez for most of the season because of right ankle surgery.
