Former Virginia Cavaliers basketball star left Thursday’s game between the Milwaukee Bucks and the Minnesota Timberwolves before halftime, and had to be helped to the locker room.

The news today is that Brogdon partially tore a tendon in his left quadriceps and will need six to eight weeks of recovery time.

Brogdon has started in 20 games this season for Milwaukee, appearing in 46. He is averaging more than 13 point, 3 rebounds, and 3 assists per game.

Best wishes to The President for a full and speedy recovery. (Although six weeks of downtime would get him through the opening weekend of March Madness; just saying.)
