MILWAUKEE (AP) -Milwaukee Bucks guard Charlie Bell tore a ligament in his right knee Saturday and will miss at least two weeks, breaking a string of 191 consecutive appearances dating to the 2005-06 season.
Dave Babcock, Milwaukee's director of player personnel, said Bell tore the medial collateral ligament in the knee during Saturday's win over Cleveland. After two weeks of rest, Bell's knee will be re-evaluated by Bucks orthopedic physician Dr. John Heinrich.
Bell has averaged 7.6 points, 2.5 rebounds and 3.1 assists in 68 games this season, including five starts. In the last eight games, he had led the Bucks' reserves with 15 points and 3.4 assists a game.
