MILWAUKEE (AP) -Milwaukee Bucks coach Larry Krystkowiak will miss Tuesday night's game against the Toronto Raptors after his wife, Jan, went into labor with twins a few hours before the opening tip.
Bucks assistant Tony Brown said he was buying groceries around 3 p.m. Tuesday when he got a text message from Krystkowiak asking him to take over.
``He is at the hospital right now,'' Brown said. ``I don't have any updates.''
Jan Krystkowiak, a former basketball player at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee, is expecting twin girls. The couple already has three sons, Cameron, Luc and Ben.
Krystkowiak also is dealing with the recent loss of his uncle, Marion Krystkowiak, who died on Sunday. Krystkowiak was estranged from his father as a youngster and came to view his uncles as father figures.
