Michael Carter-Williams

Milwaukee Bucks point guard Michael Carter-Williams is set to have left hip surgery and will miss the rest of the season, reports ESPN.

The 24-year-old will undergo the procedure in Colorado on Thursday to repair a torn labrum... and will need three months to recover, the team revealed this week.

This season, Carter-Williams was averaging 11.5 points, 5.1 rebounds, and a team-high 5.2 assists in 54 games,

A source tells the AP that he's been dealing with discomfort in his hip since late December, and has spent the past two months trying to play through it and was hoping to finish the season before addressing the injury. But, doctors informed him he needed to have surgery now.

The Bucks are 26-37 so far this season.
