The Milwaukee Bucks were already shorthanded entering Wednesday’s clash against the Toronto Raptors. Giannis Anteotkounmpo was ruled out with a calf injury while Jae Crowder is facing a long road to recovery after suffering a significant groin injury.
Unfortunately for the Bucks, they lost another player during the contest. This was after second-year stud MarJon Beauchamp was forced to exit the game in the second quarter with an injury.
Milwaukee Bucks’ MarJon Beauchamp Leaves Raptors Game
At the mid-way point of the second period, Beauchamp was seen limping off the court as he made his way straight to the locker room. It did not take long before the Bucks made an official announcement on the 23-year-old’s status:
MarJon Beauchamp is out for the rest of the game with a right ankle sprain.

That doesn’t sound very encouraging. Then again, the fact that Beauchamp is just 23 likely means that he should be able to get over this injury fairly quickly. This is, of course, assuming that the sprain isn’t too severe. The hope here is that the ankle does not swell overnight.
Beauchamp’s next chance to play will be on Thursday against the Charlotte Hornets, so we will keep an eye on the injury report over the next couple of days.
However, if this is a significant injury then it comes at a terrible time for the 6-foot-6 small forward. Beauchamp is expected to get a bigger role in the rotation amid Crowder’s injury. He obviously won’t be able to take advantage of the opportunity if he’s out.
