Milwaukee Bucks power forward Jae Crowder faces a two-month injury layoff after suffering a groin injury, the team confirmed on Monday.

Crowder, 33, was injured during Milwaukee’s 112-97 loss to the Orlando Magic on Saturday, limping out in the third quarter.

The Bucks said Monday that after testing and evaluation, Crowder had been diagnosed with a left adductor and abdominal tear.

“He will undergo surgery tomorrow (Tuesday) and be sidelined for approx eight weeks,” the Bucks said.

The injury comes as a blow to Milwaukee, who have made an uneven start to the NBA season which has left them eighth in the Eastern Conference with a 5-4 record.
