The 2017-18 NBA regular season has been overshadowed by injuries to prominent players like Gordon Hayward and Jeremy Lin. Unfortunately for the Los Angeles Clippers and hoops fans everywhere, the injury bug has claimed another victim in Milos Teodosic.
The Clippers announced on Sunday that Milos Teodosic is out for an indefinite amount of time with a plantar fascia injury in his left foot that he suffered on Saturday night during Los Angeles’ game against Phoenix.
Teodosic owned the NBA’s preseason with his incredible passing ability, showing NBA fans what international hoops fans have talking about for nearly a decade. Teodosic was everything everyone hoped he would be, and losing him so soon in his NBA career is heartbreaking.
Plantar fascia injuries are notoriously fickle, and this is one of those instances where being out for an indefinite period of time is completely accurate. There is no timetable for Teodosic’s return because it’s impossible to put a timeline on something like a plantar fascia injury. It’ll be better when it’s better.
The Clippers signed Teodosic to help share the point guard load after Chris Paul was traded to the Houston Rockets this summer. With Teodosic out, some combination of Austin Rivers and Lou Williams will have to hold it down.
