Bucks’ Nikola Mirotic out with thumb injury

Nikola Mirotic has been diagnosed with a fractured and sprained left thumb, the Milwaukee Bucks announced Wednesday.

The Bucks did not reveal a timetable for Mirotic’s return.

Acquired from the New Orleans Pelicans at the trade deadline, the 6-foot-11 power forward is averaging 11.6 points, 5.4 rebounds and 1.4 assists while shooting 52.1 percent from the field in 14 games (three starts) for the Bucks.

Milwaukee’s injuries are piling up with the playoffs looming.

Guard Malcolm Brogdon was diagnosed with a minor plantar fascia tear, a right foot injury, Saturday.
