He was ruled out of the season opener against Brooklyn Nets, just after 17 minutes of action. He seemed to have injured his leg and the team made it official a few minutes later, ruling him out for the rest of the game with a right heel contusion. 

Injury Update:

Jrue Holiday – right heel contusion – will not return tonight

— Milwaukee Bucks (@Bucks) October 20, 2021

The point guard subbed out of the game with 3:13 left in the first half and had 12 points (5-7 FGs) to his name at that point. 

This injury is some tough luck for Milwaukee, who were already playing the opening game without key role players in Bobby Portis (hamstring), Semi Ojeleye (calf), Rodney Hood (foot) and Donte DiVincenzo (ankle). 

Going by games played over the past four seasons, Holiday has been a decently reliable player having played 268 of a possible 308 games.

He had played a key role in the Bucks championship run during the 2021 postseason with averages of 17.3 points, 8.7 assists and 5.7 rebounds through each of the 23 playoff games. 

The point guard is coming off one of the busiest summers going from the NBA Finals to the Olympics in a matter of a couple of days. Winning the gold medal with Team USA capped off an incredible first season with the Bucks for Holiday, who was acquired by the Milwaukee franchise in a trade from New Orleans in the 2020 offseason. 

The first season with the Bucks, when he shot career-highs from the field (50.3 percent) and beyond the arc (39.2 percent), also earned him his second career All-Defensive First Team selection. 

The point guard, entering his 13th season, is currently on a 4 year $135 million contract – an extension he signed in Apr. 2021 to remain with the Bucks until 2024-25. 

Hopefully, this injury is not anything series or long-term.  NBA.com will have you covered with the latest. So stay tuned.
