The Bucks just cannot seem to catch a break. Or, they are catching too many breaks.

Power forward Drew Gooden will be out for the next 4-to-6 weeks due to ongoing plantar fasciitis in his left foot, the team announced

Gooden had missed the last six games (and 21 overall this season) due to this and rather than keep fighting through it he will get treatment. Which makes more sense than watching him limp through games and not produce at the level expected of a guy who just signed a five-year, $32 million deal.

But this is just the latest in a long line of Bucks injuries this season that have kept the team from performing to the level many expected.
