Indiana Pacers guard Malcolm Brogdon will miss time with a quadriceps injury suffered Wednesday night against the Milwaukee Bucks.

Brogdon missed Friday’s game against the Chicago Bulls with the injury, which the Pacers said is a torn left rectus femoris.

Coach Nate McMillan said Brogdon requires rest, not surgery.

“It’s going to have to heal (on its own),” said McMillan. “It’s a matter of how much pain he can tolerate.”

Brogdon is officially listed as week-to-week. He’s already missed 15 games this season with injury.

Brogdon is averaging a career-high 16.3 points this season, his fourth in the league and first with Indiana.

The former second-round pick and 2016-17 Rookie of the Year is also averaging career bests in assists (7.1) and rebounds (4.7).
