Bucks guard Matthew Dellavedova suffered the injury on Sunday.

Milwaukee Bucks guard Matthew Dellavedova is expected to miss the next three to four weeks due to a right ankle sprain, the team announced on Tuesday.

Dellavedova suffered the injury during the fourth quarter of the Bucks' win over the Brooklyn Nets on Sunday. In 37 games this season, Dellavedova is averaging 4.4 points and 3.8 assists in 19.0 minutes. 

Milwaukee's depth at guard will be tested as Dellavedova joins reigning Kia Rookie of the Year Malcolm Brogdon on the injured list. Brogdon is expected to miss the next six to eight weeks with a partially torn left quadricep, which he suffered against the Minnesota Timberwolves on Feb. 1.

On Monday, the Bucks traded guard Rashad Vaughn and a protected second-round pick to the Nets for center Tyler Zeller.

The Bucks next game is against the New York Knicks tonight (7:30 ET, NBA League Pass).
