Bucks request waivers on F Teletovic

By The Associated Press
MILWAUKEE (AP) The Milwaukee Bucks have requested waivers on forward Mirza Teletovic, who has been sidelined since December because of blockages in his lungs.
General manager Jon Horst said Saturday that the move was made after consulting with team doctors and other physicians. Horst says Teletovic's health was the primary concern.
The Bucks announced on Dec. 14 that pulmonary embolisms were discovered in both of Teletovic's lungs.
The 6-foot-9 Teletovic averaged 7.1 points in 10 games this season while shooting 46 percent from 3-point range. The six-year veteran arrived in Milwaukee in 2016 and played a key role off the bench for a young team that lost in the first round of the Eastern Conference playoffs.
Teletovic also missed about three months of the regular season in 2015 because of blood clots in his lungs while playing with the Brooklyn Nets.
