MILWAUKEE (AP) — Milwaukee Bucks forward Mirza Teletovic is out because of a blockage in his lungs.

The team said Thursday that pulmonary embolisms were discovered in both of Teletovic's lungs. The 32-year-old consulted with Bucks team physicians after experiencing unusual fatigue earlier this week.

Following a 10-day rest period, Teletovic will begin a supervised rehabilitation program. No other timetable was provided for what was considered a long-term injury.

Teletovic missed about three months of the regular season because of blood clots in his lungs while playing with the Brooklyn Nets in 2015.

Teletovic has missed the last 16 games, including 10 after arthroscopic surgery to repair cartilage in his left knee on Nov. 21.

In 10 games this season, Teletovic is averaging 7.1 points and 2.3 rebounds while shooting 46.7 percent from 3-point range.
