First Mirza Teletovic went down with a right knee injury and then Matthew Dellavedova a few days later with left knee tendinitis. More recently, Jason Terry strained his left calf and Tony Snell was sidelined by left patellar tendinitis, missing the past five games for the Milwaukee Bucks.

As a team, the Bucks (15-13) aren't making any excuses when it comes to injuries, even in the midst of a three-game losing streak heading into Tuesday's 7 p.m. matchup with the Cleveland Cavaliers at the BMO Harris Bradley Center.

But those injuries have taken a toll. One area in particular that has worn down of late has been the team's three-point shooting — an area in which Teletovic, Dellavedova and Snell had provided positives this season. Teletovic and Dellavedova have each been out for more than a month, with the Bucks adjusting while continuing to have success on the court.

The gap left offensively when Snell went out, though, has yet to be adequately filled, especially when it comes to his long-range shooting.

“Tony’s a big part of what we do," Khris Middleton said. "People sleep on him all the time thinking he’s just that fifth guy out there. He’s a great player for us. He spaces the floor, he’s a smart player. You can’t relax on him. … We can’t wait to get him back.”

Over the first 23 games, the Bucks made 36.5% of their three-point shots while attempting 24.3 per game.
