After receiving their championship ring as the season kicked off in the front of their fans at Fiserv Forum, marquee player and part of their Big 3, Jrue Holiday picks up an injury which ruled him out of remaining game against the Kevin Durant led Brooklyn Nets.

However after picking an injury in the first half of the game itself, the 31-years-old guard made his way into the dressing room. According to the Milwaukee Bucks’ injury update, Jrue Holiday has suffered from a heel contusion.

Jrue Holiday, while he was on the court managed to score 12 points for the home team. He went for 5 of 7 and was looking dangerous whenever he shot the ball inside the paint. Jrue Holiday Injury scare might haunt the Bucks, if it anything serious as the Bucks play the Philadelphia 76ers next. Playing for roughly around 18 minutes, Holiday seemed to start his form from just where he left in the previous season.
The Milwaukee Bucks led by as many as 18 points in the first half against the Brooklyn Nets, who surely made a slow start without Kyrie Irving.
