General Manager David Stearns confirms that Christian Yelich will miss the remainder of the year with a fractured kneecap. Yelich will fly back to Milwaukee today.
It is still unknown whether he will need surgery.
“First and foremost, we feel awful for Christian. This is a guy who has carried us in a number of ways over the last two years. From a team perspective, we have a lot of guys in that locker room that will hurt tonight. This is a gut punch,” said Stearns.
