MILWAUKEE (AP) — Damian Lillard will miss the Milwaukee Bucks’ Monday night game with the Utah Jazz.

The Bucks’ injury report for Monday’s game lists the seven-time all-NBA guard as out for personal reasons. The Bucks also won’t have reserve guard Cam Payne available because he’s in concussion protocol.

This will be just the third game Lillard has missed this season. He missed two games in early November with a sore right calf.

Lillard is averaging 25.1 points, 6.9 assists and 4.3 rebounds this season, his first in Milwaukee since the Bucks acquired him from the Portland Trail Blazers.

The Bucks have lost three of their last four games heading into Monday’s matchup with the Jazz, who have won four of their last five.
