Fans wanted to know why Milwaukee Bucks star Bobby Portis wears protective glasses after noticing his goggles vs the Celtics.
The Milwaukee Bucks are currently locked in an intense battle with the Boston Celtics in the Eastern Conference semi-finals.
The series is currently 3-3, with Game 5 taking place in Boston tonight. During Game 7, fans wanted to know why Bucks star Bobby Portis wears protective glasses.
Why does Bucks star Bobby Portis wear glasses?
During the Bucks’ first-round series against the Chicago Bulls, Portis took a shot to the eye from Tristan Thompson. The incident occurred in the first quarter of the Game 2 loss. Thompson accidentally hit Portis in the eye as they both went up for a rebound.
Portis’ eye started bleeding, with blood trickling down his cheek, and he was ruled out after half-time with a right eye abrasion. On Bally Sports Wisconsin’s telecast of the game, Bucks assistant coach Darvin Ham said Portis was “having problems with the vision in his right eye”.
What coach Mike Budenholzer said about Portis’ eye injury
Ahead of Game 3, it was announced Bobby Portis would wear protective goggles after suffering the eye abrasion.
At the time, coach Mike Budenholzer said that the move was mostly precautionary and Portis was “good” from a health perspective.
Thankfully he’s been able to play on with the injury and step up for the Bucks in Khris Middleton’s absence.
