MILWAUKEE -- Milwaukee Bucks forward Bobby Simmons will miss at least a month because of a stress reaction in his right heel, the team said Saturday.

Simmons was injured at practice Monday. He averaged 13.4 points and 4.4 rebounds last season after signing with the Bucks as a free agent before last season.

It is the second significant injury for a Bucks starter in a week. Center Andrew Bogut sprained his lower left leg in a scrimmage last Saturday and will miss up to eight weeks.
