MILWAUKEE, Wis. — Brook Lopez underwent successful back surgery Thursday in Los Angeles and is out indefinitely.

The Bucks center hasn’t played since Milwaukee’s season opener against Brooklyn where he scored eight points, grabbed five rebounds and had three blocks in 28 minutes.

The 33-year-old Stanford graduate joined the Bucks beginning in the 2018-2019 season.

The team said updates on his rehab “will be provided as appropriate.”
