Jae'Sean Tate's chances at making an NBA roster took a hit Thursday, as it was reported by Matt Velasquez of the Journal Sentinel that the former Buckeye has a suffered a broken finger in his right hand and is out indefinitely for the Milwaukee Bucks summer league team.
I've had some people ask me about Jae'Sean Tate, who is on the Bucks' summer league roster but has not yet played. He has a fractured finger on his right hand and will remain out.

Tate went undrafted in June's NBA Draft but signed on with the Bucks to play on their summer league squad. Milwaukee has played three games so far this summer and Tate did not appear in any of those contests.
Tate was expected to play in The Basketball Tournament as part of team Big X alongside the likes of Andrew Dakich and Kam Williams, but will likely miss the summer tournament, according to Dakich who appeared on 105.7 The Zone in Columbus on Thursday afternoon.
Team X captain Andrew Dakich to @1057TheZone on Jae'Sean Tate: "JT's unfortunately injured, but he'll probably be there for us for support."
