The Milwaukee Bucks announced that guard Malcolm Brogdon has now being listed as probable and is expected to play in Wednesday’s Game 5 of their Eastern Conference Semifinals against the Boston Celtics.
Brogdon has been out since tearing the plantar fascia in his right foot March 15 against the Miami Heat. In the 64 games he played in, all of which he started, Brogdon averages of 15.6 points, 4.5 rebounds, 3.2 assists per contest. He was also very efficient, shooting 50.5 % from the field, including 42.6% on three pointers.
Bucks head coach Mike Budenholzer told reporters that Nikola Mirotic will remain in the starting lineup for Wednesday’s Game 5 with Brogdon coming off the pine. Brogdon will be under a minutes restriction in his return game, but how many minutes he will get is still unclear.
