G Malcolm Brogdon returning to Bucks, but Giannis still out
MILWAUKEE (AP) Guard Malcolm Brogdon is returning to the Milwaukee Bucks on Monday night after missing 30 games with a left quadriceps injury, while All-Star forward Giannis Antetokounmpo will miss a second straight contest with a sore right ankle.
Coach Joe Prunty said before the game against the Orlando Magic that Brogdon would be limited to about 15 to 20 minutes off the bench.
Brogdon was the NBA Rookie of the Year last season. He was averaging 13.3 points before getting hurt on Feb. 1 in a loss at Minnesota.
The Bucks have clinched a playoff berth but could still finish as high as the sixth seed in the Eastern Conference depending on what happens over the last three nights of the regular season. They were seventh entering action Monday night.
Antetokounmpo also missed the win Saturday night over the New York Knicks because of an ankle injury.
