The Bucks host Minnesota at the BC tonight in the 34th Annual MACC Fund Game, and you can still get tickets here. They've got a bunch of stuff going on for kids and families pregame at the BC, so head over early if you can and read more about the great work of the MACC Fund and the Bucks here.
JS: Bogut says glove may have to go
The lack of TV for the past few games is frustrating for a number of reasons, the most obvious being that we haven't had a chance to see Bogut back on the court. Fortunately, Jim Paschke posted some video over at Bucks.com where you can see Bogut blocking shots, running the court, and throwing down a nice dunk. And yes, he's not afraid to hang on the rim. Among the adjustments for Bogut has been a "contraption" on his right arm that combines an elbow wrap and glove for his hand, but not surprisingly he's less than enthusiastic about it.
"It's still a little bit questionable whether I'm going to wear that glove when the real season starts," Bogut said. "It just hinders my hand a little bit.
"The tape (on his elbow) I'll use but that I won't use. Tomorrow I'll wear it but then I'll have five more days to get this (hand) healthy."
ProBasketballTalk: Michael Redd, the same as he ever was
Rob Mahoney has a good read on Redd. Overall I didn't think there were any surprises with Redd's optimism and expectation that he'll be back with the Bucks late in the season. That's just how he is...which isn't meant as a criticism. But even he realizes his role will not be clear if he did rejoin the team, and as we saw last season, there's also no certainty that he'll be able to help the team if he did return.
On the flip side of the positive is the reality. As Jeremy writes over at Bucksketball, Redd was hurting the Bucks before he hurt himself in January, and his injury in many ways opened the door for the team's red-hot finish to the season.
