Milwaukee plays its final home game of the season against the Charlotte Hornets tonight in the ever-beautiful BMO Harris Bradley Center. The matchup is a convenient bookend to the Bucks’ season at home, considering they tipped off the season in Milwaukee several months ago against Charlotte. Both teams are in far different places now, and Charlotte seems to be shutting themselves down for good tonight after Walker suffered an injury scare:

With no Kemba Walker, the Hornets’ most deadly threat is neutralized, which should also take some of the pressure off Malcolm Brogdon, who is set to return tonight for his first game since his thrilling close-out of Boston back on March 31st, and Matt Velazquez is reporting that he will start the game in place of Delly. Additionally, John Henson’s return will place Spencer Hawes’ mane back on the bench, as Kidd starts to slowly mobilize one of Milwaukee’s most potent postseason players: Playoff Henson.
Malcolm Brogdon will start for the Bucks tonight and Kidd hopes he can get 25-30 mins. Hopes Henson can play 20-25. Hawes will sit tonight.— Matt Velazquez (@Matt_Velazquez) April 10, 2017
