While the Timberwolves continue their attempt to carve out something of a reliable identity, the Bucks look to be slowly nursing themselves back to health. All signs point to Semi Ojeleye being available off the bench for the first time this season, and Bobby Portis may be right there next to him (both were listed as probable on the latest injury report).
"Honestly, I was thinking I was going to get back in the next couple days, the next couple days, the next couple days and then it kind of took a little longer than I hoped, but it was all in God's time and now it's time to go."— Eric Nehm (@eric_nehm) October 27, 2021
Ojeleye's expected to make his Bucks debut tonight.
And the Timberwolves are as solid an opponent to debut against for both players. Talented but raw, Minnesota sits at 2-1 without having any signature wins; its a young roster with a new(ish) coach at the helm who have top-end scorers and none of the solid system that reliably gets secondary and tertiary players meaningfully involved. What better time than now to have some colder bodies get a little work in?
Jrue Holiday, Brook Lopez, and Donte DiVincenzo are all out for Milwaukee. Nobody is out for the Timberwolves.
