Thus far they’ve weathered it without incurring further damage, but it does make gelling consistent rotations and lineups a bit of a challenge. Knowing my luck, Mike Budenholzer will plug Semi Ojeleye into the starting lineup tonight just to keep my preview graphics on their toes.
The good news is the Bucks have already gotten one over the San Antonio Spurs at less-than-full strength. Their 121-111 victory on the road looks less impressive with the Spurs 1-4 record, but they’re still the Spurs. A tough win in a place where visiting teams rarely walk away victorious is nothing to sneeze at. Can they repeat the trick tonight in friendly territory?
