On occasional evenings at 8:00 pm central, this all-purpose thread goes up, and the comments section is where it’s going down. What Bucks news did we not cover? What topics do you want to break down further? Or is there something non-Bucks that you want to bounce off of one another? Even something non-basketball? This is the place.
Tonight’s (On) Topic: Reinforcements are on the way!
Per Jim Owczarski, both Giannis Antetokounmpo and P.J. Tucker practiced “fully” today before the Milwaukee Bucks caught a flight to Minnesota. Tucker was injured before his Bucks tenure could get underway and knowing how nagging calf injuries are, it’s great to see his return on the horizon. The Bucks have been cautious with Antetokounmpo’s knee injury, so it wouldn’t be all that surprising if he ended up missing another game...is it really necessary to risk re-aggravation against the Timberwolves?
Some good news for the #Bucks on the court - head coach Mike Budenholzer said Giannis Antetokounmpo and P.J. Tucker participated fully in practice today.— Jim Owczarski (@JimOwczarski) April 13, 2021
In terms of playing vs. the #Timberwolves, that will depend on how they respond to the work today.
Tonight’s (Off) Topic: Adult beverages
Now, I like to consider myself a casual drinker but everyone has those days where 5:00 P.M. rolls around and you say to yourself, “I could really go for a drink right now!” For me, I LOVE any Kona Brewing Company beer, but the Longboard is my favorite...if you put a shot of Don Julio Reposado in front of me, it’s not going to go to waste, either ;) what’s your go-to drink after a long day?
