Bucks announce Malcolm Brogdon could return Saturday
As it stands right now, the Milwaukee Bucks currently are slotted as the seventh seed in the Eastern Conference and could see the return one their key players as early as Saturday night against the New York Knicks.
Tonight’s Injury Report vs Knicks:

Brogdon got bitten by the injury bug this season, partially tearing his quad back in early February. According to the injury report, the hope is that Brogdon returns for Saturday’s game at Madison Square Garden. Brogdon has been a key wing player for the Bucks since his rookie campaign, averaging 13.3 points, 3.2 assists and 3.3 rebounds per game in 46 appearances this season.
Last year, Brogdon earned NBA Rookie of the Year honors, becoming the first player ever drafted in the second round to win the award. The Bucks are currently an average defensive team, so Brogdon’s return on that side of the court ahead of the playoffs will be key.
