Khris Middleton sprained his MCL and will undergo an MRI. A Grade-1 MCL sprain sidelines a player for an average of ∼17 days (or ∼8.5 games) while a Grade-2 MCL sprain sidelines a player for an average of ∼41 days (or ∼21 games), per @Jeff Stotts: basketballnews.com/stories/khris-…1:31 AM

The friendship DeMar DeRozan has with Jrue Holiday is a long one, but the goal remains the same – beat him. To do that in this series, DeRozan knows Holiday’s defensive intensity has to be matched. Plus, a Lonzo Ball update, and it’s not great.

— Scottie Barnes
— Zion Williamson
— Rob Williams
Second team:
— Jamal Murray
— Lonzo Ball
— Michael Porter Jr
— Ben Simmons
— Clint Capela
Hoping we see these guys soon. pic.twitter.com/JteouEWgNA2:31 PM

If it looks like Jrue Holiday guards DeMar DeRozan like he has known his game for awhile, it’s because he has.
Since they were 11 years old.

The Bucks made plenty of mistakes in their Game 1 win.
Which ones were due to rust? And which ones are going to be a concern for the rest of the series?

Lonzo Ball is in Milwaukee supporting the Bulls for Game 2. Billy Donovan said he’s currently working on “maintenance strengthening” but can’t do much more due to discomfort in his knee.
Once that discomfort goes away, he’ll likely split time between Chicago and LA to rehab. – 1:28 PM

Patrick Williams on preparing to face Giannis: “Same as you get ready for anybody else. First of all, don’t be scared. I feel like a lot of people in this league are scared or nervous to guard guys like that… He puts his pants on the same way I do. He’s good, but he’s not God.” – 1:16 PM

DeMar DeRozan epic analogy alert.
On if Gm 1 can teach young Bulls what’s needed: “It’s kind of like when you first talk to a girl and you get past the part of telling somebody you like them. Now you know how to take the right approach from here.” – 12:51 PM

Bobby Portis is listed as probable on the injury report for Game 2 tonight with a right calf contusion. He told us he will play tonight after today’s shootaround.

Ahead of Game 2 in Milwaukee, Patrick Williams says the key to guarding Giannis Antetokounmpo is to not feel scared of the assignment.

The Bucks won Game 1, but their effort was far from perfect.
So, how can they improve tonight?
