Indiana Pacers: "I'm 100%". Malcolm with an update for the fans. "I'm feeling great, I've doing a lot of rehab. I've been doing as much as I can on this quarantine, but I'm 100%."

Malika Andrews: Malcolm Brogdon checks into the game for the first time to begin the second quarter. He gets a standing ovation from the Fiserv Forum crowd.
Matt Velazquez: Bud on if George Hill’s minutes tonight will be impacted by Malcolm Brogdon’s return: “George won’t play any less. I think his impact is pretty obvious to anybody.”
Malika Andrews: Malcolm Brogdon is listed as out on the NBA Injury Report for Game 5 between the Bucks and Celtics.
Chris Mannix: Mike Budenholzer said there was no further update on Malcolm Brogdon. He remains out for Game 4.
John Karalis: Coach Budenholzer says he can't commit to when Malcolm Brogdon will come back. Wouldn't rule out a Game 4 return ... just said they will continue to evaluate him
Matt Velazquez: Bud confirmed Malcolm Brogdon is out tonight. No setbacks, just not cleared to return. Also said he will stick with the starting lineup from Game 2, which included Nikola Mirotic.
Malika Andrews: Unsurprisingly, Mike Budenholzer didn’t commit to Malcolm Brodgon’s status for Game 3. Bud said they will see how he responds to today’s workout before determining if he plays. Sterling Brown said that Malcolm has “looked great” this week.
Kristian Winfield: Malcolm Brogdon had a positive injury update in his latest reevaluation. He could be back in the Bucks' lineup, which would be huge for Milwaukee's depth in the back court.
Matt Velazquez: Bud also said Malcolm Brogdon is looking more like himself, but he’s still not ready for Game 2 as expected. Hoping he continues to progress over the next 3-4 days before they make a decision on what happens next.
Matt Velazquez: Malcolm Brogdon will be OUT for Games 1 and 2 vs the Celtics. Will be reassessed after that.
Rod Beard: #Pistons Blake Griffin (sore left knee) still is listed at questionable on today's injury report for tonight's Game 1. #Bucks list Brogdon, Gasol, DiVincenzo and Snell as OUT. #DFS

Milwaukee Bucks guard Malcolm Brogdon underwent an MRI and subsequent examination today by team physician Dr. William Raasch at Froedtert & the Medical College of Wisconsin. The exam revealed a minor plantar fascia tear in Brogdon’s right foot. Brogdon will be listed as out and his status will be updated as appropriate.
Adrian Wojnarowski: Milwaukee's Malcolm Brogdon is expected to miss six-to-eight weeks with minor plantar fascia tear in his right foot, league sources tell @Malika Andrews and me.
Matt Velazquez: Today's injury report has Malcolm Brogdon listed as probable with a sternal contusion. Donte DiVincenzo remains out. Christian Wood is back up with the Bucks.
Matt Velazquez: Though listed as available earlier, Malcolm Brogdon is out tonight (left hamstring). Bud says they’re trying to be “aggressively cautious” in regards to Brogdon’s health.
Matt Velazquez: NBA daily injury report lists Khris Middleton (right finger sprain) and Malcolm Brogdon (left hamstring soreness) as OUT for the Bucks' game tonight. I asked Bud at shootaround if there were any injuries and he said there were bumps and bruises but stopped there.
Matt Velazquez: Asked Malcolm Brogdon if he's close to being full available and not on a minutes-restriction: “I’m very near it. I’ll have minute restrictions this next game, the first game of the playoffs, but I’m going to be able to play a high number of minutes. I’m getting to that point.”
Matt Velazquez: Joe Prunty confirms Malcolm Brogdon is out tonight. He was evaluated today and it was determined he wasn’t ready.
Matt Velazquez: Joe Prunty also said that clinching a playoff berth doesn't affect how the Bucks will handle bringing back Brogdon and Delly. They'll be back when they're healthy, hopefully sooner than later. Would be positive for them to get some games in before the postseason.
Matt Velazquez: Bucks list Thon Maker as probable for tonight’s game. Malcolm Brogdon and Matthew Dellavedova are still out. @BenSteeleMJS asked for an update on Brogdon/Dellavedova yesterday at practice and there’s still no concrete timeline.
David Aldridge: Bucks, for now, don’t think they need to make a deal to replace Malcolm Brogdon (torn quad, out 6-8 weeks) on the roster. Plenty of backcourt depth (Brown, Kilpatrick, Munford, etc.) Could still make a trade by deadline, but not b/c of Brogdon injury; looking for a big.
Matt Velazquez: Prunty on Brogdon's calf soreness & being out tonight: “It was something that we’ve been monitoring and seeing if he was going to be available and we made the decision today. ... In terms of the exact moment that it happened I can’t give you that, but we’ve kept an eye on it."
Matt Velazquez: Jason Kidd doesn’t know how long Malcolm Brogdon will be out. Just taking it day by day. Gary Payton II activated on two-way.
Eric Nehm: Malcolm Brogdon back in the starting lineup for the Bucks tonight. He will be kept to around 25 minutes.
Charles F. Gardner: Bucks coach Jason Kidd says Brogdon and Henson went through contact drills last 2 days and should be ready Monday vs. Hornets.
Charles F. Gardner: Bucks coach Jason Kidd said Malcolm Brogdon (back) and John Henson (thumb) are unlikely to play Thurs. vs. Pacers.

Free agents left on the Wolves radar: Frank Kaminsky, Gorgui Dieng… and maybe Boogie Cousins? I’m waiting to hear a little bit more information on that. Also, I was told they may wait out the KD and Kyrie situations that when those two players are traded, likely separate trades, that other players could hit the market. Maybe somebody ends up in Brooklyn, Brooklyn buys out that player. So the Wolves may wait out those situations before adding another free agent.
Adrian Wojnarowski on Kevin Durant’s potential trade: “The market is still taking shape, and I think it’s incumbent on some of the other teams to be creative and start bringing to Brooklyn ideas, going out and seeing if they can get players, picks that would put the kind of package it would take to get Kevin Durant. Brooklyn’s got time on its side. They have a lot of time left in the offseason and they have a player in KD who has four years left on his contract. They don’t have to rush into a deal.”
The Wolves spoke with the Spurs a number of times about DeJounte Murray, he has a number of fans here. The Wolves were very, very interested in bringing Dejounte Murray to Minnesota, just not at the price that Atlanta paid.

“The Lakers have yet, I’m told, to be aggressive in trying to put a deal together to get [Kyrie] from Brooklyn. That may come, that may evolve with time. But so far right now, there’s no traction really on deals with either Irving or Durant.” 🗣️ @wojespn
John Clark: I’m told despite reports, the Sixers are not pursuing Kyrie Irving I’m told there were discussions internally about Kyrie and other players, but the Sixers never entered into actual talks with Brooklyn As far as Kevin Durant, remember he has a big say in where he will wind up
Those who know Durant cite two primary factors: a rocky Nets season that ended in a first-round playoff sweep; and the franchise’s soured relationship with Irving, his close friend. Durant doesn’t see much hope for a revival under the circumstances, those sources say. And he’s unhappy that his friend is unhappy.
As one insider sympathetic to Durant noted, “Kyrie sabotaged everything,” but Durant is reacting more to the effects than the cause, and he now views the Nets as unsalvageable. “There’s no use in (him) taking sides when it’s all too far gone,” the person said. In essence, the Nets were right in principle, but wrong in practical terms, failing to understand that making Irving upset “was going to drive Kevin away.” It’s instructive to note that for all the chaos, all the havoc and all the stress, Durant still wants to play with Irving, according to league insiders.
