Matt Velazquez: Bud says Donte DiVincenzo’s heel bursitis flared up in the past couple days and they’re going to keep evaluating it. Asked if he’s worried about the reoccurrence so soon after DDV sat out a prolonged period and he said there’s enough worry that he’s not playing.
More Rumors in this Storyline
Matt Velazquez: Donte DiVincenzo back on the injury list and out tonight with heel bursitis (again). Will ask if this is a flare up, precautionary or something more serious.
Matt Velazquez: Caught up with Donte DiVincenzo pregame. He’s sporting a walking boot on his right foot that was put on Saturday. Said he doesn’t have a timetable, but they wanted to protect his foot and give the bursitis a chance to fully heal.
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: Bud says Donte DiVincenzo is the only player among the Bucks on the injury report who will be out today. That means Giannis is expected back for today’s game.
Chris Vivlamore: Looks like Giannis will play tomorrow at Hawks. Bucks injury report: Giannis Antetokounmpo (right quad soreness/left hip contusion) – Probable Eric Bledsoe (left hamstring soreness) – Probable Donte DiVincenzo (left bilateral heel bursitis) – Probable
Matt Velazquez: Bud says Giannis is out but Bledsoe is in. Injury to Giannis happened a couple games ago and they’ve been managing it. Donte DiVincenzo joins Giannis in being out, but everyone else is available.
Matt Velazquez: Mike Budenholzer says he doesn’t have much of an update to give on injured rookie Donte DiVincenzo. DiVincenzo has missed the past three games due to a mild right quad strain. He’s making positive progress, but he’s not all the way back yet.
Matt Velazquez: Mike Budenholzer says Thon Maker will slide into the big-man rotation following John Henson’s injury. Still deciding what to do with guards when it comes to replacing Donte DiVincenzo, but he says Sterling Brown and Matthew Dellavedova are ready. They also may only play 9 guys.
Malika Andrews: Bucks’ John Henson requires surgery on left wrist ligament and Donte DiVincenzo (left quadriceps sprain) will be out for the next three games.
