Jim Owczarski: #Bucks rookie Jordan Nwora has been listed as “out” for awhile with a thigh contusion and he’s been upgraded to “probable.” He’s out getting a good workout in with the rest of the rookies / two-ways currently.
More Rumors in this Storyline
A sprained calf kept Jordan Nwora from participating in drills or 5-on-5 games at the combine. Instead of playing, Nwora is meeting with teams at the combine in advance of setting up individual workouts in the 10 days between the end of the combine and the NCAA’s May 29 deadline to make a decision on whether to stay in the draft. The injury has only added to the uncertainty about his final decision.
“I’m still 50-50,” Nwora said. “Just going to be the feedback I’m getting. Obviously, I wasn’t able to play this week, I wanted to play really badly. It happens. I should be good to start doing stuff next week, work out a little. If I hear what I want to hear, I’ll stay and if not I’ll go back to school.”
Louisville forward Jordan Nwora has a “small injury” that could affect his performance at the NBA draft combine this week, Cardinals coach Chris Mack told the Courier Journal.

Now, there appears to be interest on both sides to have Howard back for his physical and defensive play. Howard, 35, averaged 7.0 points and 8.4 rebounds in 17.3 minutes last season in Philadelphia, his 17th in the NBA.
