Milwaukee Bucks Rumors
Eric Nehm: Mike Budenholzer tells us the Bucks still plan to fly to Minnesota this afternoon, but Jon Horst has been in touch with the league about any potential changes to the schedule. The Wolves are about to tip off against the Nets in Minneapolis.
Seven-time NBA All-Star Joe Johnson has an upcoming workout with the Milwaukee Bucks later this week, HoopsHype has learned.
Johnson, 39, has appeared in 120 career playoff games and could add a veteran presence to Milwaukee’s locker room who can stretch the floor and create in isolation situations if needed. In February, Johnson was a headline member of the USA Basketball Men’s AmeriCup Qualifying Team. He averaged 11 points, nine rebounds and 6.5 assists in 26 minutes per game on 50 percent shooting from the field and 40 percent from downtown in two games.
The scene was quite familiar to fans who have watched the Bucks’ starters celebrate their teammates’ success at the end of blowout victories in the last two seasons with one notable exception: Antetokounmpo was not wearing a jersey. Instead, Antetokounmpo was wearing a black Bucks hooded sweatshirt and a pair of black joggers as he watched from the sidelines as he missed his fifth consecutive game because of left knee soreness.
