Roster - Milwaukee Bucks
Bucks will be decimated in week 4, mostly on wing, where they're scraping the bottom of the barrel (looking at you Liggins). Suddenly offseason acquisitions will pay off (sorta).
CJ Miles played well in last couple of weeks,there were a couple of blunders as he went scoreless (and shotless) vs Celtics and Raptors, but overall he's a great addition to the starting lineup. Any team could use 4th starter scoring 12 per game on 80% true shooting. that won't last offcourse, but all the attention the bigger threats attract pays off. Miles will miss week 4 as his wifeMiles' wife gave birth to the couple's first child Thanksgiving night. Miles was acquired in a trade for Lou Williams last month as bucks were looking to fill the void after the departures of Pope and Gordon.
Giannis Antetokounmpo mysteriously missed a game in NBA and the Bucks nation, both NBA and NLL wide, is anticipating the news. He will miss week4 with right knee soreness. For those keeping score at home, it's the same knee that kept him out of the European Championship last summer. He was last seen participating in practice without a knee brace. Giannis emerged as probably the Bucks best player, fighting for that title with KAT (Westbrook still holds the highest +- on the team with 13, both young guns right behind him). Is he a prime candidate for a MIP this year?
Taurean Prince, starting again
Iman Shumpert will also stay in street clothes participating in treatment and rehabilitation of left knee effusion that should last a week. It's unfortunate that happened in the same week as other wing options are out.
Jarret Jack will see an increased role. The veteran probably isn't ready for an increased role as he's only shooting 28 % from the field and 17% from three, but he'll have to do with the second unit. It means less Mitchell at the PG spot, something he's slowly growing into. Another beneficiary of the injuries is Skal Labissiere. Youngster didn't play much this year as most of his minutes went to Poeltl, who's playing extremely well in his role. Skal has the skills to score a lot, which he proved in preseason and training games. There are also vivid rumors he's involved in trade discussions. Cheap and potentially good, modern stretch PF/C? is it really time to cut the cord? And then there'3 the 5th big spot, some minutes left for PatPat or youngster Jared Allen?
