The Milwaukee Bucks have bad news ahead of their Monday night clash. The Wisconsin team has been on a roll since the All-Star break, winning five games in a row. Notably, the new head coach Doc Rivers has reshaped the team since he took over mid-season. Amid this newfound zeal in the Bucks’ dominant run after the All-Star break, the team might have a grave issue in the form of Giannis Antetokounmpo.

The 6 ’11 superstar, known for his grit and force, might take the back seat in the upcoming clash. When the team finally had the opportunity to get back to the second seed, the latest Bucks injury report ahead of the LA Clippers could delay the prize. The team listed the Greek Freak in the Questionable category owing to an injury in his left Achilles and Khris Middleton is still out with a left ankle sprain.

Giannis Antetokounmpo has been on the injury report quite consistently this season and astonishingly he has missed only one game so far this season. He was on the injury list as a Probable for the previous game against the Chicago Bulls as well with a knee injury. However, he turned up for the game and didn’t merely play out his minutes, but dominated the game.

The 2x MVP dropped 46 points with 16 rebounds to lead the Bucks to a blow-out 97-113 win over the Bulls. This is just a snippet of the amount of commitment Giannis delivers to his franchise. Over the last 11 seasons with the Bucks, he has displayed his loyalty and commitment to the Wisconsin franchise in a sincere fashion. Especially, the superstar’s magical return from the injury during the 2022 Championship run.

 

It wouldn’t be surprising to find him lacing up for the Clipper clash tomorrow. Nevertheless, the Bucks-Clippers game can turn into a visual spectacle, considering the fact that both sides have a lot to prove in the league. Let’s take a closer look at the Monday night clash.

Clippers vs Bucks – A star-studded affair

Just like the Bucks, the Clippers also have star players on the injury report. During the Clippers’ last game, Russell Westbrook fractured his left hand and has been ruled out indefinitely. On the other hand, Paul George had made his return to the court after missing out on two games. In the meantime, Kawhi Leonard showed signs of injury ahead of the All-Star break, but he seemed to have got it all together.

However, it isn’t just about the injury scare. The teams have a lot to prove in the league. The Clippers found themselves in a slump after their dominant run. And the Bucks fired their previous coach mid-season, in an attempt to strengthen their defense. While the team looked shaky in the beginning under Doc Rivers, they seemed to have found their footing now. Nevertheless, they will look to continue their domination in the coming games as well.
